Why Pay More for Eyecare?

Affordable Eyecare in Newcastle

At The BIG Optician we believe that quality glasses should be affordable by everyone.  That is why we go that extra mile to ensure that we have an extensive range of frames and lenses to suit everyones taste and budget. Our complete spectacles start from only £49 inclusive of single vision lenses.  We have over 1000 frames on display from cool, funky designers to the more classical, contemporary styles. Visit our mens, womens and childrens frames sections to see which brands we stock!

We are independent spectacle lens specialists.  For those people seeking the very best lenses we offer state of the art digital lens technology from the world's leading lens suppliers: Seiko, Essilor, Varilux, Zeiss, Pentax and Hoya. Our available lens options include Transitions, Polarised, Anti fatigue and polycarbonate lenses. Our optical lens experts are always on hand to listen to your individual needs, and provide advice on the best lens for your lifestyle and your budget.

We also sell prescription eye wear specifically for sports such as football, cricket, fishing, prescription swimming goggles and sports wrap lenses.  

We are also happy to put new lenses into your own frame.  We also carry out spectacle repairs to all types of glasses and frames. Please call the practices for details.

Although we provide fully comprehensive eye tests at both of our practices, we recognise that some people already have their optical prescription but are looking for better value and choice when they purchase their new glasses.  We know that we can provide you with great value and choice, so we are delighted to accept all other opticians prescriptions.  We fully guarantee the frames and lenses in all of the spectacles that we dispense, giving you maximum peace of mind. 

Designer Sunglasses at unbeatable prices and no more wonky shades!

CHANEL, TIFFANY & CO, MAUI JIM, FACE A FACE, BOOTH & BRUCE...just some of the designers that are stocked EXCLUSIVELY* by The BIG Optician.  We regularly check the department store prices to ensure that we offer you better value for money (we retail at less than RRP) and we offer a better service too!

We scour the fashion press and glossy mags to ensure we know what's current and what the rich and famous are wearing to shade their eyes and make maximum style impact. We ensure our selection of glasses and sunglasses is cool, fresh and funky.

We custom-fit all our sunglasses so even if you are going to be wearing yours just for fashion and UV protection we will ensure they are carefully adjusted to fit you perfectly so you feel as cool as you look.

We are able to glaze most of our designer sunglasses with most optical prescriptions.  We always have optical lens experts on hand to give you the best advice regarding your prescription and lens types available to you. So The BIG Optician is a great place to come for all your prescription eyewear needs.
