About Us

"We are thrilled to become part of the Bayfields group. We are undoubtedly passionate about eye care. We believe in unique solutions for every eye care client delivered by obsessively great customer service"

Practice Manager - Umar Shah

Former Partner Claire Wren.
‘I began working in the Fleet practice in 1978 under the guidance of the late and well respected John Westbrook. I have enjoyed and valued every minute since, as a student, employee and ultimately partner. Over the years the practice has been very lucky to have had enormous support from local people who have clearly valued the personal touch. The continuity and expertise of all the staff has been our hallmark and I am confident that the Bayfields group will continue and enhance our service. I look forward to playing my part and wish Safa every success in her new role.’

The Fleet practice is one of the newest editions to the Bayfields Group and currently stands as the only practice to be located in the stunning, southern county of Hampshire.

First founded in 1938 by industry leading Optometrist, John Harwood, the Fleet practice is renowned for delivering the very best optical expertise. In addition to Eye Examinations, the practice team are also qualified  to offer specialist eye care including colour overlay assessments and OCT. Situated at the heart of the beautiful Fleet Road, the practice offers the perfect combination of a beautiful location and accessibility.
