O’Brien’s Opticians – purveyors of luxury eyewear since 1979

O’Brien’s Opticians has been located on Wrawby Street in Brigg for over 40 years. A nationally recognised and acclaimed practice being runner-up in the UK Optician awards 2019.

All eye examinations are performed by Optometrist, Sheeraz Janjua who was awarded the degree of Doctor of Optometry (DipSv) from Aston University for his research in Dry eye syndrome.

He was runner-up in the 2018 Optician awards for UK Optometrist of the Year. Supported by longstanding staff new services have been introduced including dry eye and blepharitis appointments and treatment plans.

Doctor Janjua takes great pride in what he calls precision calculation of spectacle prescriptions – using techniques honed over twenty years in optometry.

Emphasis is placed on personal service, correctly fitted original and international frames and accurately dispensed ophthalmic lenses by exceptional manufacturers such as Carl Zeiss, Nikon, Seiko, Rodenstock, Essilor, Kodak, Hoya and many other superior independent lens suppliers including one that makes the thinnest lens in the world using 1.76 index.

Dr Janjua Launches Specialist Lenses for Macular Degeneration (AMD)

The practice dispenses specialist lens types, tints and coatings which can help people with various daily tasks such as driving (day driving and night driving), poor vision in low light level and VDU work.

In 2016 Dr Janjua introduced specialist lenses from the USA for people with vision loss related to Glaucoma, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Diabetic Retinopathy and macular degeneration (AMD).

These special – prismatic lenses can change the direction of light to alternative healthier parts of the retina. Combined with a special filter to improve contrast – they have been a huge success.  The practice can now also supply revolutionary lenses that use a built in mesh in the lens to improve the vision for those who struggle to see very well – especially at night.

Now official stockists of LINDBERG – the best eyewear in the world

The Danish royal family, politicians, business tycoons, and high-profile celebrities are your typical LINDBERG customers. With 95+ international design awards including the prestigious Silmo Gold award, this multi award-winning Danish company is undoubtedly the best of the best in the world. Their craftsmanship is unmatched by any other existing brands today and now available in Brigg.
