About us

A family run business

When you become a patient of this practice, the health of your eyes is our first concern.

Just a few minutes walk from Regent’s Park and Harley St, here at Burnett Hodd & Tam Optometry, we offer a truly personal approach to eye care. 

The practice is world famous for being able to help those with the most complex eye conditions. Our specialist optometrists and dispensing opticians ensure that our knowledge and technology is kept up-to-date, maintaining our position as one of the foremost practices in the country.

We take the opportunity to attend either as delegates or speakers to the most important international conferences and optical shows. We seek out the best possible products for our patients from all over the world and, because of our reputation, new products and materials are frequently made available to us before they are available to other practices.

The History of Burnett Hodd

The practice has over 100 years of history, with George William Hodd opening his first practice in 1905 in Moorgate. Since then, the business has been kept in the family, yet is constantly evolving as new technology and innovations emerge within eye care.

The professionalism at this practice is beyond anything I have experienced before.


Amazing care, best eye exam I have had. The choice of spectacles frames and their advice was five stars.


The staff at Burnett Hodd and Tam are friendly, welcoming and highly professional, providing excellent service with state of the art equipment.


You can be confident that you won’t get ‘upsold’ at Burnett Hodd and Tam– after 45 minutes of various tests I was told that I didn’t need glasses – very refreshing!


Pleasant, friendly, and reassuringly professional. I would recommend Burnett Hodd and Tam to all my friends and family.

Burnett Hodd and Tam have a very good range of frames and I'm delighted with the frames I've chosen along with the varifocal lenses they recommended.
