Having been to my current optician almost all of my life I was nervous about going elsewhere. I was really pleased with the service I received and feel that I am in good hands.

Staff are always very friendly and professional. They are very patient when it comes to choosing a frame and are not pushy or trying to sell you the most expensive frame. Mr Akay is always very through with his eye tests and is always willing to answer any questions I might have.
