Scrivens Opticians was founded by a qualified optician and pharmacist ‘Solomon Scriven’ in 1938. Originally starting operating within the heart of the Midlands, Scrivens Opticians had a focus on customer care and excellent eye-care service. The business expanded rapidly at the end of the Second World War, and by the early 1950’s paid witness to new stores opening in London and Sheffield.

It was during this same period that a hearing aid service was introduced into Scrivens Opticians practices to provide an additional dimension to their service and increase customer choice.

Today, there are over 140 stores across England and they are continuing to expand. As well as Scrivens Opticians, over the years they have acquired a number of practices to extend their branches even further North, East and South.  These include Ronald Brown Opticians, Optique Opticians, Eye Check Opticians, selected branches of Rayner Opticians and Lancaster & Thorpe Opticians, Tillett Adams Opticians, Walker & Norris Opticians in Herne Bay, Lords of North Walsham Opticians, Everybody’s Optician in Fishponds, Fakenham Optometrists,  Stokes Opticians in Bolton, J Ellis Opticians in Yardley, Direkt Optik in Colchester and Crown Optical in Thirsk.

Their aim is to provide all their customers with fantastic customer service and eye-care on a local level. They also apply these principles to their hearing service. The expansion of Hearing Care (formerly The Hearing Company), their hearing care service, has boosted their continued steady growth, and they now provide hearing care in many external optical retailers. Hearing Care now boasts a hearing care service in over 200 Scrivens Opticians outlets nationwide.

Scrivens Opticians has been, and still remains today, a family company built on solid foundations. At Scrivens Opticians, their mission is to make sure customer get the service and care needed for them and their whole family.
