about belson & Sons

Now with five branches, Belson & Sons was founded by Leonard P. Belson in 1955 when he established the Docklands practice in London's East End after leaving the Royal Army Medical Corps. He went on to become one of the UK's leading practitioners, especially in the emerging field of contact lenses. He carried out research with some of the pioneering contact lens laboratories of the day, much of which was published in the professional journals.

The group is now operated by Leonard Belson's sons, Simon and Seth, and Simon's son Ethan. With the wisdom from the previous two generations and many years experience, our youngest member Ethan has been a great addition to the Belson & Sons team. Together they maintain the strong tradition of family eye care and quality products which have always made the practices so successful.

Great friendly staff, expert services, completely satisfied with the whole experience and it's nice not to be rushed in and out like the big chain stores. Highly recommended.
First class professional service, all the staff are very courteous and helpful. Would heartily recommend Belson & Sons to all who expect the best in expertise and care.
I have been using Belson & Sons for around 30+ years, the staff have always been polite, friendly and courteous; the opticians are very professional and thorough.
I wouldn't go anywhere else. I have been going to Belson & Sons opticians for 21 years and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to see an optician.
I have been using Belson & Sons Pitsea branch for years now and would not dream of changing. The examination is always thorough and the personal service is exceptional.
I was always made to feel welcome, and felt as if every attention was being given to the care of my eyesight, unlike my (limited) experiences with some of the national chain opticians.
