A clear choice

Eyewear specialists since 1973

We are an award-winning, independent, family-run opticians that has been serving the Birmingham community for over 50 years. Now run by brother and sister team, Paul Banks and Sarah Morgan, it was their father, David, who founded Banks Opticians in 1973. David instilled important values of looking after clients with his friendly, attentive and genuine nature. Since retiring in 2014, Sarah and Paul continue the traditional family legacy and build on the outstanding reputation their father had already built.

Service excellence

Seeing Better Together With Banks Opticians

We pride ourselves on going above and beyond for clients to provide the best service that an Optician can offer. First-class service makes your journey and experience here at Banks Opticians one we hope you enjoy. With the rise of multiples and conglomerates, all things independent are becoming a rarer breed in many types of business, service and retail areas. But who wants a world of rushed, busy, underwhelming service, feeling invisible, unheard and unacknowledged in the process?


We spend time with clients, build relationships, listen and deliver bespoke customer care with those traditional, good old-fashioned values.

Love your glasses

Making a statement with your eyewear

Everyone deserves to look and feel great in their glasses. Whilst there are a lot of same looking, uninspiring, poor-quality frames out there, if you’re looking for something more distinctive than what you find on the high street, then our eyewear is for you. We love helping you find the perfect pair of glasses and offer personalised styling consultations, allowing us to find out your exact needs and requirements.
