Here at our independent practice in the historic market town of Neston, Cheshire, we take pride in looking after your eye care with thorough 30 minute eye consultations and exclusive frames delivered by our expert staff. We never cut corners and always do what’s best for you and your vision.

So how did we get here? Mr Allister created the practice in 1981 and built a great reputation with patients and medical professionals alike. In 1994, he moved to the present premises in the heart of Neston, next to St Mary and St Helen Parish Church. In 2014, I joined the practice after having previously worked with the NHS and a number of practices across Cheshire and the Wirral. I felt at home straight away in Neston and found the patients, staff and Mr Allister a pleasure to work with. In July 2018, I was given the opportunity to become a director in the business, which I was thrilled about. It’s a real privilege to carry on this fantastic practice and have the opportunity to build on the strong foundation Mr Allister has built. My wife Rebecca is also an Optometrist and is the newest member to our team and brings with her a wealth of experience in the Optical sector. She is Parkgate born and bred and over the moon to be back working where she grew up.

We pride ourselves on being truly independent with no link to any high street chain or multiple. Our goal is to create an opticians which continues to build on its thorough and professional examinations, whilst providing access to innovative and exclusive lenses and spectacles.

To ensure we can deliver this it’s important we have a strong team. We have expert staff with over 100 years of optical experience between them and they really care about giving you the best eye care advice they can. We take a proactive approach to ensure our practice is kept up to date with the latest technology and eyewear.

Our exclusive range of spectacles are hand picked by us to provide a full range of styles to suit all face shapes and sizes. Combine this with our team of experts and we will always find a frame that is as individual as you are, even if this means ordering in different size and colours for you to try. Throughout the year we ensure our practictioners are keeping up with educational events to ensure the advice they provide is up to date. On top of this we regularly travel to international trade shows to seek out the newest frames. Head over to our social media pages to find out more about what has been happening recently at Allister and Simpson Opticians.

Protecting your vision is and always will be our number one goal at Allister and Simpson Opticians. We ensure we have sufficient time to investigate your vision thoroughly so we can detect abnormalities before they become a problem. We do not believe in a conveyor belt model, so all parts of your examination will be carried out by one of our resident Optometrists. The continuity of this ensures all parts of the examination are carried out to the highest standards. We also do not regularly employ locum Optometrists, so you will always have the option to see the same Optometrist you saw last time.

As well as providing expert advice in eye health and spectacles we also have have lots of knowledge in contact lens fitting. As spectacles are not needed they can significantly change your appearance. At Allister and Simpson Opticians we even have lenses that can change or enhance the colour of your eyes. Contact lenses have progressed a lot over the last few years enabling many more prescriptions to be corrected. This includes improvements in dry eye management, astigmatism and multifocal correction. So if you have not succeeded with contact lenses in the past or are interested in trying them for the first time please get in touch.

So this is a small snippet about us, give us a call or drop in to talk about you and your vision.

See you soon
