The Eye Place, Belsize Park, London

We have traced our practice heritage at 153 Haverstock Hill to it's origin in the 1950's with a Mr Botten, a gentleman Optician, who started the business when the building was erected. In 1985 it passed through to Andreas Christodolou, another independent optician until his retirement in 2010 when Alex Kemp took over. With a focus on amazing design which starts at the shop door we have some of North London's most beautiful eyewear.

Chose this place because the reviews were good and it lived up to them. I have been wearing glasses for 34 years and have never experienced such good or attentive service. Yes it is a bit more expensive than most places but you don't need to change specs very often, so it's worth investing a bit for something so important, especially if you prescription is a little bit more complicated. And you really do get what you pay for. In many opticians you feel they are just trying to get as many people through the door and make as much money as possible without providing dedicated care and service, or that they are just too busy to focus, even if they do care: not the eye place. I brought my own frames which I bought online and they advised they were the best choice for my needs. I recommend without any reservations.

Fantastic service from Justin and the team. I was very happy the thoroughness of the eye health check and love my new glasses. Would definitely recommend!

There’s a few good reviews here already, and I’ll just add that this place is expensive but it’s absolutely worth every single penny, don’t go anywhere else for glasses or contacts, and if you found it while searching but don’t live nearby you would do well to make a journey here to get the best service. I was shocked, amazing opticians with state-of-the-art equipment and down to earth manner. My spec lenses are incredible. Thanks!

I went for a eye-test and I must say that, from the reception to the eye expert, the service was outstandingly excellent. Very warm, kind and friendly and keeping professionalism. They explain everything very well and great great consideration during these COVID times, keeping distance whenever possible, wearing masks and wiping all the machines in front of you to make you feel safe. If I moved out from the zone, I’d still try to come here for my checks.
