Castle Opticians

4 Eastwood Rd,

Castle Opticians Rayleigh



Our practices are open under the current tier 4 restrictions to provide routine eyecare (although some NHS services may be restricted). However in order to maintain Covid security, before visiting the practice please call 01268 774109 to arrange an appointment. 


The practice is the longest established in Rayleigh having served Rayleigh patients for over 50 years, and went through a comprehensive refurbishment 3 years ago. Our bright newly equipped practice continues to offer a full private and NHS service, regular contact lens clinics and one of the widest ranges of spectacle frames available in Essex.

Andrew Ellacott and Tim Turpin are our resident Optometrists and the practice is managed by Dispensing Optician Stephen Castle who has over 25 years experience in Optics. Our senior receptionist Karen Viner will be happy to arrange an appointment at a time that is convenient for you.

The practice has a digital fundus camera and a state of the art Thompson Test Chart. We also offer Optical coherence tomography (OCT) as an extra part of the eye examination. This advanced light based instrument enables us to examine a cross section of the retina at the back of the eye which can help us to detect glaucoma and retinal diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic eye disease.

Our Rayleigh practice is the main stockist of Oakley, Tom Ford and Rayban eyewear in the town and we also carry the stunning Tiffany, Bulgari, Gucci, Murano and Michael Kors ranges for ladies.
