About us

For many in York, Coverdales Opticians is a household name and generations have had their eyes cared for by us.

Coverdales is one of York's few remaining independent Optometrists. We've been in the City of York for over 150 years - starting as a pharmacy in Gillygate before moving to Parliament Street where the Coverdale family had a pharmacy, dentist, optical and photographic department. Coverdales then relocated to 53 Walmgate in 1990.

We are committed to service and will always go the extra mile to suit your special requirements - taking time to listen to your visual problems and providing the very best solutions.

We recognise that your sight is possibly the most precious gift you have - Entrust its care to us!
