London’s leading  optician; thinking big when it comes to care, service, and style.


Over 20 years ago Eye Emporium founders Mohmood & Salim noticed a lack of quality eye care in London. With the rest of the family who also trained as Opticians, they set about bringing the personal touch to their newly opened independent eyewear chain.



Our history:

Eye Emporium started as a family owned optician. We opened our first branch of Eye Emporium back in 1996 in Bethnal Green offering contact lenses and professional eye care services.
