Welcome to A J Rawling

Welcome to A J Rawling


All routine optical services have been suspended as a result of NHS and government instructions during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A J Rawling will continue to offer emergency advice and essential eye care to our patients within these restrictions for the foreseeable future.

Although we cannot examine our patients face to face at this time, staff are in the practice from Tuesday to Friday each week during our normal working hours, answering telephone and email enquiries.

If you have broken or lost your glasses or contact lenses and need a replacement pair to function, we will endeavour to get you a replacement.

If you have an urgent or emergency eye care problem  e.g. a possible foreign object in your eye, sudden change in vision, flashes and floaters etc., we will be able to offer you clinical advice and refer you on to another healthcare professional if necessary.

If you need urgent optical assistance outside of the practice normal working hours you should contact your GP or telephone NHS 111.

We wish you all safety and good health during these difficult times.

A J Rawling is an independent opticians established in 1936.

We pride ourselves on offering patients a professional, relaxed environment with an emphasis on caring for the health of your eyes rather than sales.

Our appointment system ensures there is sufficient time to examine your eyes thoroughly, and if you need glasses, our dispensing staff will help you choose without ‘sales pressure’.

Our facilities include a ground floor air-conditioned consulting room.  The waiting room, dispensing area and clinical assessment room are also based on the ground floor enabling easy access for those with mobility issues.

We very much look forward to being of service.  To discuss your eyecare needs please either call 01473 252026 or complete our contact form today.
