Welcome to Moorhouse Opticians

Moorhouse Opticians is a family business, established in 1919. We are your local independent opticians in the Central Yorkshire area. We believe in providing you with a good old fashioned customer service: our opticians take their time over every eye examination ensuring that every test is performed to the highest standard. Our friendly staff will help you choose from a wide range of frames, from budget to designer brands, sunglasses or contact lenses and also advise on our extensive range of fantastic lenses.

When W.E. Moorhouse established Moorhouse Opticians, his ethos printed on the back of the till receipts, was "Friendly, Personal and Professional ". We have remained true to this aspiration throughout our existence. Read more about the history of Moorhouse Opticians in the ABOUT section.
