Keep your eyes healthy and in vogue with a visit to Alexander Miller Opticians in Falmouth.
Established more than a decade ago as Falmouth’s only independent optician, Alexander Miller always guarantees that all-important personal touch.
Owners Mark and Andrew regularly attend trade fairs in London, Paris and Milan, allowing them to obtain an oversight of what’s happening in the optical market. This also gives them direct access to a range of companies whose products are often not otherwise seen in Cornwall!
“You can choose with the environment in mind, thanks to the ECO brand – frames made from recycled material.”
Indeed, a large proportion of existing Alexander Miller customers come back time and time again because they appreciate the eclectic and ever-evolving selection of spectacles that are always available, often finding quite a selection of frames that suit them – several of which they would never before have considered.
Mark Alexander, co-founder of the practice, tells us: “As independent opticians we are not restricted to what products we can offer. This is particularly useful when recommending lenses as we can offer the most appropriate solution for you, from whichever manufacturer that might be. We do, however, have a strong affiliation with Nikon, with whom we’ve been doing business since day one.”
All this leads to the practice’s ethos: that whilst ocular health is crucial and technical specifications important, they needn’t come at the expense of design. Some of the exciting brands you’ll find available are Tom Ford, Tom Davies, ic!berlin, MODO and WOOW. You can choose with the environment in mind, thanks to the ECO brand – frames made from recycled material. ECO start at a complete price single vision of £150 and they’ll plant a tree for every frame sold!
So, if it’s about time you checked on your eyesight, what better place to do it than here? Sit down to enjoy a fresh coffee as you prepare for your appointment by enjoying the beautiful views of the river Fal. A comprehensive 30-minute eye examination awaits you followed by an opportunity to discuss your visual needs. Throughout your visit you’ll be given time to make the whole journey an enjoyable one. There really is no excuse not to look after your eyes!
