Community Quote

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 ...

Worth the wait

AdvantagesA fair bit cheaper

DisadvantagesThe waiting time

"...good fit from the start. == ASDA Optician == I have tried both Specsavers and Vison Express over the years and although the glasses have served their purpose They have never been as good a fit as perhaps they should have been, and this was part of my opening statement as I went for my appointment at ASDA to get new specs. I chose from the quite good array of glasses on offer 2 for £137 from the designer range, since I had been saving up my fag money ..." Read review

I can see for miles. Well I can see to read.

AdvantagesGood value, professional optician

DisadvantagesBasic surroundings, lack of choice

"...was laughing. Well was I? The Asda store which I used is not one of Asda's largest. As such the Optician department is relatively small. The Optician was a very nice guy although, as he was quietly spoken and not English, I did have to ask him to repeat his self occasionally. This could happen anywhere though.

Asda Opticians - helped me see clearly

AdvantagesOnline store and instore to choose from

DisadvantagesInstore was very busy because not many Asda's have instore opticians

"...recently switched over to use Asda as my main opticians because I had started to order my contact lenses from the website because in my opinion they are much cheaper than buying them from most the other opticians I have used. I previously shopped instore with Specsavers, I have not had any bad experiences with them apart from the fact my monthly contact lens fee started at £13 and gradually increased to £19 within the space of 1 year, however I had ..."

Asda opticians Leyton branch v poor customer service

AdvantagesCheap. Thorough eye testing, pleasant opticians.

DisadvantagesAbsolutely everything else. The customer is treated as an inconvenience.

"...online ordering of lenses from Asda so I won't have to deal with the staff any more. I went in in February to make appointments for my son and me for contact lens checks and sight tests if we needed them. More than three months later we still aren't sorted out with what we need, and have had several unpleasant encounters along the way. This was caused by a combination of lack of availability of appointments, particularly for children, as they ..." Read review

Asda try harder....

AdvantagesPrice, Appointment times, late night tests

DisadvantagesService overall.

"...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 marrying! I trotted along to the optical counter and asked for an eye test, I was offered an appointment for 3 days later. I enquired if, as stated on the board outside, there was appointments available on the day and I was told 'sorry, no, ..." Read review
