About Us

Opticians in Nottingham with a timeless tradition of customer care

Our traditions of style and substance will make you feel like you’re part of our family. Few opticians in Nottingham have such a proud pedigree stretching back 70 years.

Quality takes time —so our eye tests are thorough — lasting 30 minutes, unlike the 20 minutes allocated at most high street opticians.

And our styling consultations simply take as long as you need to find the perfect eyewear.

Our service is all about you — we take time to learn about your lifestyle and work demands.

Then you receive perfectly personalised eyewear advice and solutions tailored to your exact requirements.

Personal service from the professionals – At Johns Opticians you’re more than just a number

Our comfortable premises combine cutting-edge eye test technology with a range of unique frames and comfortable contact lenses.

You’re in knowledgeable hands with our Bsc Hons (GOC) qualified optometrists, and we’re trusted AOP members too.

Our clinical assessment service is first-class. We’ll conduct thorough assessments of more complex eye care issues and assess whether a hospital referral is necessary.

You’ll always have peace of mind at Johns Opticians — the breadth and depth of our professional expertise is second-to-none.

And this is matched by a focus on customer care — we’ll explain our solutions to your eye care needs in a straightforward step-by-step manner.

You can be confident you’ll receive the best care possible — we’ve built our reputation on bespoke customer care.

No matter your age or your eye care needs, you’re in safe hands with us.

Great personal service from Johns Opticians. Both my mum and I had our eyes tested there recently which was very... thorough. Even had photos taken of the inside of our eyes so that the Optician could show us how healthy our eyes are. Really interesting having that explained to us and what we need to be aware of such as signs of blood pressure. Both mum and I bought varifocal glasses which are a much higher quality than your mass produced cheaper Opticians. I’ve had the cheaper varifocals before and ended up never wearing them due to the narrow channel of vision and distortion at the edge of the lenses. Johns Opticians are a bit more expensive but what you get is much better quality. The channel of vision is so wide that there is barely any distortion at the edge of the lens. You can even reuse an old pair of frames if you want to keep the cost down. Both mum and I are really happy with our new specs and would highly recommend Johns Opticians..read more

Fantastic service, the glasses I got have been brilliant and lasted well. Been to the big chains before and felt like... a number where as here it was 1on1 personal service and actually felt like they listened and cared. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.read more

Been getting my glasses here since I first needed them 14 years ago. Usual first class thorough and pleasant service... but I was surprised at the cost of my varifocals which seems to have gone up a lot. Maybe I'm just out of touch with current costs I don't know! Great service but perhaps some cheaper options for those of us who prefer functionality to style?read more

Have gone to Johns Opticians for years. Always get a thorough eye test and good advise. Amy ,the receptionist, was very... helpful and very patient with me as it always takes me ages to choose new glasses. Once chosen, my new glasses were ready for collection very quickly. I just wish there was a little more choice of mid priced frames.read more

Always get a very thorough examination. T The optician seems very knowledgeable and things are clearly and simply... explained. Always time for questions. I always leave feeling I am being properly cared for and looked after, been a customer for many years now. Maybe a little more expensive than the chains, but definitely worth it to know to know you're being cared for properly.read more
