Tell us about your business?

“We offer a whole range of quality prescription glasses to suit all pockets, from budget to designer glasses/sunglasses, including Swarovski crystals.

“Lenses are custom made to your requirements and we can give impartial advice on choosing your glasses to suit your prescription needs.”

How did you start?

“I started in the opticians 30 years ago, and have experience in all aspects of optical manufacturing. This also included managerial experience in seven different shops throughout my time as an employee.

“My next adventure was when I was self-employed, and supplying independent opticians. Then I decided to open a market stall where customers can bring their prescriptions directly to us.

“We’ve now had our well-established business on Kirkby Market for five years, and because we keep our overheads low, we can pass our prices on to reflect this in our wide range of glasses and sunglasses.”
