Beccles optician in Suffolk. We have stayed open throughout the pandemic as an essential service. However, we are continuing to operate by appointment only. Please book an appointment before visiting. Even though lockdown is ending, we are maintaining our safety procedures.
In January 2020, we moved to 1 Smallgate, just across from our old practice in Exchange Square (in the old NatWest bank and beside Twyfords café) in Beccles. Our new premises are much larger and accessible, with automatic double doors.
We offer audiology services including free hearing tests, ear wax removal and hearing aids.
We were thrilled to be named the UK’s best Independent Optician at the prestigious Optician Awards in 2014. Our sister practice in Southwold went on to win the same award in 2016, making us the only optician in the UK to win this award twice! If you are looking for a safe Beccles optician that takes customer service seriously, we would be very happy to help you.
