Maximum Comfort

So, we invested in new equipment to make your eye test even more comfortable.


Patients examined in 2022.

It's only a small number, since we spend the right amount of time examining each & every one. 


Diabetic Screenings this year so far


The number of days to wait for our next diabetic retinal screening appointment.

Give us a ring to go on our cancellation list, so you could get screened sooner.


Free patient car parking spaces at the practice front door. Handy!

Jack's Legacy Continues

At Orrell Opticians, great eye tests have been happening here since 1937, when Jack Orrell opened the practice in Ellesmere Port. 


Our patients demand (and receive!) an excellent eye care experience by a meticulous optician using modern technology.


However, that’s just part of what you want; you also want to find your perfect glasses that compliment your look and your style. To get you there, you need an Enhanced Eye Test and a fabulous choice of handpicked eyewear brands from around the world.


The problem is, the majority of eye tests in Cheshire are by the mainstream opticians, so it oftentimes feels rushed. With so many patients booked in, that's the inevitable customer experience we often hear about.   

We don't think a quick eye check is OK, or to feel like you are buying your glasses in a hurry. 

Let's slow things down and do it right at Orrell Opticians.

Let's Talk!

We aim for a response time of < 2 hours, or by 10.00 the next day we are open.

I feel that the service is very thorough.


The equipment is state of the art but the testing is still very personal.


All the staff are really pleasant and friendly and the atmosphere is very relaxed.


The reception/ waiting area is spotless and very attractively decorated and the display of frames most attractive.

I needed to ring up afterwards for a copy of my prescription which should have been given to me while I was there. It was then promptly emailed to me
