Why choose Grundy and Naisbitt Opticians?

Grundy and Naisbitt is an independent optometry (ophthalmic opticians) practice located inside M.Whitfield (the chemist) in Coxhoe, Durham. We offer NHS and private eye examinations and are happy to examine patients of all ages. Home visits are available for the housebound.

  • Our practice is centred around you – the patient. We don’t have dispensing or sales targets.

  • Our eye examinations include digital retinal photography at no extra charge.

  • Free spectacles for NHS qualifying patients.
  • We fit all types of contact lenses, including daily disposable, toric (to correct astigmatism) and varifocal.
  • Home visit eye examinations available.
