The spirit of Concept is bold, anarchic and, fiercely independent. Our story began in Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne, inspired by one man’s vision to create a clinic for eye examinations with great design, bespoke service and talented people at the helm. The future of advanced eye care is here.
Concept Eye Clinic is an independent company founded in the North East of England. The first flagship clinic opened on Gosforth High Street, Newcastle upon Tyne in 2008. This was soon followed by a coastal practice in Tynemouth, Melrose in the Scottish Borders and in Bridgwater, Somerset. Concept provides a luxury state-of-the-art opticians’ service for private and NHS patients using Zeiss lens technology and latest optical instruments including wide field retinal imagery (250*), OCT and Zeiss iProfiler. Concept eye wear includes collections from Lindberg, Tom Ford, Oliver People, Orgreen, Gotti, RayBan and, avant garde frames such as FEB 31st and Maui Jim sunglasses. Reflecting the needs and lifestyle of contact lens wearers, access to latest lens design, exclusive eye wear and advanced eye examinations are made affordable with Concepts bespoke vision care programmes.
You will find our coastal Concept in Tynemouth, a few minutes from the sea. No.25 Front Street looks like it has stepped out of a story book. Peer through it’s windows and you are invited in to a curious world of fabulous frames holding their own magic and narrative. The décor has a rustic charm and you can’t help but notice this is a very different kind of opticians. Yes, they do eye examinations here too, contact lens assessments and, Blephex eye lid hygiene clinics to treat dry eyes. Zeiss lens technology alongside stylish frames and sunglasses from Oliver Peoples and Tom Ford to the quirky insouciance of Vinylize.
