A friend of mine was nervous when he realised he needed glasses for the first time. I have had to wear glasses for almost all of my 70 years, which prompted him to ask me to accompany him on his first ever visit to an Optician, as moral support.
We went to the one in Hounslow High St. I was soon disillusioned with the general level of service afforded to my friend, and made an excuse for us to leave.
I took him straight to Cranford Opticians where I have been going there for years. A friendly, efficient service is available complete with impressive technology, equipment and a large selection of frames.
I never go anywhere else and thoroughly recommend others to do likewise. My friend was impressed and lost his fear of Opticians and spectacles. He's considering contact lenses now!
