Independent Opticians in Harborne

Located on Harborne High Street, we’re proudly independent and even more proud of our team’s ability to find frames that will make you beam. We also know how to make a seriously good cuppa’ — so please do stop by if you’re in the area.

With lead optometrist, Matt Rose, at the helm, we’ve been bringing fresh frames and expert eyecare to the West Midlands since 2008. Following roles at practices both big and small, as well as a stint working in New Zealand, Matt came home to open Brittain’s.

Drawing on the many different ways of working he experienced, Matt has created an opticians which combines innovative technology, top brands and a seriously approachable team.

Brittain’s is constantly evolving, with the latest thinking in eyecare informing your examinations, plus hard-to-get, hand-picked frames arriving regularly from our trips to international trade shows each year.

So come and say hi, or contact us to arrange a consultation. We’d love to meet you!
