About Us

Professional Service

Our optometrists will provide a comprehensive eye exam to assess visual performance and eye health.

Our practices are equipped with some of the latest state-of-the-art technology including fundus imaging and OCT scanning to detect and monitor visual abnormalities.

We provide information and advice on lifestyle choices, diet, ophthalmic and contact lenses to provide comfortable accurate vision and to help maintain healthy eyes. We recommend appointments for both frame selection and final fitting to ensure both a stylish cosmetic result and an accurate and comfortable fit.

Our History

Ellis and Killpartrick was founded by Bradford University optometry graduates Brian Ellis and Michael Killpartrick in 1979. We are now one of the leading independent opticians in the South West, with over 22,000 registered patients across three practices.

Our original practice in Bath has a 40-year reputation for excellent service and a wide and distinctive range of eyewear. Continuing our success, a second practice was opened in Cheltenham in 1998, and in 2021, a third practice opened in Tetbury in 2019.

We all have our own distinctive ideas and different requirements for spectacles, sunglasses, and contact lenses. Ellis and Killpartrick value a thorough examination and a close relationship with our patients in order to provide the best possible advice to meet all individual visual needs.

Enjoy looking at our website. We hope to have the pleasure of seeing you soon.
