It must be 20years since I first came to you for contact lenses as a 12 year old who could hardly maintain eye contact with people and always walked with my head to the floor..I owe a lot of my confidence to you, thank you ! xx

Very impressed by courtesy and professionalism at David Gould Opticians. Really helped by the time and effort involved using great technology to better understand my 'dry eye' condition. Products recommended and how and why they would help were specific to my needs. Thank you.

Dear david, as a valuable member of our Rossendale Business Over Breakfast (BoB) newtorking club, david Gould became the chosen optician for me and many other members. Since becoming a customer of David Gould Opticians, I ahve always received honest advice. Whenever I visit the opticians, I'm always made to feel welcome and David's friendly staff are both knowledgeable and approachable. I have complete faith in David Gould Opticians and feel confident that my precription will only change if my eyes do. It's nice to have an honourable optician that I can rely on and trust. I would highly recommend David Gould opticians. Yours sincerely, Tracy Heatley

In February 2011, said about David Gould Opticians

I have to say that this was an eye test like no other I've ever had at a 'run of the mill' optician! This was much more than just an eye test - it was an education. David Gould has invested in the latest technology to enable you to learn so much more about, not only your eyes, but your general health too. I didn't need a new prescription and there was no pressure on me to buy for the sake of buying. As a contact lens wearer I was pleased to discover that rather than just offering a one size fits all 'range' of contact lenses, David provides various contact lenses to suit your individual eyes, personal needs and lifestyle. If you're looking for a full 'eye MOT' look no further. I'd recommend David Gould Opticians unreservedly.

We have worked with David for nearly 12 months now and David has supported our project from day 1. David works tirelessly to promote the great services, businesses and organisations across the Valley. I am always given a warm welcome when I visit either of his shops in Haslingden and Rawtenstall. I would recommend anyone to go along and meet the team to find out for themselves the great services and offers David has in store.
