Helpful and friendly

Stewart Duncan are always amazingly helpful and patient. When I accidentally broke my glasses recently they ordered the part and got it in in just 2 days and then sorted out replacement under warranty with no fuss. They are generous and friendly, and very much of the community.

Very poor and unprofessional service

I thought instead of going to a franchise I choose independent optician, seeking a good service and supporting independent business, despite being more expensive! I was seen by the optometrist Mr Ronaghan, who was very professional and knowledgeable. But John, the gentleman who deals with executing prescriptions and ordering lenses was very incompetent, rude and unprofessional. For 2 months he couldn’t get the right lenses ( 3 times got the wrong lenses) and Since my first appointment in February until April he made me going there almost every other weekend and eventually he left me with a pair of lenses that I couldn’t see through them! Every time I wanted to complain and asked for the manager , he said “I’m the OWNER and manager” ! His language was always very patronising and always implying that YOU DONT KNOW WHATS GOOD FOR YOU even if it is a pair of glasses that you know YOU CANT SEE THROUGH THEM! He even admitted over charged me for £80 although he refunded the money eventual

An outstanding professionalism and service

I normally don’t write reviews but this time I’ve decided that the level of professionalism and service my family received from the team at Stewart Dancan Opticians is such an outstanding and at a high level that it shouldn’t pass without a comment.
When you visit an independent optician ( rather then the big high street chain shops) you are anyway expecting a good level of service. Well, John will give you an exceptional welcoming and together with all his team he will make sure that your eyes will be examined by a very experienced professionals, help you with choosing a frame ( if needed) and the icing on the cake - the prices are reasonable.
We will certainly be coming back!
Thank you from Iris 🙏
