Who is Ollie Quinn?

We do it all at OQ. (And we’re very humble about it.) But seriously, when it comes to your eyewear needs, we know how to fill ‘em.

We’re your friendly neighbourhood optical, featuring fashionable frame stylists and eye health specialists. Oh, and we do it all at one fair, flat price. Designed in-house with quality in mind, our handcrafted frames house locally cut lenses and feature thoughtfully sourced materials. All glasses start at just £115, including single-vision prescription lenses, anti-scratch, and anti-glare coatings.

Our team is here to get your eyes in check and your style set in no time. Anytime you walk into an Ollie Quinn boutique, you’ll experience a personalized eye care consultation and an all-around great time with our friendly crew. Our goal is to help each and every one of our customers create their own vision - whether that be with a new pair of glasses or a session in one of our boutique’s creative co-working spaces.

Our stores are more than retail spaces - they’re places for community and collaboration, inclusive spaces where freelancers, artists, entrepreneurs, and creatives can come together to share ideas, learn from one another and get stuff done.
