Business Description

Opticians, contact lenses, sunglasses and eye care. Haslingden, Rawtenstall, Rossendale, Lancashire.

David Gould Opticians have two optical practices in the Rossendale Valley, located on Deardengate, Haslingden and Bank Street, Rawtenstall.

Founded in 2003, David Gould Opticians work with experienced, qualified independent optometrists using some of the latest examination equipment to provide a comprehensive eye care service.

David and the trained support staff are on hand to offer first-rate advice on frames and lenses to ensure you have the information to make the correct choice of eyewear for your needs.

The latest digital contact lens equipment is used to continue to provide what has become the largest contact lens service in the area. All types of contact lenses, including disposables, multifocals, continuous wear, hybrids, Rigid Gas Permeables and toric lenses for astigmatism, are supplied.

David Gould Opticians hold the status of Acuvue Centre of Excellence, are one of Cibavision's Premium Independent Practices, and are members of Coopervision's Visionary Club. This means that we often have access to new products before they are generally available. We have even carried out clinical research studies on new contact lens products yet to hit the market.

We do not use "own brand" products as we believe this restricts choice and we want our clients to be able to choose from the full selection of products available.

Our Dry Eye Assessments were first introduced in January 2012 and have proved very popular and attracted many new clients to the practice. We are able to carry out various simple tests to determine the nature of the problem and recommend appropriate treatment. Most drops only treat symptoms - we believe that finding the cause of the problem and working on a solution is a far better approach.

Many people we have seen have been using the same treatments for many years and have never been introduced to some of the latest products and methods. Our digital slit lamp microscope allows us to show clients what we can see and helps in gaining a better understanding of what's happening. 

My Recommendations

Went to see David today for some contact lenses. I was very impressed with the level of service and care from David and his team. The difference between a large national chain-store and the personal service of a local business is very apparent. Thanks David and team for such wonderful service.

from James Jeremiah-Goulding

What a friendly team and a great service, backed up with industry leading technology (love the camera that lets me see what’s going on in my eyes)

No rush in selecting new frames and polite but honest feedback in finding the perfect pair.

Whilst not a contact lense user, David is a specialist in this field, focusing on child eye health. His passion for helping children and improving their sight shines through.

Would highly recommend
