We are a team of highly qualified optometrists and your local optometrist in Hampshire and West Sussex. At Martin Steels, we pride ourselves with tailored ophthalmic care to your individual needs right from start. Since our inception in 1983, we have continuous support from our patients whom trust and value our professionalism to care for one of the most important senses, sight. We treat our patients the way we want to be treated ourselves.


We cover a wide range of ophthalmic services such as optometry, eyewear dispensing, contact lens fitting and aftercare and medical eye care. Our experienced optometrists have their special interests in eye care such as special medical contact lens and medical eye care including prescribing medicine to treat medical eye problems. We are different and are more than common 'high street opticians'.

We have a team of GOC-registered Dispensing Opticians instead of a sales person to dispense and fit your eyewear. They have undergone appropriate education and stringent exams, including practical, before they are qualified to dispense your eyewear. They are here to make sure your eyewear is dispensed accurately and professionally and give advise and opinions so that your eyewear suits your needs and fit well. We never presurize or push to make a quick sale. We can provide a consultation shall you want a new look or style. We are proud to offer you personalized service to make sure you are happy and proud with your purchase.
