The quality of personal service is the hallmark of this ophthalmic opticians and this is reflected in the whole ethos of this highly professional concern. Located in Histon, a busy village with many other villages nearby and close to Cambridge, this is a good opportunity for a variety of potential buyers.

Established thirty years ago it is now for sale as the vendor wishes to retire.

The business offers a variety of optical services including sight tests, contact lenses, colorimetry, digital retinal imaging, visual field and glaucoma tests as well as offering expert knowledge and advice.

The business enjoys an excellent reputation within the area for the high quality and friendly services offered, which has resulted in an ever growing loyal client base with a large amount of repeat trade and word of mouth referrals.


This is a highly profitable concern with an increasing turnover in excess of £160,000 p.a (on 3½ days’ testing) for the year ended March 2016 with the high G.P. you would expect from this type of business. Full accounts are available to interested parties after meeting the vendor.

Only due for sale as the vendor wishes to retire, it is currently run by the vendor with three part time assistants. This is an ideal acquisition either for another sole trader wishing to acquire a ready made turnkey operation or a larger concern wishing to absorb the existing client base.
