Our small and friendly team at Brown & Humphreys Opticians pride ourselves on providing all our customers with the highest level of care. We place great emphasis on looking after the needs of each of our individual customers in and around the Scarborough area.

We provide sight tests to check your vision and the health of your eyes, contact lens fittings and checks, home visits, VDU Screening, Low Vision Aid appointments.

As a local and independently owned practice, we are able to deal with a much larger variety of suppliers and are not limited by the restrictions that are widely imposed in larger optical chains. We are also happy to assist our customers who require frames or lenses outside our normal ranges and hope to meet each person’s requirements.

Please feel free to come in for a chat anytime and have a browse.

At Brown & Humphreys, our aim is to give each individual customer the best choice available, be it quality budget frames or top designer ranges such as Silhouette, Elle, Esprit & Euroflex.

Brown & Humphreys offers a wide range of hand picked frames, for those that like something different.

A regular eye test is an important health check for everyone, even if your eyesight is fine. The back of the eye is the one place where our veins and arteries are in full view so their health can be assessed and an eye test can provide early warning of potentially serious eye and general health conditions. Sight tests are at the core of the service that we provide.

At Brown & Humphreys our resident Optometrist, Stephen Brown, BSc (Hons) M.C.Optom welcomes clients old and new for a thorough eye examination including a glaucoma check providing a new spectacle or new contact lens prescription if required.

We also provide corporate sight tests and VDU screening for companies in and around the Scarborough area.

Mr Brown is also able to visit you in your own home as he has specialist portable equipment, and will bring with him a wide choice of frames. This can be done either privately or via the NHS subject to conditions.

Get peace of mind and book your sight test today.

Mr Stephen Brown can fit contact lenses of all types for you. Whether wanted for active sports, social wear or just for that different look, Stephen fits contact lenses for comfort and effectiveness for all eye prescriptions including daily replacement soft lenses, monthly replacement soft lenses, gas permeable lenses, lenses for astigmatism and multi-focal contact lenses.

Cathryn B – I always come to Brown & Humphreys for both my spectacles and contact lenses, as nothing is too much trouble and they are all very friendly and helpful.

Norma F – My husband and I have been at Brown & Humphreys Opticians for nearly 30 years and have always been given kindness and professional care.

Edna B – I have been at the same Opticians for 23 years, and often pop in to see what exciting new frames they have in. I would not be tempted to go somewhere else as it is so friendly here.

Home Visits

If you have mobility difficulties in coming to visit us at our practice we can visit you at home for your eye test. We have all the equipment needed to provide you with a thorough eye test in the comfort of your own home. We bring an extensive range of eyewear too, so choosing at home doesn’t mean you go short of frame choice. We then promptly return to comfort-fit your new eyewear.
