"Your eyes are for looking at beautiful things"

Let your eye health journey start at Lunar Optical, your local Independent Optician.


We're an established family-run independent Opticians who've been based on Gloucester Road for the last 10 years and now in Clifton Village too.

We can look after the health and vision of your eyes using modern advanced technology to ensure an accurate and thorough examination and help you find the perfect frame for your lenses, with the best in lens technology from Nikon Optical UK



myopia control

Myopia is ever-increasing and with it an increased risk of sight-threatening conditions, so finding ways to manage this is essential. 

Lunar Optical offers CooperVision MiSight contact lenses or Essilor Stellest lenses to help control and manage further increases in myopia.

Come by the practice and speak to one of our Dispensing Opticians for further information.

contact lenses

Contact Lenses can offer a great addition to your spectacles. Great for sports and socialising or just due a change.

Johnson and Johnson Acuvue contact lenses offer a wide range of wearing options and for most prescriptions.

eye examination

Lunar Optical has highly skilled and friendly Optometrists who will thoroughly check the health of your eyes as well as your vision. Your eyes are for looking at beautiful things, so we will look after them for you.

We feel that all patients deserve excellent eye care and advice from our Optometrists. To assist us in achieving this we now conduct an enhanced eye examination by including the use of

optical coherence tomography (OCT).

By doing so we can ensure a wider aspect of the back of your eyes will be assessed to help ensure your eyes are totally looked after. If we do detect anything with this scan we can monitor and refer much earlier than traditional methods of examination.
