Pritchard Cowburn Opticians – About Us

The Practice

Situated in the centre of the market town of Cardigan, Optegydd Prichard-Cowburn Opticians is a bilingual speaking optical practice offering a high quality service that is becoming hard to find. Founded in 1961 by Mr Dewi Jones the practice has developed considerably since the Pritchard – Cowburn partnership was established. A These include a new modern on site laboratory with the latest lens making technology, normally only associated with the large national opticians. Our new field-screening technology that is used by most eye hospitals will offer you a high quality eye examination. Constant investment is required to meet our patients expectations of high standards of health care, including OCT detailed eye scans, Essilor AVA lens technology with digital eye examinations and bespoke spectacle lenses designed to meet your needs.

We pride ourselves in offering a caring and professional service to all our customers. Our trained staff are friendly and helpful and will assist with any questions about your eye care. It is this commitment to the patient that has made Pritchard-Cowburn so popular for local people and regular visitors to Wales.

The progress that has come through hard work has been visible with the opening of a practice in Narberth.

Our Vision

“To provide a quality eye care service by combining our extensive experience with the latest optical technology”



Lyndon Pritchard

After leaving Fishguard school Lyndon Pritchard graduated in optometry from Aston University in 1989. During the following pre-registration year he gained experience practicing in Cardiff at the Health Hospital and University of Wales. He became a partner for Haine & Smith in Wiltshire before moving back to Pembrokeshire in 1997. Having worked as a locum for three years, the opportunity to establish a leading practice with Jeff arose in 2000.

Jeff Cowburn

Originally from the North East of England, Jeff Cowburn has many years experience and a wealth of knowledge on the technical side of optics. He bought the practice back in 1989 from Mr Jones and began laying the foundations for a new modern practice, which today far exceeds most people’s expectations of a rural optical practice.
