I have found both Andrew and Fiona very professional, attentive and interested in my eye health. They explain all the processes undertaken in enough detail to understand them and explain any findings carefully. Not only are Andrew and Fiona helpful, all of the staff are helpful and friendly. An excellent service all round. Thank you

Lovely new spacious premises. A very professional and reassuring examination by Fiona. Excellent choice of glasses with very helpful advice from Lisa. I had my appointment on Tuesday and by Saturday I was wearing my new glasses. Super friendly staff made this visit most enjoyable.

Excellent service - extremely professional. I also paid extra for the 3D scan of my eyes and it was well worth it because a problem was discovered. An appointment at the hospital Eye Clinic was recommended and with Fiona’s assistance my appointment came through very quickly. No hard sales push for the frames and a very pleasant experience all round. Would highly recommend. Felt very happy and safe with the covid precautions too. The staff were all so pleasant and friendly.
