Recently had to change optician as my usual one was bought out by Vision Express. I used David Dowley in Acomb and was pleased to be treated with good old fashioned regard and attention. The eye care was flawless in my opinion, and all information that I needed, was presented in an un-rushed manner with due consideration. I give this top marks for my experience of an optician.

I moved to this optician and felt I’d been offered the best of care and attention. Courteous service, comfortable surroundings, and always feeling like I’d been attended to you by a highly experienced professional who spent time explaining, and had answers to all questions. Large chains of opticians work in a different way.

Very friendly and helpful staff, and took time to make sure i selected glasses that fitted rather than any old pair will do situation. Top Marks indeed.
