Nottingham's Independent Opticians - Loxley Opticians & Eyewear

About Nottingham's Newest Independent Opticians

An Independent Opticians

Loxley is a family run independent opticians, based in the heart of Nottingham’s City Centre. For us being independent means more than just a name, we focus on personalised one-to-one service where your optical stylist will help you make the perfect choice of glasses. We offer the largest selection of eye-catching (we couldn’t help ourselves!) independent eyewear in Nottingham City Centre.

You’ll always find Indy, our resident optometrist and director to hand. If he’s ever away reins are passed to his sister or brother ensuring the service and care you receive never falters. Professionally, Indy and his sister are qualified optometrists.

Our foundations are based on forming long term relationships.

Our faces are the first thing people see when they meet us, and it’s what they remember us by. So your eyewear plays a big part, be it glasses, sunglasses or contact lenses. We help you project the image you want to the outside world.

The lenses are equally as important as the eyewear. Our preferred lens partners are Carl Zeiss and BBGR, as an independent opticians we are able to supply Essilor (Varilux), Nikon, Hoya and Seiko. We know a visit to a traditional opticians can be overwhelming with all the choices of lenses, coatings and so on. Which is why we include an anti-reflective coating (so your vision is more comfortable) and hard coat (so your lenses don’t scratch as easily) on ALL our lenses as standard, at no extra cost. All our lens tints come with full UV 400 protection, as standard.


The Loxley way

As a family run independent opticians we are personable and flexible, we understand your needs are unique. We are always on the forefront of eye health, to ensure you and your family receive the best health care. To see our specialists visit our store in Nottingham’s City Centre on Friar Lane. 

The Loxley Promise

Eye Test

We are focused on providing total eye care for you and your family. Our eye examinations (Eye Test) are 45 minutes rather than the typical 20-30 minutes you find on the high street, followed by your very own personalised styling. All our Eye Tests are carried out at our Nottingham City Centre Opticians, on Friar Lane.

Glasses & Sunglasses

We are fashion orientated, with a fine eye for detail and quality. We pride ourselves in supporting independent eyewear, giving you a choice of unique eyewear. Indy and his siblings travel around the world, meeting inspirational independent eyewear designers, who share the same values as Loxley.

We also have a range of accessories like Glasses chains, Sunglasses clips, Cases, Glasses cleaning cloth & spray, replacement screws & nose pads.


When it comes to lenses we work with industry leaders, offering an array of lens manufacturers (like Carl Zeiss, BBGR and Essilor). With our understanding of your needs and with the guidance of our experts, we will recommend the perfect lenses to suit your lifestyle.
