Noakes Habermehl & Kerr was formed in 1979 by Peter Noakes in a small side street in Crownhill. Shortly afterwards Nick Habermehl joined and we opened a second practice in Stoke in 1983. The company continued to develop and were later joined by Optometrist Andrew Kerr in 1986.
During the early years we formed close links with the Royal Eye Infirmary, which we still maintain today with many of our optometrists practising at the hospital each week. From it's humble beginnings Noakes Habermehl & Kerr now employ more than 40 members of staff in six practices and a dedicated lab.
Our philosophy has always been to provide a high quality, clinically biased service and our continued investment in new technology and training brings us ever closer to achieving our goals.
It's not all work, work, work though. We also take an active role in the local community. We hold art competitions and give talks to local schools. We accept a large number of work experience students each year from the local secondary schools and actively promote improvements in ocular health in the wider optical community.
Staff also enjoy contributing towards the many charitable events that we support including Race for Life, Red Nose day, Children in Need, Rotary Youth Leadership and Guide dog for the Blind. Noakes Habermehl & Kerr are also proud to sponsor a local women's league rounders team and our local sailing champion Conrad Humphreys. Noakes Habermehl & Kerr in the community
