Customer reviews

All the staff at Specsavers Darlington were very professional in their looks and their work. It was a real pleasure to attend and whilst waiting I was able to witness every person that entered the store was greeted and treated in the same pleasant and professional manner. It is a very well managed operation and the management team -and the staff of course - should be congratulated.

I knew what my eye condition was before I attended my examination !, ( as a diabetic had attended eye clinic for this illness, ) The person who gave me my eye exam, made me feel that my personal well being came before making a quota of issuing a new set of glasses !.

Graham, Darlington

I did not have to wait, the staff we're ready as soon as I attended my appointment. I found the staff very polite and very pleasant. They took an interest in me generally and made me feel welcome throughout my whole visit.
