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 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Excellent shop and service. We have been customers since my son started wearing glasses 4 or 5 years ago aged just 2. Since day one Andrew, Mary and Dawn could not have been more patient and helpful despite our very frequent initial trips due to accidental damages! Andrew always goes above and beyond to ensure that our son has the glasses he needs and we all now attend the practice. Thanks all of you :)

Really lovely, modern independent opticians. From the moment you walk in, the staff are so welcoming and the shop has a really great selection of frames. Andrew is a first-class optician! Very helpful, professional and friendly.
