Healthy eyes.


We believe that checking eye health is the most important factor in an eye test and is best maintained by regular check-ups with your Optometrist. Any small changes can be monitored, ensuring early detection of any age-related conditions or eye diseases and referred for treatment if needed. For this reason we allow 20-40 minutes per appointment, depending on age.

Did you know that eye examinations can also pick up signs of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease and diabetes?

New spectacles.

As well as checking the health of your eyes, the Optometrist will make an assessment of your visual needs and provide you with an up to date prescription if spectacles are required. We aim to accommodate all budgets and ensure we have a variety of choices available. If you need a budget-friendly pair of spectacles, we offer a selection of ‘free’ frames when purchasing spectacle lenses. Alternatively, if fashion, great design, and new technology are important to you, we have many designer brands, advanced lenses, and coatings for you to choose from. With help from our Dispensing Optician and Optical advisors, we will help you get the best spectacles or contact lenses for your budget and lifestyle.

We aim to cater for all.

Thompsons Opticians has been established (in Liskeard) for over 50 years and welcomes new private and NHS patients wishing to join one of our practices.

We believe that a better level of care and greater customer satisfaction can be provided by continuity, we and our loyal staff are proud to be your local, friendly opticians and enjoy looking after you and your family.
