Taank Optometrists

92A, Mill Road, Cambridge, CB1 2BD

01223 350071


Looking around the very stylish and modern interior at award-winning Taank Optometrists, it’s amazing to think that an optician’s practice has existed at 92A Mill Road for over 100 years. It’s equally amazing to know that the practice’s stunning refurbishment – which has led to the practice being finalists for an international design award – came about after the premises were severely damaged by a recent fire in the neighbouring building. But now it’s business as usual for owner Anjana Taank and her team, combining the most up-to-date eye health technology and fashionable eyewear, with the practice’s traditional values of good customer service and community involvement (rightly acknowledged when they were crowned the Association of Optometrists ‘Practice of the Year Award 2017’).


Working as an independent optician as well as in the hospital eye service and voluntarily abroad, Anjana is passionate about what she does as well as incredibly knowledgeable. She works closely with Addenbrooke’s Hospital – in the Glaucoma Clinic and has obtained her Independent Prescribing credentials. This professional work has meant investing in the latest equipment as well as specialised training, so there’s no doubt you are in safe, expert hands with Anjana.


And if you’re looking for top-quality, designer frames and sunglasses, Anjana’s range is hand-picked and selected to reflect style as well as quality. Specialising in sustainable materials including wood and aluminium, from eco-friendly suppliers, Taank provides a bespoke styling service to help you choose the right eyewear – a skill that takes years of experience. British and International designers are chosen for their unique, cutting-edge approach to design and production, with the range including Feb31st (gorgeous wooden frames), Garrett Leight, Lanvin, Anne et Valentin and Hoffman (stunning handcrafted buffalo horn frames) – to name just a few, and the Taank team really do everything to make choosing the perfect frames effortless and, most importantly, enjoyable.
