Customer Testimonials

While the shop is a little dated, the opticians and equipment here are first rate and miles better than high street chains like Vision Express, Boots, etc. If you have fairly standard prescriptions or more unusual preselections then you will be looked after very well.


Excellent service. If you have a problem they will always squeeze you in to see someone.Cannot fault them.


Very happy with the friendly service, its good they stay open till 6pm.
