About us

We first opened our doors in Cheriton Place 25 years ago in 1988. The practice outgrew the original premises. A larger building became available across the road and this has been the home of Chris Adams Opticians of Folkestone ever since. The practice is wheelchair friendly and close to the local shopping centre and transport facilities.
We have two consulting rooms and uniquely for Folkestone, a workshop on the premises. 99% of spectacles are made within the practice which significantly reduces the time it takes to supply them to you.

When you purchase a new pair of specs from us you don’t see all that is included with your new specs.
