Premium quality eye-care

Our optometrists and opticians are trained to the highest standards, to ensure your eyes receive the best attention possible.

Reassuring experienced

Established since 1976, Ben Mirkin has been looking after the eyes of thousands of people in North London for decades. We’re here because people can literally ‘see the difference’.

Superb Designer Frame Collections

Come in-store, and you’ll see the largest selection of designer frames in North London – everything from Cartier, Fred to Tom Ford to Oliver Peoples to Lindberg and Tom Davies.

Passionate Expert Team

Our staff of over 10 is on hand to help you with all of your eye-care needs. We don’t do the ‘hard sell’ so often found in high street opticians these days.

Always Independent

When it comes to your eyes, you should always be advised on what is best, NOT on what the head of the company wants you to buy! As independent practitioners, unlike the main chain-store opticians, we are not tied to any supplier. Hence, we will always offer our patients the right frame, lenses or other products – specifically for their individual needs and requirements.

Expert Craftsmanship

Making beautiful glasses is an art perfected by few. At Ben Mirkin, we pay extreme attention to detail when it comes to how your glasses and sunglasses look. Only the best glasses technicians are used to make our patient’s glasses ensuring a superb finish every time. If it’s not good enough, we simply do it again until it is.
