About Nottingham's Newest Independent Opticians

Find The Perfect Eyewear

We’re easy to get to in the heart of Nottingham’s City Centre, just off the Old Market Square on Friar Lane. You are the focus from the moment you arrive at our optician’s store, expect personalised one-to-one service where your optical stylist will aid you to find the perfect eyewear. You’ll have the largest selection of eye-catching (we couldn’t help ourselves!) independent eyewear in Nottingham to choose from.

You’ll always find Indy, our resident optometrist and director, to hand. We’re a family business, so if he’s ever away the reins are passed to his sister or brother, ensuring the service and care you receive never falters. Professionally, Indy and his sister are both qualified optometrists.

Our foundations are based on forming long term relationships

Your face is the first thing people see when they meet you, and it’s what they remember you by. So your eyewear plays a big part, be it glasses, sunglasses or contact lenses. We love helping you project the image you want to the outside world … and have fun while doing so.

We are proud optical geeks and we understand the lenses are equally as important as the eyewear. As independent opticians, we will partner your eyewear with lenses that will give you the best vision. We fit and supply lenses from Carl Zeiss, BBGR, Essilor (Varilux), Nikon, Hoya, Seiko and Tokai.

We know a visit to traditional opticians can be overwhelming, a visit to Loxley opticians is always relaxed and fun.

Book your visit online or call today.

A truly fantastic experience. If you've ever felt underwhelmed when visiting one those well known high street opticians this is for you. Indy and team clearly take great pride in what they do and the service is second to none. From the detailed eye exam to picking the frames there is real attention to detail. Can't recommend them highly enough.

What a fantastic experience from Loxley Opticians, Nottingham. I am super picky, and don't like to be pushed into making decisions. Indy was so patient, knowledgable and really shared my vision throughout. Nothing was too much hassle. The whole service was incredibly professional. I am chuffed with my new sunglasses, and will most definitely be back.

Exceptional eyewear curation and customer service! After visiting nine opticians in one day, I finally found my perfect pair of glasses at Loxley's. The atmosphere is less like an optician's and more like a sanctuary for eyewear enthusiasts, with an exceptional array of frames to choose from! Indy and Imogen's personal touch and expertise helped me unearth frames that were bold enough to mirror my style. Their commitment and eyewear curation knowledge, made finding the ideal pair an act of pure dedication and an ode to the lost art of customer service. In short, 10 outta 10, I will definitely come again! Thank you so much, Dan.

I have loved the personal service. The whole team their feel connected and interested in the customer. From the calls to book, the eye test, the frame selection, to the final frame fitting and even the adhoc times I pop in to have a tweak made the team are always friendly and helpful. I recommend Loxley if you want to feel like a human in the glasses purchase process :-)

I had my eye test today, I was not quite sure I would be on time for the appointment and I've called yesterday and explained that I may be slightly late and the lovely lady on the phone was so accommodating and lovely. Indy was fantastic, he has taken the time to explain the different results. I've been wearing glasses for 30 years and this is the most informative eye test I've ever had. Highly recommended.

The Loxley Promise

Eye Test

We are focused on providing total eye care for you and your family. Our eye examinations (Eye Tests) are 45 minutes, rather than the typical 20-30 minutes you find on the high street, followed by your very own personalised eyewear styling. All our Eye Tests are carried out at our Nottingham City Centre Opticians, on Friar Lane.

Glasses & Sunglasses

We are fashion orientated, with a fine eye for detail and quality. We pride ourselves in supporting independent eyewear, giving you a choice of unique glasses and sunglasses to choose from. Indy and his siblings travel around the world meeting inspirational independent eyewear designers, who share the same values as Loxley.

We also have a range of accessories like Glasses chains, Sunglasses clips, Cases, Glasses cleaning cloths & sprays, replacement screws & nose pads.


When it comes to lenses we work with industry leaders, offering an array of lens manufacturers (like Carl Zeiss, BBGR and Essilor). With our understanding of your needs and with the guidance of our expert opticians, we will recommend the perfect lenses to suit your lifestyle.
