about belson & Sons

Now with five branches, Belson & Sons was founded by Leonard P. Belson in 1955 when he established the Docklands practice in London's East End after leaving the Royal Army Medical Corps. He went on to become one of the UK's leading practitioners, especially in the emerging field of contact lenses. He carried out research with some of the pioneering contact lens laboratories of the day, much of which was published in the professional journals.

The group is now operated by Leonard Belson's sons, Simon and Seth, and Simon's son Ethan. With the wisdom from the previous two generations and many years experience, our youngest member Ethan has been a great addition to the Belson & Sons team. Together they maintain the strong tradition of family eye care and quality products which have always made the practices so successful.
