Alexander Opticians

East Grinstead Family Opticians

Our practice founders – Chris and Heather Marcou – first met at college in 1976, while studying for their Dispensing Optician qualifications. They both shared the dream of one day opening their own practice.


After qualifying Chris and Heather worked at various opticians’ practices in the South of England, before deciding to pursue their ambition. Their practice opened in 1987, and they named it Alexander Opticians after their son, who was five years old at the time.


Alex joined the practice in 2005, and is now a partner in the business – along with his parents and Dispensing Optician Helen Woods.


Since the practice opened, Chris and Heather have surrounded themselves with a team of like-minded, pro-active and helpful individuals, who all share their ambition of providing outstanding eye care. Many of our current team have now been with the practice for over 20 years, and contribute to our excellent longstanding reputation and relationships with our patients in East Grinstead.


When you first step into our practice, you will most likely be greeted by a member of our reception team – Sarah Stevens or Catherine Joslin-Smith. When it is time for your appointment, you’ll be professionally cared for by one of our fully qualified and highly experienced Optometrists: Christine Greenway, Prinal Patel, Rachel Jordan, Simon Corke or Dr John Butler.


Should you require new eye wear following your eye exam, you will be handed over to the care of Alex Marcou, Helen Woods, Peter Armstrong, Nathan Oldfield or Donna Pearce, who all comprise our Dispensing team, and are perfectly positioned to help you select the new eye wear that will be best for you. If you’d like contact lenses in addition to glasses either Sean, our qualified dedicated Contact Lens Optician, or one of our aforementioned optometrists will advise you and offer you a free trial.


Once you leave our practice with your new eye wear, our service doesn’t stop there. If your new specs ever need adjusting, call in any time. If a repair is necessary we can often see to that for you on-site in our own laboratory where Alex and Mark Softley, our technicians, will work their magic.
