Second Opinions

You only have one pair of eyes – we’re here to help you look after them

Patients often come to Parker & Hammond Opticians after having a less than positive experience with a previous optician. Whatever the problem - the quality of eyecare, problems with new spectacles, contact lens discomfort – we understand that the care of your eyes should not end when you walk out of the door.

Experience, expertise and professional eye care

Parker & Hammond has served the eyecare needs of the local community for over 70 years. We are able to offer you friendly and professional advice by our team of skilled optometrists. We constantly invest in the latest eye examination equipment, professional development and specialist training to ensure that you get the very best eye health service every time you visit.

Perhaps you may have been told that you are unsuitable for contact lens wear? Many patients who have previously been advised they can only wear spectacles have then come to us and have been successfully fitted with comfortable and convenient contact lenses by our highly skilled and experienced optometrists.

We are well respected by other health professionals including ophthalmologists, GPs, nurses and other non-specialist opticians, who recommend our professionalism, skill and caring service by regularly referring patients to us. We enjoy a close and trusting working relationship with these local professionals who entrust their patients to our care.

Professional expertise, personal service

Our specialist knowledge and experience enable us to offer second opinions that you can trust, and all aspects of our patient care are performed by fully qualified and experienced optometrists and opticians.

If you’ve been let down before, don’t give up on finding the level of eye care that you deserve. Visit Parker & Hammond and trust your eye health to the professionals.
