Coronavirus update 14th April 2020

Following Government instructions we are operating at very reduced levels, providing essential eyecare only.

We are still here for you, mainly working remotely to help you as much as we can.

Please email us at or phone us on 0191 284 7361 if you have any difficulties that you would like to discuss.  Emergency advice is also available from the RVI Eye Casualty Department on 0191 233 6161.

If you have lost or broken your glasses or need new contact lenses we should be able to help, though normally wont be able to do so face to face. 

Thank you and please stay home and stay safe!

1. Patient care

Out of many opticians in Newcastle and thousands of opticians across the UK we have been awarded the prestigious Association of Optometrists' award "Optical Team of the Year 2018".  Here is a comment from one of the judges,

"Communicating each patient's eye care needs on a personal level, tailored to each individual, sets our AOP Awards winners apart."

2. Spectacle frames

Every frame we choose to stock is done so for a reason.  There is a lot of competition to get frames into stock at Keyes Eyecare so we can be fussy about what we stock and hand pick frames with people like you in mind.  If we don't stock a particular frame range or model there's a reason, so feel free to ask.

3. Spectacle lenses

Our team have over 130 years of combined experience helping people like you.  This means that we can make your choice of lenses, as well as frames, informative, enjoyable and sraightforward.  Whatever your own priorities, for example a particular look, extra help for a hobby or work, or super comfortable lightweight glasses, we can cater for these in your final choice of glasses.

Is Keyes Eyecare the right Opticians for me?

One of the main reasons that Keyes Eyecare opticians was set up was to allow plenty of time with every patient, to get to know every one as an individual.  Neither you as a patient, nor we as professional experts, want to feel rushed or part of a conveyor belt production system.  Your eyesight is just too important for that.

The practice has grown by personal recommendation so have a look at our reviews and testimonials - you will see we specialise in happy, highly satisfied patients.  Over 4000 patients have chosen us from all the opticians in Newcastle, with many travelling a distance to see us.  We hope you will want to join them in choosing us. 

What should I do next?
