Have you ever wondered why it is that we need glasses? What's happening in the eyes that make us need glasses to help us to see?
Short sightedness (Myopia) is a very common eye problem needing glasses to help to see the far distance.
Our number of 5 star reviews is always growing. Here is what some of our current clients have to say
We have used Village Optician for a few years now. Having tried the usual High St opticians previously, we find them very professional, friendly, nothing is too much trouble, and they take time to explain any issues. It is refreshing not to be rushed and feel pressured into buying new spectacles at every visit.
I visited the Village opticians recently and today collected my new glasses. From the first meeting with the staff to collecting my glasses what a fantastic experience everyone has been so friendly and helpful. I explained I had a problem getting a frame to fit correctly, they told me It wouldn’t be a problem they could sort it. This is the first time I have gone to collect glasses and have them fit first time also the lens they recommended are great. I saw the reviews on line before I visited this opticians and can say I agree with their comments. Your eyesight is precious and this opticians go the extra mile to make sure you receive the best treatment.

I have used The Village Optician for the first time and have been very impressed with the service I have received. I felt the eye test was very thorough and choosing new frames was easy as their range is extensive. Very professional and friendly service from start to finish. I highly recommend this opticians.
