Prescription Glasses at Whitby & Co
Whitby & Co opticians is an independent optical practice in Central London. We have spent over 20 years finding perfect prescription glasses and frames for hundreds of satisfied clients. We take the hard work out of choosing a new pair of frames or lenses, as our friendly optometrists and opticians share their expertise and guide your through the process.
A perfect frame…
At Whitby & Co. we are proud to offer an extensive range of prescription glasses to suit every lifestyle and budget. We stock an extensive, up-to-date range of designer glasses and specialist spectacle frames, in a wide choice of styles, materials, and sizes. You can be certain of finding the right frames for you here.

Our dispensing opticians will help you choose the options that look best and fit with your prescription and visual needs. Glasses are a visible expression of individual style – we will take the time and care to understand what works best for you.
…with perfect lenses
Our optometrists and opticians are not bound to any single manufacturer or supplier: this applies not just to our spectacle frames, but to our lenses and other products as well.
You may not give much thought to the technical characteristics of your spectacle lenses – but these greatly affect factors like weight, thickness, durability and general appearance.
We’ll take account not only of your visual needs but your work and lifestyle requirements as well. Do you spend a lot of time outdoors or travelling abroad? Then polarised or transition lenses may suit you best. Do you spend a large amount of time in front of a computer, or have you experienced digital eye strain? Then perhaps an occupational lens with a Blue Light Control Coating would be a great fit. Do you play a lot of sports and find you need prescription goggles? Whatever your lifestyle, we are here to understand what is important to you: let our opticians recommend the ideal pair of glasses for you.
We also have our own in-house lab, and can supply many prescriptions from stock – often on a same-day or next-day basis.
Fitting Your Glasses
At Whitby & Co. we provide you with personalised care and attention: starting with an accurate prescription, a well-fitting and perfectly adjusted spectacle frame, correctly glazed with the right choice of lenses. We won’t pressure you into making on-the-spot decisions, or buying products you do not need. After all, we’ve been around for more than 20 years, and we’d like you to keep coming back!
