We are as different to the conveyor belt-style, mass market opticians as you are to our next customer. We believe that every face, every eye, every lens requires bespoke, boutique care. And that’s exactly what we deliver.

How? Independence. We are as independent and as different as you are. Independence is at the heart of what we do and why we do it. We pride ourselves on being a key cog in Birmingham’s independent trader scene, and that’s exactly why we have chosen the stunning and historic Great Western Arcade as our home, a lighthouse of independence in what can sometimes seem like a sea of High Street chains.

As an independent store we can source eyewear and lenses that are not available anywhere elsewhere in the city. We boast a raft of brands exclusive to us, so you can leave knowing you’re wearing frames that are few and far between.

So pop in, grab a drink from our fridge, and let’s have a chat.

We’re ready to contribute to what makes you you.
