Customer reviews

Wide range of designs to choose from, great level of expertise and first class customer service.

Diane, Taunton

I’ve always gone to Boots for my eye care, but I’ve found them very expensive and didn’t like the customer care. I decided to go to Specsavers for the first time. This was so much better - customer care is excellent, the eye test is better and I thought it was cheaper. I will definitely go back to Specsavers rather than Boots from now on.

The staff were very patient with my brother-in-law who has Asperger's Syndrome.
