Southwold opticians have stayed open throughout the pandemic as an essential service. However, we are operating by appointment only. Please book an appointment before visiting. Even though lockdown is ending, we are maintaining our safety procedures.
We are pleased to be able to offer audiology and hearing care at Southwold opticians again. Hearing assessments are free.
We were thrilled to be named best Independent optician in the UK at the prestigious Optician Awards in 2016. Our sister practice in Beccles won the same award in 2014, making us the only optician in the UK to win this award twice!
