I attended my scheduled eye appointment today with Sonam. T...he service I received from her, as well as from Sylvester and Callum front-of-house afterwards, was simply excellent. All three went above-and-beyond to find solutions that fitted my needs and my budget. All this, served up with friendly professionalism, kindness and good humour. I couldn't ask for more. Based on my continued experience of being a customer here, I would definitely recommend the service.

Amazed to see this opticians still. Went here back in 1983 f...or my first ever pair of glasses. I still have them for memories with the original card in the case.

This was my first visit to have an eye examination with this... company. Considering we were still under Covid restrictions, the initial online booking and subsequent pre-visit call, was very efficient and handled in a friendly manner. The examination itself was with state of the art equipment and this was also friendly and efficient. Following this, the discussion with Lucy on the choice of lenses and frames was very helpful and again friendly. I now have choices to make, but look forward to returning once I have made some decisions. Thank you to all.
