About Us

Established in 1994, we have now been looking after the eye health of the good people of Shipley for many years, and we are still welcoming new patients every week.

Ravi Naru, the practice owner has been qualified for over 30 years.

Optometry is very much in his genes; both his parents are optometrists (now happily retired) and his brother also has his own practice. Ravi works between this practice and the one that his father founded near the University.

His philosophy is very simple; provide a first class service, showcase the latest products and innovations and offer great value for money.

Contact Lenses

As an independent practice, we have access to all the major lens manufacturers and will be able to advise on the most suitable for you and your eyes. We can supply and fit contact lenses to address all corrections from straightforward monthly and daily lenses to more complex lenses such as multifocal lenses or those that correct for astigmatism.

Retinal imaging

We have a retinal camera in the practice which can be used to record any unusual findings and these can be forwarded to the hospital if necessary. Retinal imaging can also be used to monitor any issues that may be discovered.

Eye Examination

We allocate a full 30 minutes to all our eye examinations which allows us the time to determine an accurate prescription, assess the health of your eyes and address any concerns that you have.
At the conclusion of the exam we will recommend the most appropriate lenses for your needs and offer advice on any issues that you ask about.

Children's Vision Testing

We pride ourselves on being a child friendly practice, There are toys in the waiting room and our relaxed appointments give children time to make themselves comfortable. Eye tests for children are free and should they need glasses, these are also supplied free of charge from our large range of children’s frames.

What our clients say



What a revelation it was having my eyes tested, glasses made up and then expertly fitted at Ravi’s Opticians in Shipley. I do believe in supporting small local businesses and certainly this Optician is one that I will be returning to for many, many years to come.

Fantastic optician. My whole family goes. I would highly recommend them. Each pair of glasses my family has bought has been of excellent quality.
