We’re one of a group of six independent opticians – offering excellent optical care to southeast London communities for more than 100 years.


We believe that our highly professional service and friendly expertise, together with our extensive and exciting range of frames and contact lenses at fair prices, add up to great value. We hope you will agree!


The key to good vision is a regular eye examination. If you haven’t had one in the last two years, we recommend you book one – by either clicking here or checking out one of our sister branches (via the links at the bottom of this page) which might be even more convenient.

What our customers say

“The staff at R F Linklater opticians in Welling are always very efficient but I have to commend the staff that I have been seeing over the past few years as being the best ever. Always extremely polite, helpful and always willing to go the extra mile whenever necessary.”
