5 reasons why we’re the right choice for you

Our clinics are owned and led by the consultant doctors who care for you. For them it’s personal. The whole team are dedicated to understanding your needs so they can provide you with the best possible experience and we know this also results in measurably better outcomes.

Our personalised patient care will make you feel comfortable and at ease. We’ll give you a warm welcome, hold your hand if you’re nervous and be there for you throughout your time with us.

Our short waiting times mean you’ll have your first appointment within a couple of weeks, and we aim to complete treatment within eight weeks of your referral.

We choose to use the highest-quality lenses which means you’ll get the best clinical outcomes, including some that can reduce your dependence on glasses. Importantly, we’ll always give you a choice and explain the options.

State-of-the-art facilities with the latest equipment, and free parking ensure you can focus on you when you come to visit us.
