Our owners have been friends since they were at primary school together
The relationship at the centre of The Eye Studio actually goes back a lot further than the practice itself. Business partners Nick Singfield and Andrew Harman first met at primary school when they were five years old and have been firm friends ever since. They have shared many happy memories together growing up, and built on their childhood friendship when they decided to open The Eye Studio together.
After starting out as a trainee dispensing optician in 1985, Nick became fully qualified in 1988. He managed several West End opticians branches, and due to his unrivalled expertise was often recruited as a ‘fixer’ to help turn around struggling practices. Nick’s experience being his own boss and delivering excellent service tailored to his customers is what fuelled his desire to open and run his own independent practice.
Nick soon combined his wealth of experience in eye care with Andrew’s extensive business acumen. The pair opened The Eye Studio in 1993 at the former site of a pet shop on Chiswick High Street, where our main practice can still be found. Since then, The Eye Studio has gone from strength to strength to become the oldest independent optician in the Chiswick area under continuous ownership.
Whilst our commitment to unrivalled customer service has remained the same, The Eye Studio has continually evolved to stay at the forefront of eye care technology. We are one of the longest established providers of Ortho-K, and remain committed to being the most reliable and advanced practitioners of this revolutionary treatment. With our new practice now open in Fulham, The Eye Studio is set to grow ever more successful, delivering top quality eye care to more people than ever before.
