Independent Opticians in Harborne

Our complete range of services includes everything from full eye examinations, to contact lense consultations and bespoke framing solutions, with everything from hand-made specs to top European brands.

Our independent and partner-owned status means that we have a very consistent optometrist and dispensing staff. In fact between us we have over 80 years of experience!


We spend a lot of time searching out the best that Europe’s frame designers have to offer. From the iconic Rayban, to the multi-award-winning Lindberg, to celebrity favourites like MYKITA, we have the ideal frames waiting for you. Our highly trained and experienced team consider many factors, like your job, your lifestyle and your face shape. You’ll wear your frames more than anything else in your wardrobe and we are determined to make sure you feel great in them.


At Brittain's, we love sunglasses. We employ the best technology out there combined with great frames to provide the best in prescription and non-prescription solutions. So if it's the glare reducing Maui Jim to the fashion favorites Raybans you're after, we have it covered. If you have a high prescription and love to ski, then we have that covered too, our Snow goggles can be made with prescription inserts, to cater for almost any prescription.

Contact lenses

Contact lenses have changed so much over the past decade, with improvements in comfort and vision meaning we can correct 99% of prescriptions helping you see all distances. Our optometrists will offer you the ideal pathway to comfortable, clear and healthy vision.

Children's eye health

Our friendly approach also makes us ideally suited for children's and young peoples' check-ups. Whether it's a first examination, or there's a change in your child's vision to consider, we've got the latest technology to back up our ace selection of frames.

"I value the relationship we have with everyone at Brittain Opticians. I trust them in all aspects of my eye care, from eye test and prescription, frame selection and fitting through to continued help and aftercare."
