About Vernon Walker Opticians

Established over fifty years, Vernon Walker Opticians is an independent family business run by Philip and Donna Walker. In 1960 Vernon Walker opened the first practice and by providing high levels of personal service and attention the business expanded to four practices. For many years the business was run as a father and son partnership until 2000 when Philip’s wife Donna joined the partnership and Vernon retired.

Many patients have been visiting the practice for over fifty years and so we are privileged to attend to three generations of many families. Our aim is to provide friendly personal service and high standards of eyecare.

Your eyes will be examined by a qualified optical practitioner while your glasses will be dispensed by fully trained dispensing staff. We guarantee you will receive personal attention and we will happily spend time answering any questions you may have regarding your eyes.
