Founded by L Gordon Flint in 1935, the practice was originally situated in Wolverhampton city centre, moving to Tettenhall Road in 1965. The other practices were opened in 1970 (Wednesfield) and 1980 (Codsall).


Following the retirement of Christopher Flint in 1998, the partnership of Phil Gilman, Dennis Rumble, Brenda Berg and Peter Rockett welcomed Edward Lyons in 2004; more recently Peter and Ed as the company directors from 2018 have enhanced the practice reputation still further and ensured that the Flint brand is a trusted name in the region.


We are proud to continue to offer a quality of service to patients that has been handed down for over 85 years through several generations of optometrists. You will find us offering the high skills and attention to detail that have developed and matured in that time  and that enable us to stand out from many other optical practices.


As a group of three ‘house’ practices we are not like other optometrists. Your care has always come first at Flint Optometry. Always mindful of our established reputation for high-quality expert care, our directors Peter Rockett and Ed Lyons are building on the work of their predecessors – most recently Dennis Rumble and Brenda Berg - to create an optometry destination based on thorough care and the needs of patients. Whether you are looking for your first pair of varifocals, contact lenses for partying, optical corrections for sport, have more complex needs like cataract or keratoconus or are concerned about your child’s myopia we are pleased to listen and offer our expertise.
