  • I would recommend this business

I saw Tom this morning and was very happy with a really thorough eye test, carried out in a professional, but relaxed and friendly manner. I had been having problems with a new prescription after cataract surgery and everyone was helpful, considerate and pleasant.
There is a large car park behind the opticians and a café next door

We regularly visit Alvaston options, especially with broken glasses. The staff are fantastic with Tyler. They arranged his prescription goggles as well for him. Thank you for always looking after us.

After purchasing glasses from Spec Savers and not be able to wear them and having an awlful after care experience, I decided to give a local company a try, hoping for a more personal touch and not being rushed... well I got it here, all the staff are lovely and listen to what you have to say and really take care of you. I have my new glasses and got on with them straight away. Love my new bifocals, thanks guys
