Julian Davies Opticians was founded in 1992 When qualified Ophthalmic Optician (Optometrist), Dispensing Optician and contact lens specialist Julian Davies opened his first practice in the Pillgwenlly area of Newport.

In the years that followed, Julian built up a large and loyal patient base built on the foundations of a great customer service and clinical excellence. In 1995 a long established practice in Usk was taken over, followed by the acquisition of our St Mellons practice in 1998.

In 2014 Julian took on an optometrist partner, Chris Tannorella and at the end of 2015 Julian decided that the time was right to hang up his ophthalmoscope and retire. Even though Julian has now retired, the principals of great customer service and clinical excellence that he championed when he opened his first practice have been continued to this day and Julian Davies Opticians are now respected members of the healthcare providers in the communities which they serve.

The group has gone from strength to strength in recent years, providing enhanced shared care glaucoma services in cardiff and Newport, as well as aquiring a fourth practice at the end of 2019 in Llandaff.

As an independently owned group we have the flexibility to offer the best products available to you from all different manufacturers as well as the ability to source a wide range of products requested which we don’t currently have in stock.

We look forward to seeing you at your next appointment.

Chris and the team
