Our Location

Sask Optics are pleased to be able to offer high-quality eye care for patients in the Leicester area and even those from further afield. We have two practices in the city – with one in Queens Road and one on Welford Road. We are delighted to be able to run two practices in order to meet the requirements of our patients.

Our Queens Road practice is just under a mile away from the Welford Road practice and, having been open for a longer time, has established a positive reputation within the area and has a strong base of loyal patients. This practice continues to attract new patients on an ongoing basis. Queens road is famous for its little cafes so whilst you are here you can enjoy a hot drink and something delicious to eat. If driving to this practice, you will be able to find us most easily by turning on to Queens Road via Clarendon Park Road or Victoria Park Road.

Our other practice on Welford Road is located diagonally opposite to the police station and has usually has parking available outside.

We aim to be as flexible as possible and operate two practices in order to meet the demand of the patients in our area. Please contact us on 0116 2448244 for Queens Road, 0116 2705885 for Welford road, email us at shockat@saskoptics.com, or use the function on the website in order to book an appointment. We look forward to seeing you soon.
