I’m Deepak, the owner and Optician here at Station Road Opticians.
When growing up in the 80’s, there was a stigma around wearing spectacles. I knew I needed them to see clearly, but was not too fond of wearing glasses, they just weren’t cool.
This all changed with one person: Harry Potter.
If you have a child in your family, you will be certain to go though the stage of ‘I want glasses!’
However, the styles of glasses available in most UK opticians in the noughties still wasn’t great. This all changed with a visit to an eyewear show in Paris. Wow, what an eye opener that was, the styles and shapes of glasses available was vast to say the least.
I still remember my first pair of ‘cool glasses’. The barista at the local coffee shop was in awe (she must have just watched Harry Potter). Imagine having no one ever comment on your brand-new glasses! So, I decided, when I grow up I’ll sell some cool glasses.
If you hate glasses or have never been able to find the perfect pair, Station Road Opticians is the place for you. We travel the world to bring you unusual, niche eyewear that will fit you perfectly and make you feel fantastic. We guarantee you’ll enjoy hearing all those comments and compliments!
We love, breathe and source glasses like it’s a hobby.
