About Welbourne Opticians

Providing quality eyecare in Lancaster for generations

Walk past our building on King Street and you may be forgiven for thinking that there has been an optometrist in this location for many years. In fact, 3 King Street has been home to an optician since 1933 when Mr Cox opened the doors as Lancaster’s first independent optometrist. 


Welbourne joined Cox in 1974 and in 1993 the practice became known as Welbourne Opticians.


To this day we remain proudly independent, committed to delivering exceptional quality eye care with personal, friendly service.

At our city-centre practice, traditional values and service meet with modern technology to ensure every one of our patients receives the best possible care for their visual needs. 


We believe in thorough, accurate eye examinations that provide us with a complete picture of the health of your eyes. We recommend you the best in frames and lenses, if they are required, and will guide you on the choices available to you so that you are completely happy with your new eyewear or contact lenses.
