About Enderbys

Enderbys is a family run independent opticians which has been open in Boston, Lincolnshire since 1907.

Founded by George Enderby, Enderbys was 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 he maintained an excellent level of professional care until his retirement. 

John Enderby, George's son, followed in his father's footsteps. 

John developed a glazing facility within the practice, the first in Boston, which allowed the Enderbys technicians to hand finish lenses on site and to provide a same day service. 

Philip Enderby was the next to join the family practice in 1967, working along side his father John. He was one of the first graduates in Europe to obtain a Degree in Optometry. 

Philip introduced contact lens fitting to the town and is one of the few opticians in the area to be awarded the DCLP (Diploma in Contact Lens Practice). His expertise has continued in this field and his knowledge and experience is constantly sought. 

Philip has supervised many optometry graduates during their pre-registration years and has helped prepare them for their professional examinations. He continues in practice with his wife Deborah, the Practice Manager. 

Deborah joined the practice in 1993 and has overseen the complete modernisation of the practice image. Her new style for the practice interior and her introduction of the brands and designer frames that we promote, alongside the clinical services on offer ensure that Enderbys continues confidently into the future. 

Lisa Hardy, Philip and Deborah's daughter, joined the practice in 1994. She 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. 

In 2008, Ben Enderby, Philip and Deborah's son joined the practice. Working alongside Deborah as a practice manager he has moved Enderbys into the digital age. All systems have been computerised allowing seamless transferral of information throughout the practice. Ben has designed the company website and is responsible for marketing and social media to help Enderbys reach a wide audience.
