About us

Optometrist – Mrs Anne Richardson, B.Sc, FCOptom.

After graduating with a 1st class degree from Bradford University in 1978, Mrs Richardson finished her training at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London in 1979. Having worked for a variety of independent opticians mixed with some hospital work, Mrs Richardson took over from Cliff Wilks when he retired from Second Sight in 2004, having worked with him for the previous 10 years.

Her areas of special interest include Low Vision, and she has a good relationship with Sutton Vision, a local charity providing low vision services in the community.

Since taking over Second Sight Mrs Richardson has concentrated on maintaining the excellent customer service and value offered previously, while investing in the latest equipment. A complete shop fit in 2013 incorporating new display units was undertaken.

Being registered with the Sutton and Merton NHS means Mrs Richardson can provide service to adults with learning difficulties. This new role has proved to be very rewarding. Domiciliary Home visits in the Sutton NHS area can also be provided for clients who are housebound for medical reasons. Mrs Richardson carries out all the home visits personally.

Reception Staff

Our reception staff have years of experience in the field and are always ready to give you  advice. They are adept at minor repairs and can often get you out of trouble in a “broken specs” emergency.

Optical Technician

Paul, of Fieldstyle Trading, Coombe Lane, Wimbledon.

Paul makes up most of our spectacles. With his skill, advice and attention to detail he plays a vital role in Second Sight’s day to day operation. He takes great pride in his work and sets very high standards for himself and the finished spectacles he produces for you.


Spectacle frame suppliers are chosen carefully. We  look for quality frames, and just as important, quality back up and service.

We maintain a good relationship with all our suppliers and ensure that we carry as wide a selection of frames as possible so you have plenty to chose from. These  include  the latest modern frames (including childrens’) and our range of budget frames.

Contact Lenses

We fit all types of contact lenses and source lenses from any company that makes the lenses you need.
