At Patrick & Menzies we have been looking after people’s eyes for more than 30 years. As a proudly independent opticians, we have four branches in Braintree, Brightlingsea, Manningtree and Mersea. We have always done things a little bit differently from the competition to ensure our patients receive the top-quality care they deserve.
We are committed to providing the very best and most comprehensive service to every patient. We always make time to listen to what you tell us, and understand your eyecare needs. Please let us know when you book your appointment if you prefer to see the same optometrist each time you visit.
If you would like to book an eye test, arrange to see a dispensing optician, or you have a concern about your vision, please do get in touch.
