About us

Thornton & Wright Opticians was initially established in 1991 by Andrew and Julie Thornton, but gained its full name in 2000 when John Wright joined as a partner. Andrew was born nearby in Northowram


We hope that your new glasses are perfect for you, and stay in top condition for as long as possible. However, we know how easily they can be scratched, bent or broken – but if this is the case there’s no need to worry.


You want to take care of your eyes, and in doing so ensure that your vision remains as good as possible for as long as possible. But wouldn’t it be nice if you could receive that excellent standard of eye care


In the aftermath of the credit crunch, society appears to have adopted a more ‘bargain-hunting’ mindset across the board; from family holidays to grocery shopping, everyone’s on the lookout for the best value
