Our designers are a blend of some of the most well-known prestige houses and specialist boutique names. The current preferred designer brands of choice include all those below that you can click on to read more, but of course things change quickly and we are happy to order in specific styles just for you.
At iSpy we have an entire floor dedicated to designer brands. For you to look your best, it’s important for us to offer the best to suit your personal style. To keep things exciting and because eyewear is so closely linked with fashion, frames and brands are carefully selected and vary from season to season.

YOUR EYES ARE
We want them to stay that way!
We are known for both our investment in the latest equipment and for the thoroughness of our eye examination. This is partly because every eye examination takes a minimum of 30 minutes and all tests are carried out by a qualified ophthalmic optician. We don’t think anyone benefits from moving from one person to another for different tests.
YOUR EYE TEST
At iSpy we have an “an inclusive policy” whereby our opticians carry out the tests they feel are necessary for your age and particular needs, all without charging add ons or extras. Clinical Imaging services are available.
The results of your eye examination will always be carefully explained to you, so you always leave feeling well informed. All of our optometrists are accredited in cataract referral and wet macular degeneration referral, which means you are fast-tracked when sent for assessment to the hospital.
A WORLD OF INFORMATION
Our eye examinations typically include:
- Visual acuity (what you can see)
- Refraction (the prescription you need)
- Ocular examination (inside eye)
- Colour vision tests
- Glaucoma check
- Macular degeneration investigation
- Visual field exam
- Contact lens assessment
DO I NEED AN EYE TEST?
Hold out your hand at arm’s length in front of your face. Now hold up three fingers. If you can’t see every finger, you most probably need an eye test. If you can see four fingers you need another form of test. If all you can see is a little lepriceun dancing, you need to leave the establishment you are reading this in and sleep it off. Knowing whether you need an eye test really is even simpler than that. You can either be guided by the suggested frequency of visits suggested by UK healthcare guidelines, or you can be needs guided i.e. there is something wrong with your vision that may need examination.
For most people, the recommended national visit schedule is:
Under 16 – Yearly
16 – 69 Years – Every two years
Over 70’s – Yearly
Glaucoma patients/those with a family history of Glaucoma – Yearly
Children are expensive, we all know that. Luckily, not everything has to dent your budget because eye examinations and children’s’ glasses are actually free (and paid for by the NHS)! National Guidelines recommend testing under 16s every year and we think its important your kids get tested (even pre-school!).
There’s a lot of reasons to choose iSpy and to visit:
We’re fun. We make sure kids want to come back (without sweet bribery being required). For pre-school children, we use pictures instead of letters which adds to this!. We use the latest technology, we offer the most comprehensive eye test on the high street. Kids need their eyes testing (80% of learning through the eyes and research shows that as many as one in five children may have an undiagnosed sight problem).
– We have a large range of children’s frames (if required) …and you won’t see a sign of any pressure from us. We quite literally just want to help.
