Outstanding service from start to finish. From the moment I picked up the phone about an enquiry a few days ago to my visit today nothing was too much trouble.

Polite, professional and extremely helpful. Will definitely be going to see these guys again for all of mine and my family’s eye-care needs.

Thank you.

Had my eyes tested just before the announcement that I would have to isolate for 12 weeks.

As I was unable to collect my new specs (which I was desperate for) they very kindly delivered them to my home.

Thanks so much Longton Optical!
