From a love of biology,

to a Lead Optometrist

While attending boarding school in Kenya, Sushma was inspired and encouraged by her biology teacher and became engrossed in the study of anatomy – the spark that would bring Vision Clinic into fruition.

With the ongoing support of her father and a commitment to providing a quality service, Vision Clinic is now a well-established optometry practice cherished by the local community.

As a child, Sushma was not always as confident as she is now; a profound memory was the day that her family made the 7 hour journey from her village to Nairobi so that Sushma could have access to contact lenses. For that reason, she was determined to make her own optometry clinic as accessible as possible to local children.

Sushma felt immense relief after her contact lens fitting – she was finally able to say goodbye to the ‘Diedre Barlow’ spectacles that had caused her to have such low self-esteem in the past. With an awareness that we live in a world where first impressions are paramount, Sushma strives to give her own patients a confidence boost, ensuring that every child looks good and feels good when they step out of the practice.

Some kind words from our
happy customers

I required a specialist to carry out a field vision test. This clinic was the only local practice who could do this. They were extremely helpful, not least because I have a hearing impairment and I was able to correspond via email. I'm revisiting for new glasses, I would recommend.

D Hosking

I would recommend Vision clinic to anyone and the warm and friendly service was second to none. I received a thorough eye examination and my new glasses were ready within a week.

G Dawson

My husband goes to Vision Clinic, he said that you were very helpful and I also found that you were. My new glasses fit very well and don’t slide down my nose.

L Hoggart

I had a great experience with the very friendly staff who had great customer service. I saved money on buying two pairs of glasses, including one with clip on magnetic sunglasses with the help of Sushma and Joanne.

A Pude

Amazing staff and very professional at work. Loved the service and the care. All the tests were on point and I was given the best prescription. Also, I love the frames you have. Thank you so much.

L Prasad

Brilliant service once again from Sushma and her team. I absolutely love my new glasses, well worth travelling 80 plus miles for! Sushma's professionalism and her help with choosing new frames is fantastic. I would definitely recommend

L Edwards

An excellent local Optician. Friendly, informative staff, a large range of frames in all price brackets, including an option to pay in instalments for your glasses. Thorough eye examination and testing with any issues quickly flagged up for further attention. Completely happy with the service at Vision Clinic.

A Larkin

I have had 8 pairs of glasses in the past 7 years because of significant deterioration of my eye sight. Sometimes the glasses were changed after 6 months. However, I have had the MiYOSMART glasses for 6 months and my eyes have not deteriorated further. I am very pleased with this outcome.

E Mason

Discovered Vision Clinic after something blew in my eye and scratched it up nicely. I don’t know why I hadn’t been to this local business before, but I’ll definitely be going back in future. Friendly, professional, and efficient.

R Eves

Staff are lovely and very helpful, excellent service and had a great experience with Sushma and Joanne. 10/10 would recommend.

E Richards

I thoroughly recommend Vision Clinic. After visiting 'chain' opticians for so many years, it was a breathe of fresh air to walk in to such a professional, welcoming and unique opticians. The staff are wonderful and most definitely help you choose a frame which suit you best; offering 1 to 1 advice on which style would suit your face shape better. The shop holds a range of glasses so there is something for everyone. A true hidden gem!

A Robson

Couldn't recommend this optician's enough. Andrea and Sushma were so helpful in helping me find a frame that I loved. Lenses were made up quickly and I love my new glasses! Will definitely be going back.

M Fairfax

The price was so reasonable. Great service and amazing staff!
