I was so happy with my glasses!! I would normally go to a larger more well known optometrist but I really felt my sight was still so poor with them and they always had loads of people there at once. I went to Andrew Baird Optometrist and I felt such a difference. I could see properly for the first time in quite a few years. Such a calm atmosphere, really lovely staff and you get one to one without feeling rushed. I would definitely recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
