Good value, professional optician

Basic surroundings, lack of choice

I have worn spectacles since my late thirties, so getting on for twenty years now. My eyesight has increasingly deteriorated and my previous optician told me, a couple of years ago, that I was starting with cataracts. Lovely, yet another bonus of getting old. Except for once I have used Dollond...

“Worth the wait”

published 19/06/2013

A fair bit cheaper

The waiting time

Intro The old eyes have been a bit tired lately and the old glasses had definitely seen better days. I had purchased two pairs a while back, well I mean a few years back, and had unfortunately mislaid one of the pairs, so I had been left with just one pair. In all honesty I should have returned...

I have been a customer of the Leyton branch for years as it is conveniently located and competitively priced. I've had a number of minor problems, not with the opticians themselves who I think are professional and courteous, but with the counter staff, e.g. orders for contact lenses taken but...

“Asda try harder....”

published 24/05/2006

Price, Appointment times, late night tests

Service overall.

My eyes are bad, they really are, I'd put off getting an eye test for too long and on my shopping trip to Asda in Cardiff, they were advertising same day appointments so I thought I'd pop in, do the shopping, egst the eyes done, come home and find my husband wasn't really who I thought I was...

Fair Prices, quick Service, thorough eye test.

None really

For my last two eye tests I have used the opticians at my local Asda store. The reasons for trying them were convenience and pricing. Since ASDA opened their new store in Poole, the flagship Poole Harbour store, we have done most of our shopping there, firstly because it is extremely convenient...

Asda Trafford Park. I needed a new pair of glasses - saw a leaflet for asda opticians - 2 pairs for £165. Which is a lot cheaper than I have paid in the past... they are also super thinned. so, eye test... £15, thorough.. appeared as good as traditional opticians. Choice of frames.. good range. Delivery time.. quoted 14 days, actually arrived in 4 days. Only criticism is the finished frames weren't 'fitted' to my ears.... (i have one slightly lower than another) fortunately they are level... but sometimes they do need adjusting - depending on the frames. Anyway.. all in all - I would definately recommend asda as an opticians.

Might appear to save you money

No use if you cant wear what you buy........

I was so pleased to find out that Asda were dispensing the lens I required for specs. I have quite bad eyesight, therefore the lens can be very thick. However I was assured by the assistant that the lens could be thinned down the same as the ones I had on from my previous optician. I chose a...

Asda opticains served me well, I only waited two weeks for an appoitment which suited me. They were on time and the test was very thorough. The advise was good and I chose the frames which was suitable for my varifocal prescription. Because of the complex nature of the prescription it took a little longer to despense. I was called in three weeks and the glasses was ready and waiting. A slight irritation was caused when I was told that the glasses needed to be fitted by the despensing optitian, and she was off that day. But it was explained to me that I should have made an appoitment to collect my glasses instead of just turning up. Other than that all was well

I went to ASDA in Bolton/Horwich after a terrible experience at Specsavers. The service I received was far in excess of that I have received at any other major optician such as Vision Express, D&A, and Specsavers. The staff are amazing - professional but friendly and very accommodating. They even swapped a pair after I discovered a problem - which was largely down to my bad choice of frame! The deal was also awesome - I got two pairs of designer frames with aspherical high index lenses (they are as thin as the 1.74 lenses I already have! which cost 275GBP for one pair!) with all the coatings for 225GBP - how can you beat that? Simply outstanding! Buy with confidence. And if you live near Bolton go there!

I have been a customer with Asda Opticians for 3 years, and every one of them has been a living nightmare. The counter workers were lovely, but they could not make up for how the optician's have been, telling me repeatedly, even though there was nothing wrong, that I was going to end up blind...
