Our Story

J.H. Steward is now JHS Eyewear

Our mission

Many shooters don’t reach their full potential due to poor or deteriorating eyesight.

At JHS Eyewear, we know that the right prescription shooting glasses can revolutionise your performance, allowing you to shoot as reliably and accurately as possible.

Shooting glasses specialists

With over four decades of experience, our team understands the unique needs of shooters – whatever their discipline.

From commonwealth pentathletes to juniors and enthusiastic amateur shooters, we have helped thousands improve their performance and overcome visual frustrations. 

We love your feedback

At J H Steward we love hearing back from excited customers who write to let us know about the competition they just won or the joy they have found in improvement following years of stagnating or declining progress. 

We love to hear from you – get in touch to speak with our team or book a sports-vision shooting assessment.

Increasing accessibility to the sport

We are proud to resell frames for junior shooters and those less able to afford prescription shooting glasses. Get in touch to see which second hand frames are available, or if you wish to re-sell glasses that have been grown out of/are no longer needed.

168 YEARS of J.H. Steward

James Henry Steward established J H Steward Ltd in 1852. With his first opticians practice located on The Strand, he gained a reputation as a skilled manufacturer of optical, scientific, and nautical instruments.Steward quickly became the primary optician to the Government, the National Rifle Association, and the National Artillery Association. The business remained in the family until 1972 when the founder’s great grandson finally decided to pass on the mantle.

A long-standing employee approached his niece, Elizabeth Goldsmith and her husband Simon, who then took over both the business and a century-old commitment to helping shooters reach their full potential.


Today we continue to attend National Rifle Association meetings and hold a permanent trading location with eye testing facilities at Bisley Shooting Ground, Brookwood (home to the NRA). See our calendar of shooting meets here. J.H. Steward (Bisley) Ltd is now serves shooters from around the world under the new name of JHS Eyewear.
