Established in Congleton, Cheshire in 1984, Lyn Thompson's original practice was in what is now Weatherspoons. We moved to 27 West Street, and then to our current location at 5 West Street in 1996.
With our second practice opening in Kidsgrove, Stoke-on-Trent in 1986
With 2 ophthalmic optician, 2 dispensing assistants, 3 receptionists and a practice manager
we have grown over the years.
At the end of 2018 we closed our Kidsgrove practice after 32 years.
Today optometry is not merely supplying spectacles and contact lenses; there are many different facets involved including Diabetic screening, glaucoma co-management, cataract referral, orthoptics and children’s eye care, to name but a few.
A thorough eye examination can also reveal a great deal about your general health- high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol and other more serious conditions. We recommend you have you eyes tested at least every 2 years, unless otherwise advised.
On our website we have tried to cover most areas of optometry and outlined how we as optometrists can provide a complete eye care package for our patients. However, if there are any aspects of optometry we have not covered please do not hesitate to get in touch!
