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 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!


Eyeballs examined & counting!

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

Staff were friendly and the optician was very informative and explained each procedure. I did not feel as though I was on a 'conveyor belt' as it was all calm and relaxed.
