Rohini Jansari, who has run the shop on Crouch End Hill for 23 years, says she enjoys the “village feel” of the area, which was why she opened her shop here.

“When I originally came here, there wasn’t the chain stores that are here now. I also liked the artistic community you get here.”

The shop, which does eye tests and sells handmade frames, also has visiting optometrists from Moorfields Eye Hospital, meaning residents have less far to travel for some checks.

While the internet provides a test for the business, generations of customers keep coming back.

“It happens every day,” she told us. “It makes me feel very old. Especially when parents bring in their children, and I remember testing their eyes when they were eight or nine years old.”
