Dorchester practice

About the Dorchester Practice

The practice was formerly known as IJ Brown Partnership and in 2016 saw the Robert Frith group purchase the IJ Brown branches. Friths have ensured to retain the distinct identity of each practice continuing the strong independent ethos of both groups focused on simply being the best we can be for our patients. At the same time the combination will keep us strong and competitive in an ever more challenging world.

What will patients notice? Hopefully absolutely nothing! We have the same wonderful service, attention to detail and heritage as before.

Our practice manager and dispensing optician Lisa works closely with our optometrist Gordon, and our trainee dispensing optician Andy, to provide the very best advice on your eye care and give information on the latest lens choice and frame designs. Jackie and Vanessa will be your first point of contact on reception offering a friendly smile in a relaxed environment. 

We are extremely excited to announce we will be offering hearing care services from 17th August 2018. We have teamed up with The Hearing Care Partnership (THCP) as they share our passion for personal service and clinical excellence.

Services will include:
