COVID-19 Update (18/04/20)

As an essential primary care provider, we remain available by appointment. The Hove and Dulwich practices will no longer be manned from 28th March until further notice. If you need to order or collect spectacles or contact lenses, please email us. Phone are diverted to home and emails will be constantly monitored. If you need to order contact lenses we will arrange to have these delivered directly from the manufacturer to your home.

We are no longer performing routine appointments in either practice. If you have an ocular emergency/loss of vision/painful eye/contact lens-related problem, please email with details of your problem/symptoms and your phone number and our optometrist, Sophie, will call you back as soon as possible. If you have lost or broken your glasses please call the number for the practice closest to you and we will help with urgent replacements where we possible can.

See your Optician with new eyes!

Don’t you just hate feeling like you’re being given a sales patter when you go to the opticians? Do you really need that extra test, those new glasses or special lens coatings? Isn’t it annoying when you’re not given enough time during your consultation to ask questions and feeling like you’ve just been passed along the conveyor belt? Well, we hate all that too.

Going to the optician can be a stressful experience. As an independent, private practice, Taylor-West & Co Optometrists aim to provide the antithesis to the usual tiresome optician experience. Sophie Taylor-West has worked in practices where the emphasis is on selling glasses and not on the quality of care. It’s no fun for you or the optometrist. If you’d like an enjoyable experience in a stylish, relaxed and caring optical practice, with the most thorough eye examination you’ve probably ever had, we’d love to meet you and show you why our service is second to none.
