Very friendly family run business

I was in Bird for a sight test a few weeks ago, have collected my glasses today and they are great. The test was very thorough and the lady who tested my eyes was very chatty. It is family run and Mr Bird (who still owns the practice) daughter now works here too. Nice to see somewhere still family run. All the girls were very helpful and chatty.

They can't get their job right!

I purchased a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses on Jan 26 2016. I'm slightly nearsighted. Ever since I'm going back and forth, as they cannot get the lenses match to my prescription. I see a stain or shadow in one of the lenses. Every time I go back, I see someone new and I'm told something different. So, finally today, they tell me that it might be because the lenses are not polarised like my old glasses and for £15 more I could have done that!!! Mind you, they came up with many more "diagnosis" every time I went in!! I was so upset, as I was not given the option in the first place. It's more than a month and I'm yet to wear and enjoy my new sunglasses. I'm going to a sunny vacation this weekend and I was really hoping to get to wear them at last. What a disappointment! If your glasses are broken and you need a pair ASAP, this place is not for you, plus you have to take many times off to keep trying your glasses on and get disappointed every time.
