We are passionate about doing everything possible to avoid any sight loss that could be prevented, helping people to see the world clearly and comfortably, and offering spectacles that they want to wear.

It is our aim to do all this in a warm, relaxed and friendly environment where patients are treated as people.

Principal Optometrists

Dr Michael Johnson and Mrs Hayley Johnson (nèe Furze) are the only optometrists in South Gloucestershire who are qualified as Level 4 healthcare professionals and licensed as Independent Prescribers to issue medication.

Training in medical clinics and higher qualifications give you peace of mind when you are told everything is healthy, or if there is a problem we can be trusted to detect it early and give you recommendations based on the latest evidence.

Clinical audit

Clinical Audit

We monitor outcomes so we can identify areas for improvement, and can confidently say that many more of our patients are very satisfied with their eye examination than industry standards, and if they have a health problem they have a much lower chance of it being missed or mismanaged.


SPECTRALIS 4D Eye Health Check

In addition to our expertise, we use the latest diagnostic technology that is not available in high-street opticians. Our equipment includes the SPECTRALIS imaging platform, which produces detailed four-dimensional images of the retina and optic nerve – with the 4th dimension being time, owing to its ability to precisely compare images taken on different visits.

Zeiss vision centre

Lenses to see better

We can recommend and design lenses with complex surfaces to give the prescribed power over the widest area possible, so your eyes can see naturally. Advanced treatments to protect against scratches and reduce glare are included as standard. We have been chosen by ZEISS as regional specialists, although our independence means that we are not limited to one lens manufacturer.

Spectacle frames

Frames to look great

We deliberately avoid mass-market brands that can be found everywhere that use the same generic shapes to fit the same average person. Instead, we have curated a collection from manufacturers who design high-quality frames for individuals that come in a range of shapes, sizes and personalities. These companies often produce frames with the most interesting shapes and varied colours, and make smaller quantities that are only available in selected specialists.
