Gosforth Opticians

A flagship Concept

Our story began over a decade ago with a vision to blend the art of the optometrist with a gold standard in patient care. An abiding passion led to the creation of a flagship eye boutique on Gosforth High Street, followed by Front Street, Tynemouth. Progressively, Concept has become a North East destination for eye tests and designer glasses. What sets us apart is our investment and innovation in style, clinical technology, our affordable Care Plan model, our lenses and a heartfelt determination to source the best people to look after you at our Gosforth opticians. Our frames provide their own narrative. Many are handmade, unusual and, discerningly chosen with you in mind. We are inspired by the people we serve and are privileged to meet. As we look to further scientific and aesthetic advances in eye care, the Concept journey continues.
