Lauder and Rees is family owned and run optometrists and opticians established in 1948 in Paddington, London. For more than half a century we have been providing the broadest range of eye care products and services to our patients.

We have worked for 12 years in partnership with Imperial NHS Trust providing children’s, low vision and medical contact lens hospital eye services to patients referred to us on the NHS.

As well as providing these services all of our practices offer the full range of Lauder and Rees eye care products and services to the public.

Our uniqueness is in the eye care services and products we offer, which can improve the vision of a spectrum of patients. Across our practices you will find high street services (sight tests and contact lens assessments) and products (spectacles, sunglasses and contact lenses) as well as more specialised ones tailored to patients with low vision or medical contact lens and artificial eye needs.

Our close working with hospital patients has provided our team with a wealth of experience in assessing and treating complex prescription requirements.

Through our close working with clinicians we are well placed should you require a referral.
