"It makes me feel proud," said Jutinder, speaking about the 50th anniversary.

He said the opticians' success was due to "the one to one service we can give customers, the personalised service as well, and the technology we use in store, using a OCT machine and the iPad for measurements".

"We can order a frame in for you and give you that personalised experience which you can't get on the high street," he said.
