Our History

Being the founder practice and part of the square mile of London originally from 1905, the city part of Hodd Barnes & Dickins has been the hub of optics in the city. Always striving with innovative techniques in contact lens wear and excellence in optical health has allowed the city practice to provide eye care to the financial centre of the country for over a century.

Since moving to our current premises in the late 1980’s, the Mason’s Avenue Practice has maintained its status as one of the most professional independent Opticians in the City of London. A policy of only employing professionally trained staff, introducing the latest diagnostic instrumentation and fully computerising the Practice, has carried the Company successfully into the 21st Century.

With a team of Experienced Optometrists using 3 fully equipped consulting rooms, Professionally Qualified Dispensing Opticians and Fully Qualified Optical Assistants, we are able to offer a high standard of service and investigate the most challenging of eye conditions and spectacle prescriptions.
