Customer reviews

When it was found that my prescription hadnt changed, no pressure was put on me to buy new glasses. Will certainly return regularly.

Paul, Dumbarton

The staff were welcoming and friendly and put my daughter at ease as she has had bad experiences of eye tests in the past following being diagnosed with Drusen deposits in her eyes. The optician we saw empathised with this and did all she could to put her at ease, explaining everything she was going to do. Its the first eye test appointment in the last 3 years where we haven't had any tears!!

Laura, Dumbarton

Again the service is first class,
