Our Guarantee

You will have your vision and eye care requirements fully explained and needs met where possible.
Should you require glasses you will be offered a range of frames that fit and flatter, and within your selected budget.

We don’t change your specs if you don’t need to or don’t want to. You should see better with your new specs or we’ll give you your money back.

All appropriate options for vision correction are presented, including contact lenses, as there may be more than one solution to fit your lifestyle.

The frames, lenses and contact lenses we use are best in class. We believe you deserve that.
