Customer Testimonials

This is the best opticians in the area in my opinion. Have been going there for many years. High tech equipment, coupled with old fashioned consistency. Many staff have been there for years! Always will give you the best deal and best sincere advice. Not just about the "money" but more about the "people"! (rare). Highly recommended by me and all my friends in the area.

Always found Observatory Opticians to give first class service. Have used them for many years. Staff friendly but more importantly explain options in a non pressurised manner. Fantastic range of frames and lenses. Most recently bought Zeiss Drive Safe Varifocals in Lindberg frames - very pleased. Highly recommended opticians.

I find all of the staff, friendly, helpful and very patient. Nothing is too much trouble and they certainly do go the extra mile for their clients. Give them a try.

Unlike some of the “chain” stores, you are always made to feel like an individual and the attention to detail and your personalised care is second to none.
