London Eye Bespoke Eyewear

Who we are

Your local experts in eyewear fashion and care

Over 23 Years Of Experience in High Fashion Eyewear

London Eye Bespoke Eyewear’s founder, Paul started working in the designer eyewear industry back in 1997, originally managing brands such as Chanel, BVLGARI and Tag Heuer. Over the years Paul travelled around the UK visiting opticians every day and when back in his hometown Newark, he saw the town was missing the unique eyewear that was available elsewhere in the UK, especially London. The idea was to bring London style to Newark. 
The store began on London Road in 2013, but we quickly outgrew our small store and moved to our current Chain Lane location that used to be a menswear store. 
More recently we have moved over to more boutique designers such as Markus T and Sabine Be. This decision was made as we saw the rise in online eyewear sales and decided to stock more brands that are not available for online purchase.
