Humphriss & Burgess Opticans

We are  Bedford’s longest established independent optometrists. We combine our Bedford heritage with experience to take the very best care of you and your eyes

We have wheelchair access and blue badge holder parking outside the practice. 

Did you know that your eyes rarely hurt, even if there’s a problem?  This is why it’s vital to have regular eye examinations to check for systematic health issues such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. It can also detect a number of eye conditions at an early stage, such as glaucoma, cataracts, age related macula degeneration and dry eyes. We strive for prevention over cure.  We recommend an eye examination at least every 2 years.

It is FREE for children under 16 or under 18 in full time education, everyone aged 60 and over and certain health and NHS categories. To see if you are entitled for a NHS funded sight test please click here
