Why us?

Jo Padmore Eyewear has been correcting the eyes of Didsbury and beyond for over ten years, one loyal customer at a time. The business has gone from strength to strength, almost entirely due to kind words and warm-hearted recommendations from our clientele.

Didsbury EyewearOur team is small, focused and professional, boasting a total of over 75 years’ industry experience. Jo herself has been qualified for over 17 years and will take the time to make your eye test not only thorough and precise, but generally rather enjoyable!

We also pride ourselves on our ability to choose the right frames for faces – and fear not; we are not totally oblivious to the current financial climate. We are cost-conscious and offer solutions for every budget and age group.

We rely on your custom to keep the business we love growing and thriving, so above all else, our aim is to provide you with the best eyecare you have ever experienced.


A couple of things that Jo has a bee in her bonnet about…

Children’s eyecare

All children under 16 are entitled to a free eye test at Jo Padmore Eyewear. Jo can’t emphasise enough the importance of checking children’s eyes from an early age. School checks are not enough and good eyecare is paramount to your child’s social and academic development. More importantly for them, we’ll make it fun and help them learn a little about their own eyes – everything from 3D glasses to colour vision and a little sticker just to say “well done”.

Local business

We are proud to be a local, independent company and value our place in the community. Jo absolutely loves Didsbury and feels very passionate about supporting local business wherever possible, encouraging others to do the same.
