The University of Portsmouth Eye Clinic offers full optician services including check-up and prescription services, glasses and contact lenses plus excellent aftercare service.
If you wear glasses, or simply need your eyes tested, we can meet all your eye health needs – from a total check-up and prescription services, to glasses and contact lenses that combine good looks and comfort, plus excellent aftercare service.

We run specialist clinics in binocular vision, visual stress and for those with additional needs through our partnership with Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association.
