Scarborough's favourite independent family optician

If you would like professional eyecare, a huge range of stylish glasses frames to choose from (budget to designer) from a friendly and attentive team .. Local Eyes is Scarborough's favourite independent family optician.

We take the time to check your eye health thoroughly and to help you choose any glasses you need.

It's not just about making it enjoyable to choose glasses, we're here to help you choose frames that will suit you and say the right things about you while taking account of the lenses you need and your work, hobbies and lifestyle. Glasses are as individual as you are, and we make sure you have everything you need to take on the world (if that's your thing).

We've been providing eyecare in Scarborough for over eighty years (we were formerly Horn & Pierce, established in 1935).

Pop in and say hello, you're very welcome to browse. How about taking a look at our designer sunglasses while you're here.
