Customer reviews

I have always found the staff to be very helpful, pleasant and customer friendly and always willing to explain things to me and answer any questions I may have in detail.

Lynda, Newport Gwent - Austin Friars

Promptly seen, lots of staff on hand to help. Wouldn’t go anywhere else!

Heather, Newport Gwent - Austin Friars

The ease of everything. Nothing felt like too much trouble and the staff were incredibly friendly. Being someone who has PTSD I get panicky in small spaces such as the test rooms but I felt at ease throughout the process. If I had the staff in my workplace that Specsavers Newport had, I’d be extremely proud and happy.
