About Us

Farouk Hossen (Opticians) Ltd was incorporated in July 1972.

Mr. Farouk Hossen trained at the City in London and qualified as optician in 1967. He did his post graduate studies in Contact Lenses and worked at Moorfields Eye Hospital under Professor Montague Ruben.

He also had the opportunity to work at E. B. Mayorwitz, at 1A Old Bond Street, where he set up the Contact Lens Department. He opened his first practice on the 1st of July 1972.

Our offices are designed in order to effectively fulfil the requirements of all tastes. They reflect this obsession for details, reverberating concepts like modernism and refinement. The work equipment, glasses and frames are thus all the latest obtainable on the market. Services and consultations are entirely computerised. From traditional consultation methods, we have moved on to hi-tech methods.

The ozone layer protects any form of life existing on earth against excessive exposure to ultraviolet sunrays (UVR).

A beautiful pair of glasses will not necessarily suit you well. These are essential factors to consider when choosing your glasses: the shape and size of your face, your eye and hair colour, your hair style and your eyebrow. These will also determine the material and the type of bridge that would be most appropriate for your frames.
