About Us

Duffy Optometrists Ltd is a long-standing, family owned company with practices in Mansfield, Newark, and Wollaton. We at Duffy’s have built up a reputation for providing individual style and optical expertise in a friendly atmosphere with a personal service tailored to individual patient needs. Our practices are equipped to an extremely high standard to provide both general and specialist optometric services. John and Maggie Duffy both qualified as optometrists from London’s City University in 1980 and took over a long established practice in Mansfield in 1986. Expansion to Wollaton occurred in 1995, and to the Newark practice in January 2004.

Both John and Maggie work within the three practices with a team of colleagues, each with their own individual interests including diabetic retinopathy screening, vision and learning, dry eye treatment, and pre-school children.

In 2013 their son Robert also joined the team with his experience in optical manufacturing to open up an in-house Glazing Laboratory, which allows us to offer a quicker service as well as a tighter control on accuracy and quality of lenses.

We promote the highest standards of clinical eye care and quality eye wear.
