Adam Simmonds Optometrist Adam Simmonds Optometrist

Located in London’s Primrose Hill, Adam Simmonds Optometrist is a small, independent business that offers specialist eye tests and top-quality designer optical frames.

Adam Simmonds Optometrist stands out from the other eye care practices by sticking strictly to the traditional values of customer care, and offering only the top-quality optical frame designs. Through this piece we will be exploring who Adam Simmonds is, the ins and outs of the Adam Simmonds Optometrist business and what this independent private practice has to offer.

Who is Adam Simmonds?

Adam Simmonds is an optometrist and the proud owner of Adam Simmonds Optometrist. He is a specialist not only in optometry, but also in progressive lenses (using them himself) and in treating dry eyes. In addition to this, Adam is also a member of the British College of Optometrists, and studied Ophthalmic Optics at The City University in London.

At only 26 years old, Adam Simmonds created his first opticians in Soho called Eye-Tech, which became renowned for a combination of excellent, and formerly unheard of, optical frame designs and fantastic customer service. Adam later sold Eye-Tech in the early 90s and took a seven-year sabbatical. In 2001, Adam Simmonds Optometrist was then established, and had instilled the same values from the earlier Eye-Tech of great quality designs with superb and personal customer care.

Adam believes that in the mass globalisation of optometry businesses, the world of eye care has become somewhat lost, impersonal, and fixated too much on sales. Therefore, Adam Simmonds Optometrist strives to stick to traditional values, with customer care tailored specifically to the individual’s needs, never putting a sale above someone’s eye care. It is for this reason the Primrose Hill private practice’s integrity has never wavered, and if a customer does not need glasses, they will not be urged to purchase them, and rather suggested to do eye exercises to help reduce eye strain.

Adam Simmonds is therefore an optometrist who is passionate about his trade, and wants to provide his customers with the best possible experience when entering his business.
