Eye Tests during the Coronavirus Outbreak?

Our online booking service for eye tests is currently offline during the Coronavirus outbreak. If you require an urgent eye test, please contact us directly on 01772 312213, or email

As the situation continues to unfold, more and more optical stores are closing their doors. So what should you do if you lose or break your glasses? That’s where we come in.

With our high tech on-site lab and a stock of thousands of lenses, we are able to offer glasses in less than one hour for 99% of prescriptions. That means you can come in, choose a new style, and leave with your new glasses in one visit.

Our equipment, including the state of the art Nidek ME1200 pictured above, can cut a prescription lens to any shape in under 10 minutes.

Not only that, but you’ll find the best selection of frames in the North-West, so you can find a style you love to wear. Our ranges include famous designers like Hugo Boss, Chloe’, Lacoste, Jimmy Choo, Kate Spade, Porsche Design, as well as some of the best quality independent designers in the world.

An #nhs worker came to us with broken glasses. I made these cute @chloefashion ones for her in her prescription in less than an hour. Happy to help support those on the front line – that's why we're here! — The Spectacle Factory (@SpecFactory) April 4, 2020

If you’re on a budget, don’t worry as our complete glasses start from under £100. We also have a great range of kids glasses and sports glasses.

What if I need an eye-test?

We are still able to conduct an eye test for you if required urgently or in an emergency. This is to relieve some of the burden that would be placed on hospital services instead. Some procedures have changed in order to safeguard you and our employees, but you will still receive a thorough eye examination.

Precautions for Covid-19

Our store is ultra-modern and spacious, cleaned routinely, and every precaution is being taken to sterilise all surfaces and ourselves in between contact with clients. It is very important that you call us first to arrange an appointment so we can ensure there is proper spacing between customer visits.
