More than just spectacles

We are a full service independent optometry practice located in Preston and we’ve been caring for our wonderful local community here, and beyond, for over 30 years. We love being independent because it means we are focused only on giving you what you need and helping you have the best vision and eye health we can.

At Spectacles Galore, we believe everyone deserves quality, affordable eye care.


With over 40 years’ optical industry experience, it’s fair to say that
optical dispenser Gerard Schoofs knows a thing or two about lenses.
He gained his qualifications working in the labs manufacturing lenses for OPSM but the desire to offer a more personal, one on one eye care service only grew. In 1990, Gerard took the plunge and ventured out on his own.

Being able to give customers and patients exactly what they needed, and to customise solutions to their specific and unique needs and lifestyle, has made all the difference and the practice has continued to grow year after year. Our qualified and experienced optometrists bring a combined 60 years’ experience to the practice as well as offering both Greek and Chinese speaking services as needed
