Robson Opticians

 Advanced Eyecare 150 Years in the Making

Welcome to Robson Opticians.

We are the longest established Opticians practice in the North East, having been founded in 1867 during the reign of Queen Victoria.

In the intervening years much has changed, however we are still guided by the founding principles of independence, high quality products and exceptional service that were laid out by Frederick Robson over 150 years ago.

We offer Private and NHS sight tests as well as contact lens fittings and aftercares.

Our vast catalogue of frames allows us to find the right style and fit for even the most discerning tastes and being a completely Independent supplier allows us to source lenses from a wide range of manufacturers, so we can be confident of identifying and supplying the correct lenses for each individuals’ needs.

We are located on Pilgrim Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, opposite the former location of the original Odeon Cinema ( now called The Stack, Newcastle )  and just across the road from Northumberland Street.
