As of the 5th of November 2020 we are adhering to the U.K Government’s national lockdown guidance and will be temporarily closed.

We request that our existing clients call us on 01202529414 and leave a detailed voicemail or send an email to with your enquiry so that we can get back to you accordingly and coordinate things further.

At this time we will not be accepting any new clients.

Take care and we look forward to speaking with you soon.

Still & Bedford

Independent Private Eyecare

We believe in a different approach to eye care- focused on ethics, honesty and integrity. At our private independent boutique practice you are not a statistic, you are our valued client. We offer advice based on what we believe will genuinely help you, rather than to meet targets.

We have provided excellence in eye care to a large local community in Bournemouth for over 70 years, a foundation built on our clients’ trust. We are proud to say the majority of clients join our practice after recommendations from family, friends and other healthcare professionals.

We’re an experimentally progressive optical boutique.
