Bottle Tops on those Madam? I first got glasses when I was about 7 years old, and I hated them from the word go. I am not sure if any fellow sufferer recalls those awful grey plastic Bottle Top glasses that seemed to be NHS standard provision if you were a child and your parent couldn't afford to...

ConsPricey compared to Specsavers

I've recently started a mystery shopping job and my first assignment was one that I jumped at the chance of carrying out as I was due for an eye test anyway. I had to book an appointment over the telephone, attend and see if I was offered everything on the list. As I live in Scotland my eye test...

Having had glasses since the age of 11 I have been using private opticians for over 20 years and started to get fed up with the lack of choice so thought I'd pay a visit to the D&A store in Cheltenham. This is my experience: Eye Test The optician I saw was really nice and put me at ease so this...

Think I'll go to specsavers for my daily disposable contact lenses from now on!! Sorry if this is a bit long-winded but I want to tell the whole story.... I had been a customer of D& A for many years spending 100s with them on specs and lenses and until recently was very happy. My West London...

I would just like to write a review of these opticians, based on my experiences after having my eyes tested (or rather re-tested after another one made a muckup) and theh subsequent purchase of glasses from them. Why choose Dolland and Aitchison (hereafter known as D&A for ease of use)? I had...

Now, while D and A may not remember my name like my old optician, I'm more than willing to forgive them. The service I've received has always been professional and friendly. I was tempted away from my old optician by the big special offer signs offering contact lens trials. It's not the kind of...

“EYE OF THE HIGH STREET”

published 23/04/2004

ProExcellent customer service

Consprices seem steep

Since I was in primary school I have been wearing glasses, I’ve always tended to be long sighted – though gradually over the years with age and various other things my eye sight is just getting worse full stop. Anyway, as a kid my parents used to take me to the ONLY opticians in our town –...

ConsPricing needs to be more straight forward

Dolland and Aitchison is a franchise opticians that operates throughout the UK. Now if you are going to have your eyes tested you will choose an optician local to yourself and like everything in the world and life there is good and bad in everything. So when I speak about my experiences will D&A...

WOW now that's what I call service. Last year both me and the wife were with another Opticians (see my other review!!), however, this year we decided we needed a better service so off we went to D&A in Bath. The wife and I have both been glasses wearers for many years now and after the service...

ConsNone yet

I was devastated at the age of 8 when the optician said I needed glasses. I have an older sister who has perfect eyesight and so it was grossly unfair that I should have to be afflicted. My mum promised me she would bye me some nice specs which lessened the blow, but in reality she made me get...

Contact by post is what I used now from D&A Direct. It has been a nightmare before getting people teasing on me a school when I was in school feeling insecure of my looks and just having these was a real winner for me to have. I have self-confidence about my self. I haven't totally left out my...

Consover priced

Just lately my eyes have been hurting and things have been a tad bit blurry so I thought I'd book myself an eye test. I was very blessed to receive a leaflet through the door for a free eye test (normally £27) from Dolland and Aitchison so decided to go ahead with it. I used their website to book...

I'm extremely fed up with the service I have received at D&A on Union Street in Glasgow. I would recommend you never use Dolland & Aitchison as your opticians. I had my first appointment with them a couple of years ago. Having no idea which opticians to use, I was informed by a few friends that...
