We started as a partnership in 1916 between George William Dipple, (who at the time was a jeweler of Swan Lane, Norwich) and Thomas Conway. The original site on Castle Street was purchased by George Dipple as a place to park his car!

On the death of the founding partners in the 1950’s the business was taken over by Thomas Conway’s son, Dominic. Dominic further expanded the business until his retirement in 1990. Meanwhile, in the 1980’s, Dominic’s three sons, Damian, Robert and James joined the business after undergoing professional training in optometry and dispensing optics.

Since then the optical world has changed beyond recognition. Developments in clinical practice, frame and lens technology, contact lens applications and laser eye assessments are among the leaps forward which we have embraced. It is this willingness to change and evolve that has helped us to grow into one of the most successful independent groups in the region.

In 2011 Matthew and Ben Conway joined the business full-time to take Dipple & Conway into the future of optometry.
