At Leightons, we like to make sure your eyes are tested in the most thorough way technology will allow. Our Southampton store offers the very latest OCT tests, which lets us examine parts of the eye normal tests can’t reach. That way we can spot changes in your eye health up to 5 years earlier than traditional test. And the sooner you detect it, the quicker you can take steps to manage it.


At Leightons, we stock all sorts of glasses. Glasses that are chic and sophisticated. Or glasses that are retro and cool. Glasses that are rimless and discreet. Or glasses that are bright and bold. The trick is, finding the right ones for you.

Luckily, our friendly Dispensing Opticians have the perfect knack of helping you find your perfect pair.
