Independent Over Multiple

A Which? Magazine survey in 2016 confirmed why Independent is better than Multiple (reinforcing the same outcome in 2014). Whilst this wasn’t news to us, it helped to show why sometimes you just can’t beat that “local” feeling.

Customer Testimonals


I have some complex eye issues and I have always received first class, professional advice and support from Pretty. Her staff team are also very friendly and helpful. I always receive a warm welcome. It is very reassuring to have such a great team looking after my vision needs.

A few weeks ago my 83yr old mam was given end of life care in hospital. After seeing one of her lenses was broke I took them to her opticians (which were you). After getting them fixed I was able to pass them to a nurse (restricted visiting). Whilst waiting for them being repaired, mam improved so the day after she got her glasses she was transferred to a care home. On Tuesday I went to have a quick visit at mams (through a window without her knowing) and it broke my heart...her new glasses had disappeared. No one could help. I was mortified n crying. So today (Thurs) I went back to the same branch and told the fabulous young lady what had happened. Obviously I cried!! Her reaction was most sincere… she helped me! She not only fixed me up with a brand new set (with chain) she did it within 15 minutes!! I cannot praise her enough. My mam will be over the moon. Thank you ❤
