At Leightons, we believe in delivering clinical excellence. We are always investing in new ways to make sure that our customers get the most thorough eye examination possible. That is why we offer OCT scans in every store and we are trialling Optomap scans in a select few. So you will have the most clinically advanced technology at your fingertips.

What’s more, as a much-loved independent optician, we source the most advanced equipment from the world’s most innovative eye companies, so our customers can live life to the full. As a Dispensing Optician, you’ll have all the best brands at your fingertips as well as the more exclusive, hand-crafted, boutique labels you won’t see on every high street.

Listen up – hearing care like no other

Our experienced audiologists use the latest technology to analyse our customers' hearing and accurately assess their needs.

As a member of our hearing care team, you will take time to learn about their lifestyle, needs and wishes, which will help you to advise about potential improvements and supporting products for them to consider.
