Mike Addison Optician
Being completely independent means we have the freedom to choose the ranges of frames and lenses that best suit our patient’s needs, lifestyle and budget.
All of our staff are local to this area, which means that the people we see every day inthe practice aren’t just ‘patients’ – they are our neighbours, family and friends!
Being independent and local does not restrict our abilities and professionalism. We pride ourselves on the unique, bespoke service, where all of your optical requirements are met.
Above all else, our greatest asset is our ability to provide our patients with time! Time to identify your requirements, time to provide you with the best service possible.

About Us

Mike Addison Opticians Team

Mike Addison Opticians Kirkby Stephens


Mike Addison Optician Ltd is a truly independent professional optical company covering the Eden Valley and beyond.

We have two main practices, one in the historic Shire Hall on Appleby’s famous ‘Sands’ and another in the beautiful market town of Kirkby Stephen. We also hold a fortnightly satellite clinic at the Shap Medical Practice, Shap.

Our practices are a perfect blend of all that you would expect from a traditional optician mixed with some of the most up to date equipment for examining eyes and vision.

Each practice has a very comfortable, relaxed yet professional ambience. As soon as you walk in you are greeted by one of our friendly, professional team, who will instantly give you a feeling of reassurance and put you at ease.
