Health and safety at a critical time.

During the pandemic I had concerns... but the standards of care exceeds even hospital waiting areas.
Waiting room chairs are constantly cleaned and testing room air is put through a uv sterilisation filter .

I give the team have full marks for both patients safety and the professional interest in the welfare of my families eye health.
Highly recommended.

Excellent personal service-highly recommend

Fantastic service from Paul Ridlington last week. Originally just planned to find out what the prescription in my current glasses is so I can order some cheapos online. Anyway I then asked him how much his cheapest glasses are. £39! So I picked a lovely pair and including the non reflective coating it was only £54 and I got them within an hour! It’s a fallacy that independent shops are more expensive than the huge chains. Please support local businesses! I was blown away by the personal service I got from Paul and the time he took. Wasn’t rushed in and out. He had a mask on and gloves and all the Covid requirements. Couldn’t fault him. Love my glasses and love the fact that he made them on the spot. No waiting period - my old ones were 9 years old, broken hinges and falling off my face. He matched a gorgeous purple and white case to match my purple and white specs. Fantastic attention to detail.

Service second to none

A proper independent opthalmic opticians - not a chain trying to maximise profit from gimmicks. On-site repairs to the highest standards resulting from years of experience and practical application. My eyes matter to me so I won't go anywhere else.
