Our History

J.S.Albright BSc. M.B.C.O

I built this practice some thirty five years ago on the site of the old post office, all of the fixtures and fittings are hand made and custom built by myself. Our current theme is black and white, art nouveau.

In designing the dispensing area, I paid particular attention to lighting, so that we use colour corrected mercury discharge tubes, giving superb illumination in near daylight conditions.

We are wheel chair friendly and if mobility is a problem it is possible to park right outside the front door.

I graduated from Aston university in 1981, having been attracted to optics by the combined possibilities of running my own show and the ability to meet interesting people - In my profession I frequently learn more from my patients than vice-versa. I have been ably assisted by my practice manager, Pam who has been in the practice for over twenty years.

Working to together we have refined our dispensing skills so that, quite independently we very often are in complete agreement as to which spectacle frame suits best. There is a great deal to consider when choosing the right frame apart from simple fashion considerations.
