Heathrow Airport Sunglasses

Sunglasses, eye tests and prescription spectacles near the Heathrow Airport

Here at Cranford Opticians we’re very proud of our location on the north-eastern edge of London Heathrow, one of the world’s busiest airports.

As well as being one of the leading opticians in Hounslow, we are always on hand to help out people travelling across the world through the airport next door.

We’re an award-winning practice and we know the sort of problems travellers can face:

  • Running out of contact lenses or solution

  • Broken glasses or lost glasses

  • Lost or delayed luggage – with their glasses or contact lenses packed in it

  • Urgent eye problems such as irritated eyes, painful eyes, red eyes or a sudden change in vision

In most cases, we’ll be able to help. As one customer, J. M. Wagner, said:

“Very nice and friendly team and good, fast service. I needed contact lenses ASAP while at the airport – they were my only rescue.”

We can assist with same-day appointments – please call as early in the day as possible, on +44 208 759 9395 to tell us your problem, or book online

Cranford Opticians offers a fast response in a crisis. We can arrange same-day eye appointments and eye tests in most cases.

We can test your eyes, supply glasses, repair glasses and fit and supply contact lenses – often on a same-day basis.

Our urgent eye services also include dry eye, watery eye, red eye assessment and treatment, removing a foreign body (something in the eye), minor eye injuries, eye infections and sudden changes in vision.

We can carry out a 3D OCT Scan, an advanced eye check which looks at the retina in more detail and can pick up unwanted changes much earlier than other tests.

Another customer, A. McGhee, reported:

“My husband broke his glasses and the optician and her team managed an emergency repair on the same day. Great service and lovely helpful people too.”

You can walk in with a problem – and walk out feeling reassured and looking great with one of our range of modern, stylish frames.

We are proud to be well established in the Hounslow community, but our proximity to Heathrow Airport meaning our customers come from far and wide.

We have regular customers who live in countries including China, Vietnam, France, Nigeria and Sweden. Many travel to the UK regularly for work, while others have family here. They come to us because they trust our high-quality eye care and excellent service.

We stock sunglasses for customers of all ages, including for children from three months old right through to adults. Supplying people with high quality frames and lenses for use in sunnier climates has led to them becoming regular customers of Cranford Opticians.

We also have customers who work at the airport as air crew, ground staff and airport support staff including drivers, courier services, those in admin, catering and hotel related services.
