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.


Patients examined so far in 2021. That's a lot of happy eyes!


Weeks wait for NHS cataract surgery via our referral pathways. Get your eyesight restored, faster. 


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


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


Eyeballs examined & counting!

[Yes, that is an odd number since not everyone has two eyes!]

Have a question for us? 

I’m anxious about eye tests at the best of times, and recently panicked as I struggled to see.

I found everyone in Orrell Opticians to be warm and friendly.

My eye test with Ashley was very thorough, and he explained everything.

All in all, I had an amazing experience!  

I went fearing what might be found, to leaving feeling calm despite needing a cataract operation!

People recommend the well-known mainstream opticians, but I wanted to go somewhere less like a conveyor belt. I don't like to feel rushed!  

I found Orrell Opticians to be very caring and wanted to genuinely help me.  

From the moment I sat down with Ashley, he allowed me time to talk and was very patient throughout the test. The test was very comprehensive, with lots of new equipment.  

I was confident & reassured with the findings of my test.

I was in constant pain and very unhappy due to ingrowing eyelashes. The hospital could not see me due to lockdown, so I went to Orrell Opticians. 


The people at Orrell Opticians were very professional and treated me with a protective contact lens to stop my eye pain.


I was overjoyed to find instant relief after months of pain. I felt very reassured by the attention I received from Christine & Liz. I was able to watch TV & read easily again and get on with life with one less worry. 


Thanks from the bottom of my heart!
