A relaxed & personalised experience

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 a small group of independent independent, private practices, Taylor-West & Co Optometrists aim to provide the antithesis to the usual tiresome optician experience.

A Personal Service

Sophie 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. We have locations in Hove, Lewes, East Dulwich and Clapham.

What Our Lewes Clients Say…

Fantastic service, really cool atmosphere, not like a stuffy clinical opticians….lots of really unusual glasses to choose from…. Staff are really friendly and informative…. Makes getting new glasses into a really enjoyable and fashionable experience !


I would highly recommend this independent opticians. A very different experience to that of the usual High Street chains. They have a wonderful choice of frames and Ibo so patient in helping me to choose. In fact, I love them so much I went back and got a stunning pair of sunglasses.


Great experience at Taylor & West Lewes! Ibo at reception was super friendly as ever, plus had an amazingly thorough and kind eye examination by Sophie (Taylor-West). I went in with concerns about my eyes and came out completely de-stressed, fully understanding what is going on for my eye conditions right now. Wonderful choice of frames to choose from (including a whole wall of the amazing Kirk & Kirk styles!). Cannot recommend enough.


Excellent service. Was afforded plenty of time and patience when choosing my frames. Ibo was first class, and gave an honest opinion on the frames I was trying on. I eventually chose some Ahlem frames in smoked light. Will definitely go back again when I require a new pair.


I visited this optician to have a check on my vision for driving. They were friendly and helpful and when i wanted some glasses they were very helpful in helping me to choose and were able to advise without being too pushy. They also were competitive. I recommend this optician to everyone.
