Newest Review: ... I particularly like the one where the poor old sheep dog ends up being shorn by his badly sighted master. So for once taken in by the adverts and the lure of a good deal, I booked a session at the local Spec Savers, this one in Rushen, Northants. I did this on line and got a call back from the store with confirmation of the appointment time. This was followed up by a reminder text the ... more

Why an eye test in the first place ======================== Being over 50 I suffer from 'short arm syndrome' or presbyopia to give its proper name. That is, I struggle to read small print (or not so small if I'm really honest) and generally find it harder to adjust when changing from near to far focus. To solve this problem I use over the counter reading classes or 'ready readers' which come in some great styles and colours and at very good prices. As a result I have numerous pairs scattered about the house and in my handbags although strangely they nearly always seem to end up in the same place ie on my bedside table. About 3 years ago I had one ... Read the complete review

Oswestry Specsavers have proved incapable of prescribing and fitting glasses suitable for my weak eyes. I had an eye test in July and new glasses fitted in August. I struggled unsuccessfully to adjust to them, returned to the store, was given a swift eye test (but not a written record). New lenses were ordered and the new glasses were re-fitted three weeks later, just before I went on holiday. Unfortunately, these lenses were little better. I had to push the glasses onto my eyebrows to read print on a table right in front of me. I had to remove my glasses completely to read maps. Vision through my right eye was unclear both at distance and ... Read the complete review

Bought new glasses in feb 2013 from specsavers. They are fine., then I used my 50% voucher to buy another pair, more expensive frame. When they were delivered to shop, the varifocal was not sharp enough and after a long time checking everyting, they re ordered them. I went to pic them up today, and the lense was not fitted in the frame, there was a hold between the frame and the lense. the lense also was not clear. And they had only replaced the right varifocal lense.( I have a balanced lense in the left eye) I was so corss, and so dissapointed. I got my money back.I would not recomend specsavers.

After struggling to read small print and work on my laptop I decided to get my eyes tested and went to Specsavers in order to take advantage of the buy-on-get-one free offer. My eyes were initially tested downstairs by someone who may have been some sort of optical technician before I went upstairs for the proper eye test. My eyes were tested by a not quite qualified optician and I must say he was very good and thorough and I am more than happy with my resulting prescription. I had taken my daughter with me for advice when choosing the glasses and was prepared to spend some time choosing the right pair for me and to try on every pair in the shop when making my ...

My employer had a corp deal with SS so used them for eye test and supply of varifocals where I paid the difference between allowance and cost. Went for most expensive (best) lenses with all the bells and whistles treatment. When ready I collected and tried them, couldn't get a clear view but was assured that it was just a case of getting used to them. A couple of weeks and I went back, checked by SS who said all ways good, persevere. Back again, same story. Popped into VE a few doors down after 2 mins diagnosed they had the wrong prescription in. Back to SS, asked them to check and they confirmed they were fitted with wrong prescription. ... Read the complete review
