About Enderbys of Boston
We are proud to have offered excellence in eyecare since 1907
Enderbys is a family run independent opticians which have been providing quality eyecare in Boston, Lincolnshire since 1907.
Founded by George Enderby, Enderbys was once one of the only opticians in Boston and the surrounding area. From the very beginning, George wanted to provide the best eye care possible to all of his patients. He was one of the first opticians in the country to receive a formal qualification and with a background in pharmacy.
Later generations followed in George's footsteps including his son, John, who went on to develop a glazing facility within the practice, the first of its kind in Boston. Next was John's son, Philip who joined the family practice in 1967, working alongside his father. He was one of the first graduates in Europe to obtain a Degree in Optometry and introduced contact lens fitting to the town.
Philip's wife, Deborah, joined the practice in 1993 and oversaw the modernisation of the practice image including a brand new interior and the introduction of designer frames.
Their daughter, Lisa, qualified as a Dispensing Optician in 1997, the first in the Enderby line to do so, and is the senior Dispensing Optician working at Enderbys today.
