Farmilo Optometrist : Francis St

Visit our Francis Street branch in South Leicester

Farmilo Optometrists has had a practice on Francis Street in Stoneygate – just south of Leicester’s city center – for more than 25 years.

Having taken over William York’s practice in 1991, Liz and David Farmilo have grown the Francis Street and nearby Queens Road practices through word of mouth and recommendations thanks to the excellent care and personal service that customers receive. Liz Farmilo is a specialist in Colorimetry and visual stress.

We are able to help patients to identify whether precision tinted spectacle lenses can help improve those experiencing visual discomfort and dyslexia.

For those with limited mobility, the Francis Street branch offers accessible ground floor consulting rooms.

Our expert team of highly-qualified optometrists and dispensing opticians deliver the highest standards of clinical care. We provide the most accurate advice available – all tailored to meet your individual requirements.

We have an impressive selection of designer and fashion eyewear – many of which are exclusive to us in Leicester. We have more than 1,000 frames in stock, as well as a wide selection of catalogues you can order from, helping you find the right frame.

We recently launched our own brand of affordable eyewear – Bray and Co. For every pair of Bray & Co. frames we sell, we give a pair to someone in need through the charitable foundation Vision Aid Overseas.

We also offer a wide range of contact lenses suitable for nearly all prescriptions. Whether you wear contact lenses all the time, socially, during sport or are simply trying them for the first time, our ‘Try Before You Buy service’ lets you test them out free of charge.

Many of our staff have been with us for a number of years, and there is always a friendly face to welcome you to one of our branches. Whatever your requirements, we’d love to provide you with the support and service you need.

Please feel free to drop by and visit us, or alternatively, to book an appointment at our Francis Street branch, call 0116 270 0044.
