Customer reviews

This was my first eye test at the age of 30 so I was a bit apprehensive. Hannah, honestly made me feel less nervous, explained everything in detail and felt like she genuinely cared about my eye health. After a clear result of my test it didn’t stop her from wanting to take it further incase there was something else to be done which I really appreciated.

Rhona, Aberdeen

The ability to get an appointment in a short space of time, and their adherence to Covid regulations. As a pensioner, with medical conditions that place me at risk I appreciate being made to feel safe.
