WHAT PEOPLE SAY

I was delighted with the service I received from St Albans eye care centre and would highly recommend this service to others. I’ve been wearing glasses for over 30 years and this has been the best experience with an optician that I’ve had to date.

From helping me choose the right frame for me at the moment, the  efficient service, the comfortable surroundings, to the confidence inspired by all of the friendly and approachable team, all of this added up to a service I’d readily go back to next time I need new glasses.
