What our customers say about us
Matthew offered me first class treatment when I visited for an appointment. Nothing was too much trouble and he the took time to explain everything I asked. I would recommend Crowborough opticians to anyone needing an eye test.
A long overdue review about my recent experience at Crowborough Opticians. The service was one of a kind and rare, the type you do not really experience nowadays! I am a glass-wearer for most of my life and had so much trouble to find suitable and well fitting frames with adequately thinned lenses. The team (with Anne (hope I remember the name well) helping me all way through) was honest, not trying to sell but guided me gently to find the best glasses, and made the whole experience so much better than usually is. Thank you so much for everything. Surely will return if I need another pair!
Excellent help and service when a lens dropped out of my specs during a long journey. Repair carried out quickly and efficiently and was able to resume journey.
Excellent Service all round!! Friendly and made you feel extremely welcome!! I have been with Specsavers and more recently Vision Express all I can say Crowborough Opticians make you feel valued where the others you are just a number..
Excellent 10 Stars and would highly recommend!
Lovely store, very clean and tidy, lovely service and extremely professional!!! The choice of frames are also very smart and the staff will happily sit down with you and discuss your requirements to offer you the most affordable price
If you know a person living with dementia that needs their eyes tested, I can highly recommend Matthew Smee. I chose him because I hoped he’d be used to dealing with older people as there’s a hearing centre attached. He has experience of working in care homes for over 10 years and 33 years experience. He was a lovely man, he found really good ways of asking questions to get the answer he needed. Instead of using technical words like photochromic lenses, he said, when you go outside, do your glasses go dark? Do you like that to happen? He was kind, patient and didn’t rush us at the end to make decisions and was really clear about different options. The experience was a pleasure.
