A wealth of local care and experience

Anne Irving Optometrists offers NHS and private eye examinations, spectacles, contact lenses and a full range of optical services and accessories from our practice in Stramongate, Kendal.


 We have been established in Kendal for over 30 years and are a friendly practice with a large loyal patient base, some whom have been coming to see us for all of those 30 years! We pride ourselves in providing patients with a first class service and a warm welcome for all patients new and existing. 


 Your eyes will be tested by Anne Irving who graduated from Manchester University in 1977 and has been an Optician for 40 years, much of that time in Kendal.  


 Anne is helped out by Optometrist Lucy Peart. Lucy has been an Optician for 17 years mainly working in Cumbria and works part-time with us here in Kendal. 

We do both NHS and private eye examinations and each eye test takes about 30 minutes so there is ample time for questions and a full explanation of the results. 


 As well as telling us about your vision, a regular eye test is important as it screens for eye problems like glaucoma and can also reveal vital signs about your general health, such as blood pressure.  



 After your eye test Darren will help guide you through our extensive frame and lens selection. Darren joined us in October 2013 and has been working in Optics for 27 years. He qualified as a Dispensing Optician in 2002 and has a wealth of experience in frame and lens suitability and design. He is also excellent at repairing frames even whilst you wait!


 Our trained and experienced reception staff are only too glad to assist you with any concerns you may have about your eyes or eyecare. The friendly and helpful receptionist girls are Bridget, Eileen and Michelle.
