We have practices across Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk in Ely, Downham Market, March, Chatteris and Newmarket, all of which provide our full eye sight and eye care services as well as contact lenses and an extensive range of glasses and sunglasses.
Stuart Gibbs qualified as an Optometrist in 1987 and opened the first Spectacular Opticians branches in March and Downham Market in 1989. Building on their success, the Newmarket branch was opened in 1993, the Chatteris branch in 1998 and the Ely branch in 2000.
Stuart runs the business along with his two brothers, Gareth, an Optometrist and Martin, an Ophthalmologist. (Martin qualified as an eye surgeon in 1987 before joining Spectacular in 1989).
