Build - How to Grow Your Opticians Practice

There are 2 ways to grow your Opticians practice and, with over 30 years experience in the Optical world, we are uniquely placed to help with both.

1 Growing your practice organically

No two independent optical practices are the same; especially with the huge variance between public healthcare provision in the areas we serve : England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland.

For this reason, our services are tailored to suit the specific needs of each client in terms of both region, local demographic, and market positioning.  

Our approach starts by identifying your current most profitable activities. This crucial piece of front-end diagnostic work ensure that our efforts are focused on growth in the optimal areas that will benefit your bottom line.  

Myers La Roche ongoing investment in research and development ensures that we remain on the cutting edge, whether it is: - 

  • Providing guidance on best practice in terms of your business model (traditional, hybrid or private only practices.)  
  • Identifying sector specific Megatrends and helping our clients to select the right strategy to navigate them safely and benefit from them. 


  • Monitoring and helping our clients (when appropriate) to benefit from early adoption of emerging trends and technologies like AI and pigment screeners that will provide a differentiation point

2 Growing your optical business (or independent group) via a merger or acquisition

The phrase mergers and acquisitions sounds very corporate and perhaps at face value, may seem a little abstract and alien for many practice owners. However, if you take the time to look beyond the fancy terminology and understand the reality of what it actually means, it is an excellent growth strategy; and one that is entirely relevant to the owners of independent practice both big AND small.  

At its most basic level it may simply be the purchase of record cards from a local independent. Whilst at the other end of the spectrum, it may be much more ambitious and targeted strategic exercise.  

Whatever your knowledge level, business scale and personal ambitions, we offer a range of services to help you grow your business via acquisition. Get in touch with the team on 0161 929 8389 or by email for a confidential chat to discuss your next steps
