Expert eye care since 1986

Bater & Stout Opticians has been the first port of call for patients from Swansea, Neath, Morriston, Swansea Valley, Pontardawe and Gower since we opened as Bater Opticians in 1986. Our dedication to eye health and the latest innovations in eye care has seen us establish an enviable reputation as one of South Wales' leading and most respected optometrists.

Utilising the latest technologies and being home to Swansea's only Kodak Lens Vision Centre, our experienced team of optometrists, dispensing opticians, lens technicians, clinical assistants and support staff provide an outstanding professional service to patients of all ages.

Here at Bater & Stout, we offer a wide range of services, including eye examinations, hearing tests, frames and contact lenses.

Swansea's trusted and respected local opticians

At Bater & Stout, we provide the latest collections for ladies, men, teens and children, so you can be certain that you will find spectacles that look great and fit well.

Our independence as a leading Swansea optician gives us the freedom to advise on what suits your personal needs. As a result, you are prescribed spectacles only when you need them, and with lenses and frames to suit your budget and requirements.

Buying your spectacles following your most recent eye examination couldn't be easier with Bater & Stout Opticians. Our range includes a number of styles, from classic and elegant to bold and modern. We also add new styles to our collection on a regular basis so we can continue to offer the very best spectacles to patients across Swansea, Neath, Morriston, Swansea Valley, Pontardawe and Gower.

Purchasing UV protective sunglasses

We also stock an excellent range of Ray Ban sunglasses, along with other designer brands including Guess, and specially priced prescription sunglasses available as single-vision, bifocal or varifocal.

Your need for spectacles is no barrier to having stylish, modern sunglasses with lenses made to your exact prescription. We can make specially curved lenses to suit the shape of the popular wraparound styles, whilst basic dark-tinted, superb polarised or photochromic lenses are also available.

We can also use thinner tinted lens materials, which are advisable if your prescription is stronger than average.
