Formerly H R Breakspear Optometry

Our name has changed, but we haven't! Serving people of Muswell Hill North London since 1880's. 
'Your Vision, Our Priority'


We are the longest serving Opticians in Muswell Hill, serving the people of London since the 1880s. That’s what makes us unique!

At The Eyes on Broadway Optometry (formerly H R Breakspear Optometry), we pride ourselves on good old fashioned values. Our ‘Antique Optometry’ approach is born out of the demand for a thorough and expert service for you and your family’s vision and eye health needs. Anyone you will see when you walk through our doors is fully qualified in Optics as well as having a plethora of experience.


Our appointment only system enables us to give you as a patient, all of the time and attention you may require and experience a personalised, and quality service from our team.


We are family run, and have been since the 1880’s.
