About Us

Long established in Wigston, a south Leicester suburb, the partners, Martin Stevenson and Kathryn Harper, took over some 27 years ago. The ethos of the business has always been to provide the highest quality eyecare using the latest technology, both to examine eyes and to dispense cutting edge lenses in a professional and welcoming environment. We have amalgamated our J N Stocks branch into the main Peter Jackson Associates practice, with all of our J N Stocks patient record cards having been transferred to allow continuing care. Our practice is equipped to a very high standard with both diagnostic, clinical equipment and with dispensing tools. We keep abreast of the latest developments and are constantly upgrading our equipment to reflect advances in technology. We have, for instance, just taken receipt of a machine to measure macular pigment density to assist in the assessment of Age Related Macular Degeneration. We have given optical advice to industry throughout our partnership. We are the Leicestershire Fire Service optical advisors and opticians.

The practice has undergone a major refit in early 2013 and is an extremely pleasant environment for both patients and staff.


We have three optometrists: partners Martin Stevenson and Kathryn Harper and part time associate, Elizabeth Kalus. All three have worked in the practice for at least 27 years, so we are a uniquely stable, established and highly respected professional team.

Martin specialises in fitting contact lenses of all descriptions including multifocal lenses and therapeutic lenses such as those used to treat Keratoconus.

Beth has a special interest in low visual aids for those with poor sight and was involved in setting up the Low Vision Aid Centre at Gedding Road, now called Vista.

Kathryn has only recently resigned from the Local Optometric Committee having served many years, as did Martin and Beth previously.

The professional staff is ably supported by our fantastic team of Clinical Assistants – Jane, Sophie, Hollie, Annie, Keely (presently on maternity leave) and our newest addition Emily.
