About Us

Buckingham Opticians is an independent local optometrists practice dedicated to providing excellence in eyecare for both spectacle and contact lens wearers.

Established in the local area for over 30 years, the practice offers expert, individual eyecare for the whole family. As a family run practice, we believe our patients deserve quality individual care and advice as well as a courteous, efficient, personal service. We work closely with local NHS practitioners and the Yorkshire Eye Hospital to ensure you receive appropriate medical treatment when necessary.

In addition to clinical optometry, Dr Buckingham taught in a leading university Optometry department for over 20 years. In that time he lectured extensively at a senior level both in this country and abroad, and authored a number of scientific papers and textbooks. He was editor-in-chief of the scientific journal Contact Lens and Anterior Eye, and was awarded life-membership of the British Contact Lens Association (BCLA) for his contribution to contact lens practice in the UK.

Dr Buckingham enjoys all aspects of optometric practice and has a particular interest in diseases of the eye, contact lenses and children's vision.
