Supplying the finest eyewear

At Gibson & Syme we endeavour to supply the finest eyewear with timeless style and no compromise on quality. To top this off we provide exemplary customer service, with smashing prices and a pinch of British charm thrown in for good measure. David Syme started the business back in 2004 with a vision to sell quality spectacles at competitive prices.


Expert Knowledge and Advice

At our Showroom you’ll find eyewear from the world’s top spectacle designers such as Tom Ford, Face a Face and Silhouette, combined with exceptional customer service, product knowledge and expert advice. We believe choosing new eyewear isn’t merely about function – it’s about form too which is why we encourage you to try on various styles and brands until you find the perfect pair - and we’re here to help or offer advice every step of the way. 

When you’ve chosen your new glasses, we can order the most suitable lenses from your prescription or book an eye test if one is due. If you’re concerned about any aspect of your sight, we can also carry out an OCT screening using the most advanced Spectralis 4D eye scanner, which detects possible eye conditions such as glaucoma or macular degeneration before they become a cause for concern.
