Philip was really helpful at my hearing consultation. He exp...lained everything to me, was a really nice guy and put me at ease. Great facilities with all the latest technology to get the best results. I would highly recommend him.

I have been a regular at Bayfields (and under its previous n...ame) for nearly 25 years. My Mum was struggling to get varifocals to work following cataract surgery in one eye. We’d had a couple of failed attempts with her existing optician, so I suggested we visit Bayfields in Chester instead. The care, patience, reassurance and kindness we experienced was outstanding and Mum now has varifocals which work. As a hearing aid wearer, this has improved her life beyond measure - no more switching between glasses. She is beyond delighted. The atmosphere in the shop is warm and welcoming, they have all the latest technology and we cannot thank them enough for finding a solution which works. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their service.

Just had my annual eye check and from reception staff to car...e and attention from optician Natalie it was first class all the way. It is always a joy to see professionals delivering a great service and also enjoying their work. Many thanks.
