Affordable private eyecare

We offer complete transparency of costs. Professional fees are not bundled with spectacles. This allows us to maintain a no-pressure, relaxed environment where we can make recommendations without incentives to oversell. Honest pricing lets us act honestly, which is essential for the trust that our clients value.

Spectacle prices

The prices of our products are competitive because we do not rely on them to subsidise our professional services. Our clients do best when dispensed high-quality lenses and frames, which are better than low-cost alternatives, but like-for-like we do not expect you to find a lower price at another high-street competitor, sold with the same service conditions.

NHS services

NHS Sight Tests are provided by most opticians. These tests are not required to include all of the investigations recommended by the College of Optometrists or relevant NICE guidelines, and are limited in their scope of practice to the detection of abnormality, rather than more the comprehensive diagnosis, monitoring and management of eye conditions.*

Johnson & Furze is focused on providing the highest standards of care. However, we do offer clinics dedicated to government-funded eye tests and optical vouchers. We also make it possible for NHS eligible adults to benefit from our normal level of specialist care through a charge based on the shortfall of the government contribution.
