About The Village Optician

Trusted Opticians

The Village Optician is a family run local independent optician. Founded in 2003 by Optometrist brothers Michael and Stephen Peart,  The Village Optician has grown from one practice in Cobblers Hall, Newton Aycliffe to four Opticians practices in Durham and Darlington.

Michael and Stephen attribute their success to being:

Focused on great service and providing excellent quality glasses frames and lenses at competitive prices – rather than sourcing the cheapest.

We also provide a home visiting service, Opticians To You, which covers the whole of County Durham and Tyne and Wear.

Very different to most opticians.

To help look after your eyes all of our standard glasses lenses are reflection free with enhanced UV protection and our elite lenses are also guaranteed against scratches.

Our experienced frame and lens experts will help you choose new glasses that are right for you. We guarantee you honest advice and opinion on your new glasses from all of our staff. Come and see for yourself why The Village Optician has become such a trusted part of each of the communities our practices serve.

"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'"

- JP, Durham

"I have tried the rest now I have found the best (truly)! The patience, attentiveness and caring way the whole team at the Newton Aycliffe branch dealt with my varifocal lens problem was outstanding. It was such a relief to find out my vision problem could be resolved; I would highly recommend this optician to anyone.
Very professional and above all freindly staff - nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Stephen and Michael for going the extra mile - I know my eye sight problem was a challenge! Thank you so very much and long may you continue to do a grand job"

- YB, Newton Aycliffe
