We do eyes, and we like to think we do them rather well.

We know when it comes to choosing someone to take exceptional care of your ocular health, it should be someone you can trust and feel at ease with.

Clinical excellence, professionalism and superior client service are a given, but at Jo Padmore Eyewear, there’s just a little bit of magic too!…

…At the heart of the practice is a small, highly skilled team boasting an impressive 120+ years combined clinical experience. (We said Mark could have a lie down after his 60th year!).

We are experienced problem solvers, so all aspects of your visual needs are taken into account.

We listen, and we ask the right questions to establish the right solution for you (and yes, sometimes the solution is wine!).

We’ll give you a warm welcome and instantly put you at ease.

We want you to experience the best eye test, and leave with the most gorgeous, most accurately prescribed glasses, sunglasses and contact lenses you’ve ever owned.

Most of all, we want you to love them!

I've never thought of going to the opticians as anything other than a chore, but it's a joy to go to Jo Padmore's. They have a great range of fabulous glasses, and it's a treat to just browse. Jo and her team are experts who really take the time and trouble to understand, inform and advise on what's best for you. They are so friendly and full of chat.


After searching for ages for some fashionable new specs, I recently visited Jo Padmore Eyewear. Jo’s shop is very stylish and I was hoping her glasses would be too. I wasn’t disappointed – the range of styles is amazing.


What makes Jo Padmore different to other opticians is the time they take finding the right frames for you and your prescription. I’ve always been delighted with the results.


Jo Padmore’s is a mecca for people looking for unique, high quality, well-crafted and beautiful frames. I turned to one cabinet and gasped in utter delight at their collection of Kirk & Kirk frames. I was in heaven! I tried on most of them. Spoilt for choice, I wanted a pair for every day of the week but these frames are an investment so I could only choose one… Next time!
