Here at ‘The Spectacle Shop’ we have been providing an essential service to the city of Hull, and the local community, for over twenty years. In that time we have built up a strong clientele, with customers returning year after year, providing each new generation with the personalised advice and reassurances it needs. We pride ourselves on our friendly 1 to 1 customer sales and dispensing service, and with our wide range of spectacles (including sportswear), and contact lenses we are sure we have something to suit the requirements of you and your family at a price you can afford.

Glasses and designer frames

At The Spectacle Shop we offer a full range of adult designer, and sports glasses, as well as something for the children… There is choice and value for everyone in our fantastic range of glasses for all the family with and without frames. Included in our wide range of glasses and designer frames are brands such as Playboy, Bench, Hooch, and Calvin Klein. If you are active and play sports then we have spectacles for cycling, snooker, swimming, skiing, football, shooting, archery, and diving. If you are unsure please come in and ask us, we should be able to help you whatever your requirements. With our rimless frames you can choose your own lens shape, so if you’re not happy with the lenses we show you just select the shape you do like and we will make them for you.

Contact Lenses

With contact lenses comes freedom. Whether it is playing sport, playing with your kids, or a simple trip to the shops, with contact lenses you will always have one less thing to worry about. Contact lenses give you the freedom to be more active and are an excellent alternative to glasses (+ in the summer you won’t have to buy an extra pair of prescription sunglasses). Contact lenses will change how you see, and how people see you.

At The Spectacle Shop we are here to help make wearing contact lenses simple and easy at all times. If you are unsure about contact-lenses why not pop in whilst you are passing and we will do our best to answer any questions you may have. We stock all the major brands, and we will always advise you on the best contact lens for your own individual needs. Ring us now on (01482) 585083 if you have any questions, or to book a consultation and get a free contact lens trial.

Staying healthy and looking good

An eye examination, as well as detecting injury, disease, abnormalities or defects to your vision also allows us to catch the early signs or symptoms of general ill-health such as diabetes, because of this it is important to have regular eye-checks performed by an experienced and professional optometrist, and of course, if any signs of illness are detected the results will always be dealt with in the strictest of confidence.

From your initial eye-test all the way through to the dispensing of your first pair of glasses or contact lenses, we believe it is our duty to keep you fully informed about the choices available to you, enabling you to make the right decision for your needs and lifestyle.

As part of our service we also offer a (free) home-delivery option for patients with mobility difficulties

Steve Wright

Steve Wright has been in optics for over 45 years since qualifying as a frame-maker in 1967 – He started out making both mass produced and bespoke, hand-crafted acetate (plastic) frames for various local manufacturing opticians before venturing into lens glazing and dispensing, and becoming the manager at two highly respected independent local opticians. It was a natural progression for Steve to open his own opticians and so, in 1991, he established The Spectacle Shop. These days Steve no longer makes frames, preferring to concentrate all his efforts on giving the best 1 to 1 customer sales and dispensing service he can, but when needed, Steve is still able to do things with frames that other opticians no longer do, making sure that you get the glasses you want.
