As independent optician, we are able to offer a comprehensive range of quality products and enhanced services to meet the needs of our local community. We aim to provide you with the highest standards of professional eye care and a friendly, personal service, together with excellent value for money.
When you visit our practice, your eyes will be examined by a fully qualified optical practitioner. We will discuss your individual needs, answer your questions and advise you on keeping your vision in the best possible condition. You will also receive a copy of your optical prescription.
We believe in transparency, so should you need glasses or contact lenses, you will be given a full explanation of the different options available and the costs involved.
Laura is one of our newest members in the team. She is our technical brains having had experience in working in Optical Labs in the past… so if it’s broken – she can fix it!
Laura is also one of our main frame stylists having had worked in establishments in affluent areas in London where she has styled out many top professionals (and even some famous faces!) Laura says, “Fashion these days is everything. We live in digital age where browsing on social media is part of our daily lifestyle. Instagram and Facebook are not just the craze of young kids but also many professionals and businesses. We want to look good because looking good means feeling great! So getting styled out in new glasses should be a fun experience, because you don’t know who will be scrolling past your face throughout the day!”
Prity is one of our newest team members on the front line, with approximately 10 years of experience in Optics prior to Eye 2 Eye. Prity has worked within well known Multiple Practices and also several Independent Practices and interacted with a diverse patient range with a variety of needs. Prity enjoys getting to know her patient’s and connecting to them to ensure that they are at ease throughout their selection of glasses process. Prity says, “I believe in embracing the mindset of an individual. Buying a pair of glasses can be a daunting and difficult process, even more so if you come in alone for your eye examination. Wearing glasses will always be a part of you and your personality and will be the first thing someone will notice (rather than your new pair of shoes on your feet!). If we consider comfort and style as 2 most important factors during our selection process for our footwear, the same really goes for eyewear. Self-satisfaction for me is spending quality time with patient’s and finding the optimum solution for them keeping these factors in mind.”
