In 1995, when leading optometrist Gillian Whitby set up Whitby & Co., her aim was to provide clinical excellence, specialist eye care using the latest technology, and the kind of traditional personal service that was disappearing fast even then.

Thirty years on, that care and diligence has earned Whitby & Co. a prestigious reputation.

A Greener future

Sustainability is ever more important to us.

Being green in healthcare is not always easy but where we can, we choose green.

  • Our primary lens supplier prides itself on eco-friendly manufacturing processes.
  • We recycle used contact lenses.
  • We supply reusable cotton drawstring bags.
  • We stock eco-friendly glasses frames brands.
  • We use free refillable bottles for glasses-cleaning fluid.
  • We prefer digital to printed copy.
  • We use QR codes instead of business cards.

And, we are always looking to improve.

It is seldom that you find real customer care these days but Whitby & Co went above and beyond in finding the right glasses and lenses for me.
The optometrist and dispensing optician were both hugely knowledgeable and took the time to try different possibilities to find exactly the right solution.

A friendly welcome and most important reliable service keeps me returning to Whitby & Co for my optical requirements and most recently I got my holiday jabs done in the same visit with their travel clinic.
Thank you. I'll be back.
