Wivenhoe Eyecare & Contact Lens Centre Ltd is a family owned and run by Jane Lee (FBDO CL), with her husband Stuart Lee, and their son Samuel Lee (FBDO). The practice was founded in July 2004 and is situated at 1 Belle Vue Road, Wivenhoe, Colchester, Essex, CO7 9LE (formerly at 10 Brook Street). It has been designed with both a modern yet friendly and open feel.

Since moving to Belle Vue Road in August 2007 our Patient base has rapidly expanded and we have many patients coming to us from Wivenhoe and the surrounding villages including Elmstead Market, Alresford, Frating, Great Bentley, Brightlingsea, Thorrington, and many other locations around the Colchester area. Our patients appreciate the easy access and on-site parking which most Opticians Practices do not provide.

We pride ourselves on offering a friendly and professional service. We are happy to take the time with our customers when choosing the right eyewear for them.

Lower overheads also mean competitive prices as many of our existing patients have pleasantly found when comparing what they previously paid for spectacles. Why not gives us a try - you've nothing to lose and could save a sizeable sum.

The spectacle range consists of around 800 spectacle frames & sunglasses in stock at any one time. Please have a look at the 'Frames' area of this web site for an idea of the different types stocked. These range from 35 to the more expensive 'designer' ranges from 68.  We will also talk you through the most appropriate lenses for your needs. Being an independent practice we can select from the full range of manufacturers. We firmly believe that you get what you pay for and in our experience quality spectacle frames and lenses do tend to last longer than 'budget' ranges. Jane and her team also like to take the time to help you find the style of frame that suits you the best and ensure a perfect fitment.

We have our own glazing lab on-site to speed up the completion of most prescription spectacles & sunglasses. We have even been known to provide new spectacles within 15 minutes of choosing a frame!

A touch screen digital imaging system is also available to help patients see themselves in different spectacle designs. Why not have your photo taken with a range of different frames and then put your 'old' specs back on to view the options. You get a much better idea than just putting on the frames and looking in the mirror close-up!

Jane is ably assisted in the practice by her husband, Stuart, their son Samuel who is also a fully qualified Dispensing Optician, and local member of staff, Jo.

Regular Eye Appointments available.

We are always pleased to welcome new Patients.

Thorough Eye Examinations are carried out by our experienced and fully qualified optometrists.

 We look forward to helping you.

Wivenhoe Eyecare is an independent practice, and family run, providing personal and professional eye-care services. Why struggle getting into town with it's traffic and parking problems when you have a local 'Opticians' that is easy to get to and has it's own parking right outside.

Please Note: Wivenhoe Eyecare do not 'sell' frames or contact lenses online as we feel it is not possible to provide a professional dispensing service over the internet! The vast majority of frames sold online may appear to cost you less but this does not include a dispensing/fitting fee as that service cannot be provided online. If you buy online how do you know they will suit you or fit you. Who do you go back to for proper fitting & adjustments and will they charge? We all know how annoying it can be when your spectacles don't fit you properly. Many of our patients come in for free regular adjustments.
