We are an Independent Opticians in Mirfield, with dedicated and knowledgable staff, providing Eye Tests, Standard & Designer Glasses, Contact Lenses & advice on eye health and vision optimisation.


We provide Mirfield and the surrounding areas with the highest standard of eyecare using the very latest in eye examination technology, coupled with the latest in spectacle lenses, designer glasses and contact lens technology with dedicated and professional staff.


The owners, Dr Elvira Akhtar and her husband Mr Atiq Akhtar, took over the Opticians in December 2015 and are registered Optometrists – with over 24 years combined experience in the optical profession.
Having worked for the majority of multiple Opticians, Atiq & Ellie found that with production line policies there simply wasn’t always the time to provide quality eyecare, or the most appropriate product available.


Having our own practice has allowed us to do things our way,  priding ourselves on offering excellent customer service in a modern family friendly environment. Our professional staff have over 40 years combined experience in optics. You can be assured of a warm welcome and the benefit of our wide knowledge of lenses and frames. Being Independent allows us to offer impartial advice on all your eyecare needs, from accessories and magnifiers to vitamin supplements and eye drops. Our independence also enables us to provide you with the most appropriate product available on the market for you – sourcing them locally, nationally or internationally.


Visiting your local Optometrist for an eye examination has never been so important. With an ageing population, eye disorders are on the increase and so we at Hanson Opticians are staying on top of the most current methods of management and treatment for our patients at no additional cost. Our Comprehensive Eye Examination utilises the latest in diagnostic equipment and combines proven research from journals & courses attended by our Optometrists to provide YOU with the latest in advice on how to keep your eyes healthy & vision great.


We are involved with many shared care schemes with our neighbouring Hospitals and GP Medical Practices. These include the Glaucoma Monitoring Scheme, The Ocular Hypertensive Monitoring Scheme, Direct Cataract Referral, Macular Degeneration Urgent Referral and the Primary Eyecare Acute Referral Scheme(PEARS). The PEARS scheme allows us to undertake further tests in our practice – as an NHS patient, thus reducing the unneccessary waiting times at the Hospital Eye Department.


We hope you enjoy looking through our website and hope to have the pleasure of seeing you soon.
