About Sheinman Opticians
Sheinman Opticians was established in 1915 by A E Turville, one of the founders of modern optometry and under the guidance of J S Sheinman since 1964, we have become one of Europe's largest and most respected optometric practices.
Since its foundation this practice has been involved in clinical research. This has led to the development of techniques and instrumentation to improve sight testing and investigation of the eyes, vision correction and health assessment.
Our routine eye examinations embrace the most forward thinking procedures we can offer. These are available both privately and on the National Health Service. A full list of eligible categories for NHS benefits is available on our NHS page.
We manufacture on the premises and can offer a fast prescription service and respond instantly in emergencies. Having our own laboratory (established in 1922) ensures that we can achieve a completely accurate result. Wherever possible, we use NIKON spectacle lenses, considered the finest ophthalmic prescription lenses available.
Sheinman is also a specialist Contact Lens Centre. We have established large banks of soft and gas-permeable lenses and in most cases we can fit and supply the lenses on the same day. Disposable, frequent replacement and mail order contact lenses are available.
As a research ophthalmic and optometric practice our aim is to continually explore new and more advanced ways of bringing our patients the best in eye-care and eyewear.
Sheinman was the first practice in the UK to install the Optomap® the scanning laser ophthalmoscope (SLO) which produces a wide-field image of the interior of the eye.
