A Bold New Vision

Blending the art of the optometrist with a gold standard in clinical consultation, Concept is the destination for eye care.

Welcome to Concept Eye Clinic

At Concept, we are uncompromising in our vision to simply provide you with the best possible experience in eye care in the North East. Behind the scenes, the company’s creation was underpinned by a social model providing clinical care to communities who are impacted by social and health inequalities, with the principle that access to eye health care is not just a privilege, but a human right. We reach out to those that need us most, across the social spectrum.

It’s the ‘story behind the frame’ however that sets us apart. There’s a central narrative premise in what we do. It may be Oliver Peoples ‘anniversary’ limited edition spectacles to commemorate the soloist artist, Takahiro Miyashita, or the actor Gregory Peck in his depiction of Atticus Finch. Frame collections are an avant-garde, retrospective, luxury and often hallmarked by an unusual design feature such as the featherlight, hingeless technology of Lindberg. Vinylize spectacles are handmade from upcycled vinyl records, or February 31st is all about sustainable wood. The ‘story’ is as important as the frame. Stories create memories and an emotional experience personal to each of us. Frames are perceived as a lifestyle statement, to complement our personality and the image we strive to project. Concept celebrates life.

Since the inception of our flagship clinic in the North East over a decade ago, the journey has been an exciting tour de force, with the spirit of the company remaining fiercely dynamic, creative and indefatigable. Our people embody the Concept ethos and are at the heart of everything we do.
