Our co-director is the principal optometrist at our Shipston on Stour Opticians

Our practice in Shipston on Stour was the fourth location to be added to the growing Walford & Round family, after we acquired it in 2000.

Our co-director Michael Round is one of the two main Shipston on Stour Opticians. He has worked with the company for over fifteen years, but also has a variety of experience overseas, including working in Australia as well as a little closer to home in Wales. Jason Cox also works as an Optician in Shipston on Stour, having been with the company for several years in Stratford upon Avon.

Good Experience

Good experience - seen promptly (slightly ahead of booked time) for my eye test. The new glasses found to be required were available at the time expected and fitted perfectly first time; vision now excellent.

Great service

We as a family have been seeing Mr Hayward for 20byears and we all think he is fantastic. I have just had my eyes tested and now have a new pair of specs, great service as ever.

This was my first visit to W&R, and I found the service I received to be excellent and professional. My eye test was thorough and the advice given was detailed and pragmatic. My new glasses were received quickly and the staff have kept in contact with me to ensure that all continues to be satisfactory. I rate their service highly. Feb 2016

Michael and Jason are supported by a reception team of Allison, Mandy and Helen. They are always ready to answer any queries, book you an appointment or just offer a second opinion if you’re trying to choose new frames! You’ll receive the same first-class service from every member of the team at this practice, so don’t hesitate to give us a call and book an appointment.

Our practice is equipped with the latest optical technology, including a Fundus camera to photograph the back of your eyes. Combined with our comprehensive eye examinations and contact lens fittings, you can be sure that no aspect of your eye health will be missed.

If you struggle to travel to the practice, we can also visit you to carry out a full eye examination in your own home. Please ask one of our reception team about this, and they’ll be happy to give you more details.

For your convenience, free car parking is available for a maximum of two hours, just outside the practice in Sheep Street.
