About Us

At Peter Jackson Opticians.

We believe that having your eyes examined and purchasing eyewear should be one of life’s pleasures. And we have the formula to make it one. We start with an examination process that is clever and honest, uses the latest technology and with a personal and caring touch from our Optometrists. We use the results to craft eyewear that is beautiful and bespoke. And we have a team who are passionate and genuine. We strive to deliver a fantastic product, be it glasses, sunglasses or contact lenses, backed up by great service. Our vision is to change the industry, positively and permanently; and whilst we’re at it, we hope to empower individuality and self-expression through beautiful eyewear, great care, an inviting practice and incredible people.


                                                                        so that’s us…that has always been us!

                                                                                                            Since 1956


Established in 1956, Peter Jackson Opticians is the longest serving eye care specialist in Wigston, Leicestershire.

PJO was established by Mr Peter Spence Jackson with the sole intention to provide the highest quality eye care using the latest technology. 60 years on, this ethos lives on stronger than ever throughout all parts of the practice. Our practice is equipped with the latest technology in eye examination such as a state of the art OCT scanner and retinal camera. We have introduced electronic measuring devices that allow us to provide bespoke spectacle lenses fitted to a huge range of spectacle frames to suit all styles and budget.

Practice partners Ali Meghjee and Maz Gulamhusein worked closely with previous partners Kathryn Harper and Martin Stevenson prior to their retirement. They are focused on making sure everyone enjoys their experience at PJO. So not only will you be sure to receive a warm welcome with us, we will accompany that with a warm drink just how you like it and a cheeky biscuit if you are tempted.

Ali Meghjee resided in Jersey, Channel Islands prior to taking up his position at Peter Jackson Opticians. He has vast experience in introducing new technology into the industry to enhance the levels of service and eye care available to all. Experienced in fitting all types of contact lenses and having worked in multiple environments including the hospital eye service, Ali makes sure that your eye care needs are met.

Maz Gulamhusein is an experienced optometrist who specialises in paediatric eye care. He is a member of the British Association in Behavioural Optometry and has introduced enhanced paediatric services to PJO over the past few years. Maz regularly carries out dyslexia assessments, visual therapy and Progress in Academic Skills and Development assessments.

The practice has undergone a major refurbishment in 2018 and is a pleasant and relaxed environment for all.

Ali and Maz are supported by consultant optometrist Fatima Gaffar. Fatima joined the Peter Jackson family as it allowed her to spend time with patients to provide the specialist level of eye care she believes they deserve. Fully trained in interpreting OCT scans of the retina, Fatima ensures that all patients leave with a full and comprehensive explanation of their eyes and vision.

The professional staff are supported by Assistant Manager Becky and her fantastic team of Optical Advisor’s – Annie, Sophie, Jade, Taylor and Sarah.
