Bottomley Opticians are the only third generation family run independent opticians in Lindley, Huddersfield passionate about eyewear, eye exams, eye care and now including OCT (only available in Halifax). Delivering quality since 1948.
Bottomley Opticians first opened in Halifax in 1948, when optometrist and original owner Randolph Bottomley set up his own independent optical practice. Since that time, we have remained a truly family-owned and run business. Randolph’s son John joined him to work in the practice, eventually taking the business over upon his father’s retirement. John continued Bottomley Opticians’ success story, taking the practice from strength to strength and opening our second branch in Lindley, Huddersfield in 1990.
Having worked in the optics industry for various companies, Jim has been able to bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to Bottomleys. Jim’s experience, alongside the cutting edge facilities at Bottomleys enable us to give you high quality, premium eye care.
Jim took over the practice from his father when John chose to relocate to the island of Tiree on Scotland’s West Coast – where he has since set up another opticians practice in the Bottomley group!
Bottomley Opticians is proud to be the only third generation family practice offering clinical excellence including OCT in our Halifax branch. We also take pleasure in being a valued part of the local community. That’s why, when we needed to move to bigger premises several years ago, it felt so fitting that we relocated to the building that once housed Halifax’s town hall.
As Managing Director of the business, Jim is committed to continuing the dedication to high quality care and personal service his father and grandfather established. He also works in practice dispensing glasses and giving customers the premium services that Bottomley Opticians love to provide.
You’ll find very quickly that we’re not like other opticians practices – we have more musicians working for us than most for a start, with some of our staff even of semi-professional standard! What matters to you is that from the moment you walk through our doors you are served by experienced professionals who are enthusiastic and genuine in their desire to care for you and your eyes.
I have used Bottomley’s for many years now and have always been very satisfied. I have spent quite a bit of time in there recently choosing my new frames , helped by Nick who has been very helpful, professional and patient. I would recommend them whole heartedly.
