"I love my new glasses - thank you. I am especially impressed with the new Varilux lens that you recommended - as you know I was a bit sceptical at first as I thought all Opticians sold the same quality lenses'"

- JP, Durham

"I have tried the rest now I have found the best (truly)! The patience, attentiveness and caring way the whole team at the Newton Aycliffe branch dealt with my varifocal lens problem was outstanding. It was such a relief to find out my vision problem could be resolved; I would highly recommend this optician to anyone.
Very professional and above all freindly staff - nothing was too much trouble. Thank you Stephen and Michael for going the extra mile - I know my eye sight problem was a challenge! Thank you so very much and long may you continue to do a grand job"

- YB, Newton Aycliffe
