I called for emergency appointment as I had a problem with my eye. I was seen the following day, the issue was dealt with, very professionally and with care. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming. I will definitely be using Opticare for my eye tests in the future. Thank you

I can’t recommend Opticare Thornliebank highly enough. Having tried unsuccessfully with varifocals from two other local opticians, I’d almost given up hope of finding a pair of glasses that would work for me. Thankfully, I gave it another go with Opticare and they were able to identify the problem which had eluded the other optometrists I had seen. Now, having been fitted with Varilux X lenses, I can honestly say they have been a revelation. For excellence in optometry, price, quality of product and customer care, look no further than Opticare Thornliebank
