WELCOME TO SARAH FARRAR OPTICIANS

We are a friendly, family run opticians practice who take pride in our personalised services to ensure that your visit with us is as relaxed and enjoyable as possible. We provide optical services to the Wilsden, Harden, Cullingworth, Bingley, Keighley, Haworth and general Bradford areas (but, we won’t turn you away if you travel from further afield). If you require any advice, assistance or just want to find out more about our services please do not hesitate to contact us.

RELAXED AND FRIENDLY APPROACH

We want your visit to the practice to be as welcoming and relaxing as possible. Our staff have over 50 years experience between them in the optical services sector and we strive to provide an environment that caters for all ages.

LARGE SELECTION OF FRAMES

Being independent means that we can bring you the best choice in frames and designer glasses. We are authorised dealers for the Ray-Ban and Oakley brands. Alongside these we offer designs from William Morris London, Wolf Eyewear, Ana Hickman from Portugal, Johann Von Goisern (handmade in Austria), Vulkan from Germany, Retro and many others.

EXTENSIVE EYE EXAMINATIONS

We provide both NHS and private sight tests performed by the owner and optometrist Sarah Farrar (Mc Optom). In-depth eye examination of up to 45 minutes including digital fundus photography as appropriate. Full contact lens fitting and aftercare service provided.

COMMON QUESTIONS

A regular eye examination is a vital health check for your eyes. It can pick up early signs of eye conditions before you become aware of any symptoms – many of which can be treated if found early enough.
An NHS funded free examination is available for many people. To see if you are eligible please see our eye examinations page. Otherwise, we charge a fee of £35 for an extensive sight test by our experienced owner/optometrist Sarah Farrar (Mc Optom).
There are many people who love wearing glasses (and let’s face it, there are some wonderful designs around to choose from). However not everyone likes the idea. We will aim to change your viewpoint with our enthusiastic advice regarding frame and lens choices. Alternatively, you may want to consider contact lenses.
We offer a full range of sunglasses and sports frames. You can either view them in the practice or visit our online store (being launched soon) where you will find popular brands such as Ray-Ban, Oakley and Porsche Design as well as other fashionable styles. We are happy to answer any question you may have and also offer specialist advice to make sure you have all the required information before you make your purchase.
Children of all ages are very welcome here and Sarah has extensive experience having previously worked in the children’s eye clinic at Airedale General Hospital for over 10 years. All children are eligible for a NHS funded eye examination and also get a voucher towards the cost of their glasses and lenses if required.
The cost of your glasses will vary and there are a variety of reasons why the cost of frames and lenses differs so much (material, brand name, warranty offered etc.). We also have to consider and advise you on the best lens and frame choice for your prescription. Our extensive choice of eyewear provides a full range of frames with price points to suit all budgets.

Part of being an independent optician is looking to build up the ongoing relationship with our patients and offering them the best eye care around. When you see the same optician year in year out they get to know you and your eye health in a detailed way, and therefore can recommend the best treatment for you. You are welcome to pop in anytime or call us to discuss any concerns you may have. If your glasses need adjusting once you have been wearing them for a little while just call in, no need to make an appointment.

MEET THE TEAM

Being a small family run business means that we need dedicated, conscientious and professional team members. All our staff are extremely friendly and have your best interests at heart (as well as being super nice!).
