Celebrating a century of innovation and imagination, Curry & Paxton represents British eyewear at its elegant, iconic best. The company was founded as a manufacturer of Opthalmic instruments before contributing to the second world war effort and became one of the early producers of spectacles for the National Health Service. Curry & Paxton has pioneered at every stage of its growth.

Manufacturing a range of opticals from Opera glasses, binoculars and motoring shades to ski goggles and bespoke tortoiseshell frames, Curry & Paxton eyewear- formerly medicinal and functional- became covetable by those at the forefront of British style. HRH the Duke of Windsor even bestowed a Royal Warrant on his favoured maker of stylish specs.

The onset of the swinging sixties brought Curry & Paxton to the silver screen; cementing its reputation as the best in the optical business when worn by Michael Caine: arguably one of the most famous bespectacled faces of the modern era.

Curry & Paxton is an icon of the past and today this heritage is considered in every frame, resulting in a collection of modern classics.
