Meet Our Team

Meet Our
Silver & Rose Team

Silver & Rose Opticians has been established in Formby since 1984. It was taken over in 1996 by its current owner, Mr Keith Burns. Since then the Practice has gone from strength to strength.

We pride ourselves in being a community-based, wholly independent Opticians. This is reflected in our client base as we see a lot of familiar faces year on year, together with a host of new customers and people who want a more personal, individual service and have defected from the large chain opticians.

With ongoing investment in state-of-the-art examination equipment and our hands-on one-to-one policy, we like to think that at Silver & Rose we provide a complete Ophthalmic service.
