We are proud to be an independent, family run practice.


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 2 ophthalmic opticians,  2 dispensing opticians,  2 receptionists

and a practice manager

we have grown over the years. 




In 2013 we were delighted to be able to enlarge our premises by expanding into number 7 West Street. The newly equiped extension is called Congleton Eyecare Centre. 







In 1986 we opened a second practice at 65 Liverpool Road, Kidsgrove, however at the end of 2018 we closed our Kidsgrove practice.



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!
