Reassuring experience

HBD has been looking after the eyes of thousands of people in London since 1903. We are here because people can literally ‘see the difference’.

Superb Designer Frame Collections

Come in-store, and you’ll see the largest selection of frames in London starting from £70 all the way up to our exclusive diamond collection!

Passionate Expert Team

Our staff of over 37 years experience are on hand to help you with all of your eye-care needs. We do not do the ‘hard sell’ so often found in high street opticians these days.

Always Independent

When it comes to your eyes, you should always be advised on what is best, NOT on what the head of the company wants you to buy! As independent practitioners, unlike the main chain-store opticians, we are not tied to any supplier. Hence, we will always offer our patients the right frame, lenses or other products – specifically for their individual needs and requirements.

Expert Craftsmanship

Making beautiful glasses is an art perfected by few. At Hodd Barnes Dickins, we pay extreme attention to detail when it comes to how your glasses and sunglasses look. Only the best materials are used to make our patient’s glasses ensuring a superb finish every time.

Contact Lenses in Stock

We have a wide range of daily disposable contact lenses that we keep in stock at all times. We have an established contact lens clinic and will endeavour to find the right lens for you!


Lost your glasses or contact lenses and need them in a hurry? Do not worry we have a lab on site where we can make you a pair of spectacles on the same day and even courier them over to you if you can not come back into store.

Open from 08.45 onwards

We’re open from 08.45 however someone is normally here from 08.30 so before you go to work you can pop in if you require any assistance.
