“At Scher & Lasky Opticians you will receive a personal and bespoke service, with honest and professional advice tailored to your individual needs. Almost 30 years of success can be attributed to our loyal client base, but we always look forward to seeing new faces walk through the door!”

                                                                                    Ralph Lasky, Practice Manager

Ralph Lasky and Russell Scher first established the business in 1990, taking over a small practice from a retiring Optician. Following a successful six years, in 1996 the team moved to a bigger location – our current address – to accommodate a rapidly growing client base.

Our practice, by Woodford Central Line tube station, has been our home for almost 30 years, serving the communities of Woodford, South Woodford, Buckhurst Hill and Chigwell. In that time our client database has grown dramatically to over 10,000 clients – a statistic that we feel reflects the professional and friendly service that we offer.

Today, Ralph remains a partner and manager of Scher & Lasky Opticians; you’ll often see him around the practice. His daughter Jo Stanley FBDO, is a qualified Dispensing Optician who can advise patients on the best optical solutions, based on each individual client’s visual requirements. Together Ralph and Jo ensure that the shelves are always stocked with the latest styles, and they keep up to date with all the latest advances in lens technologies, to ensure that clients leave having had the best possible service.

Our Optometrists (Ophthalmic Opticians) each have extensive experience in their field, allowing them to provide sound advice on anything eye-related. Simone Viniker (BSc Hons FCOptom) has been with the practice since it opened, and Philip Read joined the team in 1996 following our premises relocation. Both are fully qualified in all aspects of Optometry, as well as dyslexia assessments and retinal and diabetic screening.

When you’re looking for a new Optician, look no further than Scher & Lasky Opticians. You can expect a warm and welcoming environment, an excellent selection of frames, lenses and sunglasses and most importantly, an unrivalled level of service. Every member of our team prides themselves on their ability to be able to offer you expert and honest advice, ensuring that you look and feel great in your new eyewear.
