Old Town Eyecare was established in 1994 in Wood Street, Old Town. Since 2013 we have been at our brand new custom fitted practice at the top of Victoria Road. At Old Town Eyecare we strive to provide the best service possible. We are a small close-knit team who enjoy what we do. Unlike some multiple opticians where you may feel like you are on a conveyor belt, we like to treat each patient as an individual. Our friendly team will make you feel at home in our relaxed, pleasant atmosphere.
We are always focusing on ways to develop our service including investing in new equipment and sourcing the best quality eyewear and lenses.

Meet the team
Mitch Patel BSc (Hons) MCOptom- Principle Optometrist
Mitch qualified in 2003 from Cardiff University.
Before working in Old Town Eyecare he worked for several local opticians as a locum optometrist. This has given him a broad range of experiences that he utilises to provide a great service to all the patients that he sees. As well as eye examinations, Mitch also looks after the contact lens side of the practice.
His passion is learning about the latest innovations in the industry so that our patients can benefit from the best products available on the market.
