About Us | Independent Opticians In Nottingham | Loxley Opticians

About Nottingham's Newest Independent Opticians

Find The Prefect 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, 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 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 is always relaxed and fun.

Book your visit online or call today. 


The Loxley way

As a family run independent opticians we are personable and flexible, we understand your needs are unique. We are always at the forefront of eye health to ensure you and your family receive the best health care. To see our specialists, visit our store in Nottingham’s City Centre on Friar Lane. 


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 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 eyewear. 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 experts, we will recommend the perfect lenses to suit your lifestyle.
