Specsavers - best sight on the high street
Member Name: Lady_Alys
Advantages: Great all round
Disadvantages: None to think of
I started wearing glasses when I was 11, it was a bit of a shock going from being able to see perfectly to everything becoming blurry. I have worn glasses ever since and gone through all the different stages - getting the right prescription, continually testing as I grew up, not wanting to wear them because they made me look like a 'swot', wearing them again and then into the glasses or contacts phase - and gone through a couple of different companies as well.
Until I discovered Specsavers, I have not left them since.
My experiences with them will always be a lot different to other peoples, I go to my local one so my review will be based on that.
I have always received fantastic service by polite, smartly dressed employees. I have never had any service pushed onto me but they always recommend offers and alternatives, including one time when the two for one offer was available. I had picked a pair of designer glasses and then a cheaper one, I simply picked the ones I liked, but I was asked my the lady helping me if I didn't want to pick another designer pair instead of the cheaper one as the price would be the same. I politely declined the offer as I had picked the ones that appealed to me but it was nice of her to mention it.
When it came round to the idea of going with contact lenses (for the second time after I had had a disastrous time with another company and ended up with an eye infection) all the information was readily available to me and I was glad I took the plunge. My lifestyle had changed and glasses, on certain situations, where more in the way (namely on nights out when they would try and fly off on the dancefloor) than useful so conatcts it was. I made the appoinment, didn't have to wait too long for it either, and was treated incredibly well by all the staff.
The price of the contact lenses where also more reasonable than places I had been to before and I had been warned about a wait for them but it was only about a week before I had them. They also called to let me know they where in. From then on whenever I have need to get more I simply pop in and they always have a large supply in stock so I get them on the day.
Overall (after much waffling) my experiences have always been positive, plenty of choice on products, lots of help on hand and very reasonably priced. I would recommend for any glasses or contacts wearer to give Specsavers a go.
Summary: Great company with lots of help all round
