About us

SightDirect is an independent optical company located in Chester-le-Street and Low Fell in the North East of England.

The Chester-le-Street branch was established in September 2003. Having an optical laboratory means we are able to manufacture our own high-quality spectacles and sell them for a significantly lower price than those on the high street.

The Low Fell branch was opened in July 2008 to provide a full and first-class eye examination service.

SightDirect staff will constantly provide a warm welcome. Our friendly, caring team are always happy and willing to help, and we would like you to feel happy and relaxed while choosing your new spectacles.
