“When you see the kind of reviews Peter and Madeleine get, you may think they are too good to be true. They aren’t!  From beginning to end you are treated in a friendly, courteous and professional manner. Nothing is too much trouble. Each aspect of the eye test was fully explained and any questions I had were answered. Following the eye test with Peter, Madeleine helped me choose the frames. The process was thorough and all my questions were answered. I was treated as a valued customer and individual. Thank you both of you.”

“Going to see Peter and Madeleine is like going to one of those bespoke fashion places in Savile Row. It is a personal one-to-one service, you feel welcomed and special and nothing is too much trouble. Forget those nationwide chains that have fancy adverts and you sit in a line of people waiting to be seen, you just feel like you are on a conveyor belt there.

I had been wondering whether or not to spend much more on the top quality lenses for extra thinness but Peter explained how little difference it would actually make to my vision. It makes such a change not to be persuaded to spend money just for the sake of it. Go to an independent and highly trained optician like Peter and revel in the difference. I would never go anywhere else”
Julie Kahn

“Exemplary, friendly service/experience the like of which you will not find on the high street. I am hard to please and now preferring to travel from Gloucestershire to visit because the care is worth travelling for. State of the art equipment, forget the free eye tests you get what you pay for and this is first class and more thorough. Really can’t recommend high enough, you will be in good hands. thx both i’m very pleased”.
Virginia Burton

“I have just had an eye test and contact lens fitting with Peter and Madeleine and I am very pleased with the service I received. They are both friendly and welcoming and the set up has all the facilities that you would expect from a modern optician. What sets them apart is the attention to detail, the personal attention and friendly approach which puts you at ease. The place is easy to find, there is plenty of parking space which makes it so much easier than coping with traffic congestion and parking charges in town. I will be telling all my friends to go there!”

“Peter Donnelly saw me after hours when my eye became inflamed on holiday. He examined me with great care, eventually advised me to go to the hospital the next day for antibiotics, and even phoned later to check that the problem had been dealt with. The calm kindness and professional concern shown by Peter and Madeleine were very much appreciated. Thank you both!”
