Christopher Young Opticians has been owned by Christopher Young, qualified optometrist, since 1986, solidifying their family-oriented philosophy. At Christopher Young they believe that every patient should be treated with the same level of care as you would treat a close family member, they understand the importance of a personal connection with their patients and understand that this is what helps them to tailor their services to their patient’s needs.

They pride themselves not only on their quality of care they provide but also on their wide choice of frames, allowing their patients to choose something that really appeals to them. Offering both glasses and contact lenses Christopher Young Opticians have something for everyone no matter your prescription. Partnering with THCP means not only do they provide high-quality eye care but high-quality hearing care too.

Cathy commented on why she chose to join THCP:

“I’m passionate about providing the best possible solutions and support for those with hearing loss. Working at The Hearing Care Partnership means I have the time to spend with each patient, not only enabling me to carry out thorough clinical testing but also to match the most suitable state-of-the-art hearing aids in line with lifestyle and personal preferences. It doesn’t stop there – I believe that ongoing care and support is essential to ensure that each patient has a personal and tailor-made aftercare service, which will continue to improve their quality of life.”

Cathy is very committed to raising awareness on the impact hearing loss can have on an individual, she also commented on her “special interest in links between untreated hearing loss and an increase in the risk of falls and developing dementia.”

With the family-oriented values of the Christopher Young practice and THCP, we will be able to provide personal eye and hearing care to our patients and offer more services to the public. We are excited for this partnership and look forward to providing an integrated hearing and optical service.
