The Village Optician has four Opticians practices in County Durham and Darlington. You will find us in local community shops rather than town or city centres. All of our Opticians in County Durham and Darlington have free parking right outside. This makes it much easier to call in to have a look at our frames, have an eye test, collect your glasses or have your glasses adjusted.

"I love my new glasses - thank you. I am especially impressed with the new Varilux lens that you recommended - as you know I was a bit sceptical at first as I thought all Opticians sold the same quality lenses'"
