About Us

Designer Glasses at Great Prices

Faversham Optical was founded in 2009 by Dispensing Optician Chris Richards BSc FBDO. Initially, we provided training to optical professionals and practice managers, and we continue to provide management consultancy and advice to a range of optical companies in the South East.

In 2013 we branched out into online spectacles as we felt there was an opportunity to provide quality designer spectacles and sunglasses at a fraction of the usual High Street price. We aim to cut prices, not quality.

Now we have been online for ten years, we have established ourselves in a competitive market and continue to offer a great service at a great price.

We are constantly adding new products and designer brands.

We can supply everything your regular optician can at a fraction of the price.

Our local home dispensing service

All spectacles are made in the UK and sourced through UK suppliers.
