Welcome to our practice.

Aves Optometrists is a busy practice set in the town of Ware, Hertfordshire. The business was established in 1947 and since then has been responsible for caring for the eye-sight of many of the local residents and those in the surrounding area.

We are regularly recommended by the local GP surgeries and have close links with the local hospitals and their eye departments.

Our philosophy is that we aim to provide the highest standard of eye care with affordable eye wear to suit all budgets.

Many people in the UK are at risk of blindness due to neglecting their eyes and not attending for regular check ups and eye tests with their Optometrist. We run an excellent reminder system that will inform you when you are next due an appointment so that you can book a time that suits you.

At  Aves, we provide a friendly caring service in a calm and relaxed environment.
