OPTICA MACHIN: Professional eye care on the Costa del Sol


THE English Optician in Estepona is a well established opticians, headed by Jane Staunton Machin, that has been offering its clients a wide range of services for over 14 years.

After qualifying from City University London, Jane worked in England both in private and public sectors before moving to Spain with the family. “As a fourth generation optician, I wanted to continue working, so I covalidated my qualifications registering with the Spanish Colegio in 1994. I opened Optica Machin in June 2000 providing eye-care services on the Costa del Sol,” said Jane.

The family-run practice offers a friendly, caring and personalised service to its clients.


“We offer full eye examinations, including glaucoma pressure checks and advice on all types of lenses. Sun protection is paramount and we carry a selection of sunglasses for prescription lenses. Light Sensitive Photo-chromatic lenses are also a good option. Of course I also fit contact lenses and these are ideal for sports or social wear.”

“We have a good selection of lightweight titanium and rimless frames and try to cater for all tastes and budgets,” Jane said.

“We have a selection of designer and new lightweight plastic frames as well as budget options but please feel free to call us to discuss your specific requirements with either myself or my colleague Joanne.

 Optica Machin also offers vision therapy. “It is important that children have regular checks and any problems are identified early. Lazy eyes, squints, dyslexia can often be treated through exercise and lenses,” Jane explained.

Optica Machin goes a step further in the care they provide for the community.

A home visit service can be arranged by appointment for those clients with mobility problems, bringing to them eye care in the comfort of their own home.
