At Colin Picken Eyecare, we strive to offer something for everyone – young or old. As an independent optician, we are not tied to any specific supplier and are constantly looking to refresh our range of frames to introduce something new and different to offer our clientele.
So, whether you like funky, on-trend shapes and styles, or more traditional classic frames, we are confident you will find something to suit your individual style and budget.
We all know the risks of cancer from prolonged sun exposure, but did you know that exposure to harmful UV rays can accelerate the development of cataracts and macular degeneration? UV rays penetrate the atmosphere even on cloudy days, so it’s important to use good quality sun protection to look after your eyes all year round.
We are proud to be an authorised retailer of Maui Jim sunglasses. These premium quality sunglasses incorporate a superior polarising filter to block 100% of all harmful UV rays and have earned the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation. The addition of colour enhancing minerals provides the very best in glare protection whilst helping you see the world in glorious, eye-popping colour.
The difference compared to ‘standard’ sunglasses really does need to be seen to be believed – it’s incredible! We carry 24 unique styles, which can be purchased ‘off the rack’ as non-prescription, or ordered to your current spectacle prescription as either single vision or varifocals.

In fact, when it comes to ‘UV ray banning’ there are plenty of alternatives to the usual ‘go to’ brand. Choose from a fantastic range of award-winning British sunwear from established brands including Jenson and Cocoa Mint.
We also stock the brand new range from Land Rover – British made and delivering performance design alongside Land Rover’s unmistakable aesthetics, these frames are the epitome of style and substance.
The vast majority of our sunglasses are available in prescription and non-prescription options. Whether you use glasses or contact lenses – or neither – we have options for everyone.
Contact lens wearers on our membership scheme can also enjoy the benefit of 25% discount on all of our sunglasses range*.
