Wonderful, friendly staff !”

I couldn't be happier with the service these fantastic ladies have provided over the years! Even my children get excited to go for a sight test! Nothing is too much trouble either for Tracy, Amy & Regan while I am having my sight test to keep my little monkeys entertained!”

I have no hesitation in recommending Abi’s work as an optometrist. My eyesight, obviously, is very important to me because among other things I love driving; I have a mate who lost his driving licence through an eye problem last year and he was devastated.

I am diabetic and it can effect eyesight so it is very important to get as good check ups as possible, and I think Abi can perform that for me. I make use of the additional technology that she has recently installed and I have 100 per cent trust in what she does on behalf of keeping my eyesight as good as it can be
