Glasses breakage protection - For some people being without their glasses can amount to losing their sight, so we appreciate how important it is to get a replacement pair quickly. The Grand Advantage card was created with this in mind, as well as to give you and your family some extra benefits.

Multifocal Contact Lenses

Do you wear multifocals and think you can't wear contacts? Well think again. It's amazing how many people rule themselves out of wearing contact lenses because they don't think they have a suitable prescription. Technological advances in contact lenses are amongst the fastest moving in optics so it's a rare occurrence when we can't find the perfect lens to suit any eye - even those that require varifocals!

Varifocals

Eyes change throughout our lives, gradually losing the ability to focus on close objects. Varifocals are ideal for all distances, as the lens corrects near, distance and in-between vision.

Customer Reviews:

I was recently in the store with my son who was home from Asia for a few days and wanted new spectacles and sunglasses to take back. I can only say that Bernie and Isobel's attitude is very ' can do' - problem does not seem to be in their vocabulary. My son now has two pairs of spectacles and a pair of polarised sunglasses, which, because they took a week to glaze, were forwarded to my son in Asia by Vision Experes. Once again, thanks Isobel and Bernie, Vision Express are lucky to have you both.

I stumbled in to your store suspecting I may need to get an eye test. I was initially put off by the sign implying you needed an appointment, but the lady said there was a cancellation and I could go straight through. Sadly I didn't catch her name, but she did my initial test.

I then met Malachy, who was a lovely gentleman. He was very professional and had a very approachable personality. He advised me that I needed to contact my GP because of the results of his thorough tests.

Finally, I met Bernie - what a star! I am not a wealthy person and I was feeling a little overwhelmed by some of the prices of the frames on display. She was quickly able to probe to find my needs and came up with a fantastic, affordable solution. She even went out of her way to ensure I was able to afford the lenses Malachy had recommended.

Tonight I called the store to see if my lenses had arrived. Declan answered the call and advised me I could pick them up shortly.

In all I had a fantastic first experience. While it may come as second nature to some, I was originally put off by the idea of visiting a high street optician.

I am only now realising how poor the sight was in my right eye after an evening of comparing on/off.

Thanks to everybody who made this possible, I really appreciate all of your hard work, professionalism and good manners.

Best Regards,

Gareth
