Here at The Optical Co., we know that choosing the right opticians is incredibly important when it comes to looking after your eyes.
We pride ourselves on being the only , independent optician in Cobham which to us, means being able to not only meet, but surpass your expectations, whether you’re looking for expert eyecare, high quality eyewear, or both!
Why Choose The Optical Co.?
Being the only owner led opticians practice in Cobham, means that every single visit will be completely tailored to your individual needs. How does being owner led make this possible, though?
Our owner and lead optometrist, Sachin, is passionate about providing continuity of care, which is why he chooses to build relationships with every patient himself, rather than having them see different locums or short-term staff. This allows him to provide a highly personalised service and go above and beyond, whatever your visual and lifestyle needs may be.
One of the first and most important aspects of being able to provide a personalised service is making sure your appointment is never rushed, regardless of what it is for.
We love getting to know you, as it helps us to provide a fully comprehensive service that covers all your needs and concerns. This in turn, means you can get the most out of your opticians visit, and walk away feeling satisfied with complete peace of mind.
Providing a fully comprehensive service and delivering peace of mind is about having the right equipment too. So, as a forward-thinking practice, we have chosen to heavily invest in the latest, state of the art hospital grade eyecare equipment and technology.
We are proud to be the only opticians in the area to have exclusive access to the Visioffice X, which is the most advanced dispensing technology currently available, and were also the first Cobham opticians to offer Optomap ultra wide-field retinal imaging.
All of this enables us to offer truly unique services to our local community and surrounding areas that reflect the traditional, caring approach to customer service that we strive to provide. You can read more about the Optomap scan and Visioffice X in our previous blogs, and find out about our other advanced equipment like the 3D OCT scan and automatic phoropter here.
We firmly believe that you shouldn’t have to settle for second best when it comes to your eyewear, so we also like to tailor your experience with us by offering a personalised frame styling consultation with one of our expert dispensing opticians. The result? A pair of glasses or sunglasses that fits your lifestyle, prescription, and facial features perfectly, and that you truly love to wear!
Most of our designer eyewear collections are handmade and from independent brands who have given us exclusivity in Cobham so they cannot be found anywhere else on the high street. We also offer bespoke and luxury frames in precious metals and natural buffalo horn by prestigious brands like Tom Davies, Maybach, DITA and Hoffmann Natural Eyewear.
FAQ with Optometrist and Owner, Sachin Nath
Being an owner-led independent opticians, we felt it was only right that you hear from the owner and principal optometrist – Sachin Nath – on what being truly independent means to him too! He’s answered some of the most frequently asked questions below:
What Makes You Different From Other Local Opticians?
We are the only owner led and family run Opticians in Cobham. I believe this gives us a real advantage in providing superior customer service because we have full control over how the practice is run. From longer testing times to ensure patients are never rushed, to hand picking each and every brand and frame we sell, we are able to offer our patients a unique experience.
I always take the time to get to know my patients and to make sure I am available to speak to them directly if they have any concerns. In fact, many patients pop in to just say hello when they are passing which is great!
Why Do You Offer Frame Styling Consultations?
We offer complimentary frame styling consultations with professional staff to help customers find their perfect frame. I believe the dispensing process is just as important as the eye test because factors like frame fit, comfort, lens type and lens measurements all determine how well a customer is going to get on with their glasses.
Having worked in multiple Opticians before opening The Optical Co. I have seen first-hand how many practices allow inexperienced staff members to help customers choose glasses, resulting in poorly fitting frames and consequently blurry vision.
Do You Offer Bespoke Frames?
Yes. Having my own practice allows me to be involved in the dispensing process as well as testing. I am passionate about frames, and I have personally chosen every brand and frame that we sell.
My interest in design has led me to offer patients bespoke frame options too. Our Tom Davies collection allows patients to partly customise their frames by selecting an off the shelf frame but choosing it in one of 105 acetate and 25 titanium colour options to make them unique.
We can also create fully bespoke glasses by taking precise facial measurements e.g., width of nose to adjust the bridge of the frames or make the arms of the frame longer or shorter to make them fit perfectly.
Our Hoffmann Natural Horn and Maybach collections offer patients luxury material options like genuine natural horn, the finest woods, pure titanium, 18ct. gold in yellow, white, and rose variations and diamonds. The options really are endless.
