Welcome to Clapham Optical, a third-generation, independent optician in Southampton since 1970.
Since the very beginning, my grandfather had a simple mission - to deliver a personal, professional and high value service, centred around honest advice that is in the best interests of our clients.
50 years later and this is still at the core of everything we do.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Many people don’t know what eyewear really suits them, often choosing glasses that are functional, but unloved. Our unique styling consultation enables us to get to know you, to understand your personality and identify what suits your facial features and colouring. We then assemble a small selection of eyewear that will suit your individuality, while being mindful of your prescription requirements.Read more

To truly look after your eyes, your optometrist needs to get a really good look at them, so we continually invest in state-of-the-art technology to allow for a more in-depth view of the eye and its important structures.Read more
