Customer Reviews:

Cannot thankyou enough for looking after me, having problems getting used to my first time glasses.
A massive help to find the right kind of lenses to help with my work. A bit resistant to try but glad I did.
Many thanks to the Plymouth staff.

This was my first time ever needing glasses or contacts, I went to Vision Express after attending an eye exam from another competitor, I won't mention any names. When I went to vision express for my second eye exam - I was given half price already as I was really unhappy with the other competitor. I was given the eye exam and had recommendations made for glasses or contacts. I returned to Vision Express for my contact lens chat, as soon as I cam in I was offered a tea or coffee, and so was my Partner. I was introduced to a well dressed man called Simon who explained the entire process in a succinct and professional manner, my Partner had a lot of questions - he has a general interest in this field, and Simon chatted to him about it , explained processes, showed him bits and pieces and took the time to answer my questions also. I was then told a lovely young lady called Ellie who was to show me how to put my lenses in, she was polite, professional and above all patient. I wasn't the most confident about lenses but wanted them, the staff put me at ease and were so helpful at the Plymouth entrance.

I am due to go back for my review shortly for my lenses and would highly recommend Vision Express.

Thank you.
