About Us

Hodd Barnes & Dickins

Since Hodd Barnes & Dickins moved to our current premises in the late 1980’s, the Mason’s Avenue Practice has maintained its status as one of the most professional independent Opticians in the City of London. A policy of only employing professionally trained staff, introducing the latest diagnostic instrumentation and fully computerising the Practice, has carried the Company successfully into the 21st Century.

With a team of Experienced Optometrists using 3 fully equipped consulting rooms,  Professionally Qualified Dispensing Opticians and Fully Qualified Optical Assistants, we are able to offer a high standard of service and investigate the most challenging of eye conditions and spectacle prescriptions.

Having been involved in many of the spectacle and contact lens developments over the past 100 years, we have developed a level of expertise that allows us to fit all types of spectacle and contact lenses. Indeed, we are often invited to trial and assess the latest contact designs before they are commercially available.

By glazing the majority of our spectacle work at our own workshop (situated in our Holborn Practice), completed glasses can be processed, checked and collected on a same-day basis. Simple repairs and adjustments can be carried out at our Mason’s Avenue Practice.

We have a long standing professional relationship with many of the Companies in the square mile, who make use of our comprehensive VDU screening service for their staff.
