A complete visionary experience in Lincoln

Where excellence in optometry meets award-winning dispensing.

Nestled in the heart of the city of Lincoln, Martin Smith Opticians has become synonymous with excellence in eye care, earning its place as a multi-award-winning practice. With a total of seven national UK awards including Optometrist of the Year, Technology Practice of the Year, and Dispensing Optician of the Year, the practice continues to redefine the standards of comprehensive eye care.

In December 2023, the practice won the coveted title of UK Optometrist of the Year, a testament to the unparalleled commitment and expertise of the practice’s founder, Dr. Martin Smith BSc DOptom DipTp(IP) Higher Cert Glauc MCOptom. With a keen eye for detail and a passion for delivering exceptional eye care services, Dr. Martin Smith has set a standard that has earned national recognition.

One of the standout features that sets Martin Smith Opticians apart is its commitment to staying at the forefront of technological innovation. The practice was honoured with the title of UK Technology Practice of the Year in 2021, a reflection of its dedication to utilising cutting-edge tools and techniques to enhance patient care.

The practice’s comprehensive eye examination is unrivalled, offering an array of advanced technologies to ensure a thorough assessment. The eye examination uses Paskal 3D Eye testing which is a highly accurate, more comfortable and modern system allowing both eyes to be kept open, Zeiss Cirrus for high-resolution retinal imaging, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), to DNEye technology for precise refraction measurements. The Martin Smith Opticians team of Martin, Sue, Mandy, Josh and Joana leave no stone unturned when it comes to the health of your eyes.

Martin Smith Opticians’ commitment to excellence extends beyond cutting-edge optometry; it includes a dedication to the art and science of dispensing. Dr. Martin Smith sheds light on the unique approach taken within the practice to ensure personalised patient care.

“Our technology ensures that our patient is offered the best diagnostic eye examination available anywhere in the UK,” says Dr. Smith.

“We use the latest technology and I allocate 50 minutes for our eye examination which means I can investigate, diagnose and treat many eye problems in the examination. We understand that our patients lead diverse lives and their visual needs extend beyond routine eye examinations. Many of us spend more time on computers, or face challenges like night driving and headlight glare.

“Our dispensing room is equipped with advanced technology to cater to these specific needs, ensuring that every patient receives customised lenses in the right frame for outstanding results.”

With the increasing reliance on technology in our daily lives, Martin Smith Opticians is at the forefront of monitoring lens advances. Sue Edwards, Practice Manager, elaborates on the quality of bespoke lens designs offered, stating: “Our patients’ needs come first and we always select the most suitable lens for each individual. Currently, biometric lenses from Rodenstock are among the most advanced lenses available.

“Our DNEye Scanner calculates several thousand data points and measurements for each eye, which are then incorporated directly into the lenses, enabling our patient to have exceptional vision.”

The stunning reception area at Martin Smith Opticians boasts an extensive collection of independent frame styles, offering patients a range of choices to suit their individual tastes. From the vibrant and stylish designs of Etnia Barcelona to the elegant titanium frames of Blackfin from the Dolomites, and the beautiful Silhouette rimless designs, the practice ensures that each frame is not just a functional accessory but a statement of personal style.

Highlighting the practice’s commitment to precision, the private dispensing room houses the Rodenstock ImpressionIST 4 3D video measuring system, where clients experience a new dimension in precision dispensing. A quick look into the mirror captures a three-dimensional image, providing all the individual measurements needed for bespoke lenses. As Sue explains, “it’s accurate, fun, and our patients can’t believe the level of detail it captures.”

Martin Smith Opticians continues to be a beacon of excellence in Lincoln not only for its award-winning eye care but also for its unparalleled commitment to dispensing excellence. Step into a world where cutting-edge technology meets personalised care, and where the pursuit of exceptional vision is a journey guided by expertise, innovation, and a genuine passion for the well-being of every patient.
