There to check, fit and advise on all types of spectacles and lenses for everyday through to professional sports frames for all types of sports. If you require advice on specific types of Varifocals or have a complex prescription that requires a qualified optician, then the D.O is the person to give you that advice, as we specialise in all types of dispensing and high prescriptions. We also cater for partially sighted people as myself and Kurt both have honours in Low Vision.
