Customer reviews

All aspects of appointment were pleasing. Receiving the spectacles so quickly greatest benefit as I really needed them. I read a lot and delayed too long making an appointment as a consequence I was not able to read at night until I received the spectacles, my eyes at seen their best days.

David, Athlone

The attention to detail, feeling safe (Covid) and the genuine helpfulness of every staff member.

Susan, Athlone

All the staff were good on both visits,,for the test and collecting . They explained the details were patience when asked questions and answered them honestly and without judgment and were very positive. v professional The man fitting the glasses( who is from Athlone cannot think of his name ) was very good and patient pleasant and professional I felt he cared for me and my eyes
