A well respected opticians with experienced, fully trained staff. Coupled with our own manufacturing facility, so we can cut our prices without cutting any corners. Which means real value for money.

Backed up with a service that’s lightning fast, yet super slick.

When we say ‘direct from the factory prices’ we mean it.

Spectacles Outlet is different. It’s a top-notch optician at the front. With our own factory at the back.

Eye health

Your eye health is important so you’ll be pleased to know that we take visual health seriously. Our Optometrists provide full eye health examinations not only to give you an accurate lens prescription but also to identity any potential eye conditions at an early stage. We highly recommend regular eye testing for everyone and, for children, at least every 2 years from pre-school. Eye Testing at Spectacles Outlet.
