Temporarily Closed

At Standen Opticians, the health and wellbeing of our patients and staff is of the utmost importance. Given the current situation with COVID-19 we have had to take the difficult decision to close the practice. If you are awaiting contact lenses or spectacles, we will call you when they arrive and arrange an appropriate way for you to collect them. If you have an urgent query or concern please leave a message on the answer machine or email us at neil@standenopticians.co.uk and we will come back to you.

Our team remains committed to providing our patients with excellent customer care and service. We will, of course continue to be guided by Public Health England and other relevant authorities through this unprecedented time.

We wish everyone well during these challenging times please stay safe.

Best Regards
All at Standen Opticians

After falling in love with Cornwall's beautiful coastline and countryside, Neil and Karen Standen decided to make Cornwall their permanent home in the year 2000. Standen Opticians was set up later on that year and has been a great success ever since. Karen has 25 years experience as an Optometrist, and Neil has been a Dispensing Optician for almost 30 years now. Between them, the couple have a vast amount of experience in their field, a caring outlook and a lot of passion for what they do. Living in Cornwall has given Neil the opportunity to pursue his love of the great outdoors, and for Karen, it reminds her of her beloved native Northern Ireland. They have settled happily and have two wonderful boys.


We all want to look good in the sun and what better way to do that than with a pair of stylish brand name sunglasses?


Unfortunately accidents do sometimes happen and they always seem to happen at the worst possible time.


The basics are fundamental – get this right and you’ll have the right solution for your sight.
