About Wigram & Ware

Wigram & Ware is a fully independent Optical Practice with over 60 years experience in looking after the eye care needs of patients in the Bury St Edmunds area of Suffolk.

Who are Wigram and Ware?

Wigram and Ware are Optometrists and Contact Lens practitioners.  The practice is owned by Jennifer Morigi and Stuart Andrews and was founded in 1959.  It has operated in Bury St. Edmunds since its establishment in 1959 and from the Central Walk premises since 1974.

We are an independent private practice specialising in providing the highest quality eye care, spectacles, sun glasses and contact lenses to suit every need.

State of the art equipment

Wigram and Ware are one of the few opticians in town to have an Optopol OCT scanner. This instrument allow us to monitor your eye health in a much more comprehensive manner. It allows us to diagnose and deal with changes in the eye much earlier before they become a problem. More information on these instruments can be found here.

We have a Henson 8000 Field Analyser which is recognised as the industry gold standard tool for detecting and monitoring visual field defects.

Our Antares Corneal Topographer/Tear Film interpreter is essential for contact lens fitting and to identify and address dry eye conditions.

Our large, welcoming dispensing area shows off our great range of spectacle frames. Under the watchful eye of Jennifer and Tracey, we carefully select interesting and high quality frames from around the world. We offer a genuine bespoke service to ensure a perfect frame design and fit and all dispensing is undertaken by fully qualified staff. For further information about our range of frames click here.

We want to supply you with the best spectacle lenses for your needs. We supply all types of spectacle lenses from simple single vision to the most technologically advanced varifocals. We can tailor your varifocal lenses to provide the perfect ratio of distance and close vision capability to suit your specific requirements using the Hoya ID Mystyle lens. More information on our spectacle lenses can be found here.

Eye examinations and contact lenses

We have three consulting rooms, one of which is on the ground floor. Each consulting room in the practice has a full compliment of equipment for eye examinations and the fitting of contact lenses.

Our standard eye test is a fully comprehensive 1 hours examination, conducted entirely by our Opticians who are qualified professionals and registered with the General Optical Council. We regularly undertake continued education in all fields of Optics. We attend seminars all over the country and receive updates on the latest products and research every week. Please click here for further information on our eye examinations.

Our opticians are members of the British Contact Lens Association. Wigram and Ware is an Acuvue Centre of Excellence and we attend conferences and training days to learn about the latest contact lens products and research. We are proud that our independence and skill in fitting contact lenses allow us to provide a fully comprehensive range of contact lenses from all manufacturers. More information on contact lenses can be found by clicking here.


We pride ourselves in our total independence as an optical practice, as this gives us complete freedom to adopt whatever technological advances will be of benefit to our patients. This professional freedom allows us to choose the very best optical suppliers, products and equipment.

Wigram and Ware will continue to invest in new technology and science to bring our customers a highly professional approach to eye care.

Being able to give our patients the best advice and the best product that is available in the world today, is a crucial and exciting aspect of our work.
