WHO ARE WE

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 budgets.

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 we can tempt you.

"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's always been us! Since 1956
