Customer reviews

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

Brendan, Athlone

The customer service from all of the staff from the moment I walked into the shop was of an extremely high standard, and was genuine and not something that was forced or made you think the staff "had" to do it. The staff seemed to get on very well and work well together which I think is very important in a team environment. I would have no hesitation in returning at any time if I had any issue.
