Richard at Eyemasters has supplied Glasses to several members of my family, so it made sense to go with their recommendation, and that of others, to visit and buy a new pair for myself. I’m quite short sighted and I wear Varifocals and wanted a good quality pair of Rimless Glasses. I took my prescription and Richard duly supplied what was required. My difficulty was that I’d not had a new pair of glasses for about 7 years and adjusting to the new prescription just wasn’t happening. In fairness, Richard made me two pairs of lenses using different index materials, but to no avail. My distance vision was fine in my old pair, but reading was difficult, I needed a stronger correction. Richard made a third pair taking all this into account (and at his expense) and finally we got there. I warned him that I would be ‘difficult’ and now he knows why! I have no hesitation in recommending him for all your Eyewear needs.
Richard knows his stuff and delivers a quality product; it's as simple as that!! However, the entire process is also relaxed and very friendly - ie an excellent customer experience which speaks volumes in these uncertain times.
Definitely to be recommended!!
I was recommended Eyemasters when the arm fell off my glasses and my current optician told me the glasses would have to go away for 4 days to be repaired or the lens put into new frames. As they are varifocals I would not be able to work. Eyemasters lent me glasses so sending my own glasses away was not a problem. The service was excellent and I will not be going anywhere else in the future . I highly recommend them.
I can't praise Richard at Eyemasters enough. His ocular knowledge is priceless; his ability to advise you on the best pair of glasses for your face is limitless; His prices are value for money and he won't take all your treasure from you. Why am I saying this? Because I have one of each style of glasses he sells! I have the full set so my eyes are protected when they need to be and aid my vision at all times. How precious is your eyesight? Very. So go to the master - Eyemasters. Thank you Richard.
My visit to Richard at Eyemasters was 100% worth it. I am delighted with my glasses, they are both comfortable and stylish; I've had lots of positive comments. Richard himself proved knowledgeable and very confident about what be 'right' for me and he was spot on. He was also kind enough to allow me to collect my glasses on a Sunday; so thoughtful. Absolutely worth the 2 1/2 hour journey - I will be back. Thank you Richard.
I am delighted to recommend Richard at Eyemasters for anyone requiring new glasses. I have had several pairs over the last few years which have addressed issues with reading, my PC and driving at both day and night time. Richard will offer you expert insightful advice, a great range of eye wear and all wrapped up in a one to one personal service simply not available on the high street. Furthermore, service is delivered at a competitive cost without the need to pay for high street rent. 10 out of 10.
Required my first pair of glasses (reading) 20 years after having laser surgery so was a tad bit nervous to find the right pair of glasses. Prior to the laser surgery, I hated wearing my glasses, mainly because I could never find something I felt comfortable in. Having heard great things about Richard's ability to find the perfect pair of spectacles for others, I immediately got in touch with him after my eye appointment showed I needed a mild prescription for reading. Richard's knowledge and demeanour quickly allowed me to put my concerns to the side as he found a pair of glasses that not only allow me to read comfortably, but also provides my eyes with the well-deserved rest they need whilst I stare at my computer screen for hours on end...and they look fabulous too. (I must even admit, I've taken so much to wearing these glasses that I almost feel naked without them when I don't require them!) If anyone has struggled with finding a pair of spectacles that they feel comfortable in, I'd highly recommend Richard of Eyemasters
Picked up my amazing new glasses from Richard at Eyemasters today and I am totally in LOVE with them!
If you believe in investing in great glasses as they are ‘scaffolding for your face’-as Richard would say! Then you need to contact him when you get your next prescription. I stood in Specsavers after my last eye test and felt like nothing was meant for me and I was going to have to stay with my old glasses and old prescription, getting terrible headaches. I then went to Richard and he changed my thoughts, he matches glasses to your face, eyebrows and hair. I couldn’t be happier 🥰
Going to Eyemasters to get your glasses will be the best decision you make, from the beginning of the process meeting Richard in his offices there is a calm assurance, his knowledge his fantastic and he will explain the process with you taking his time to make sure you are happy with your choices and they are the correct one for you. To picking up your glasses where again he spends the time making sure they are adjusted correctly and you are happy. I highly recommend him and will not go anywhere else now
Richard of Eyemasters is very friendly and professional, giving a great service, at a good price! he has been providing my glasses for a few years now! Highly recommend

I’ve just bought my 4th pair from Richard of Eyemasters and want to sing his praises. Every pair has been so much better than any previous pair I’ve ever had. They are faster reacting, more comfortable and most importantly clearer, yes much clearer. I will never go anywhere else and would happily pay twice the amount but don’t tell Richard. Try him I guarantee you won’t regret it
Wow wow wow. Can not thankyou enough.ive spent years wearing glasses that I've been told I have to wear .because I have a very very high prescription and complex lenses. Well not anymore ! Richard has changed that .
My Husband and I both needed glasses and Richard helped us to pick out frames . My Husband first who in the end had 3 pairs . Distance ,Reading and Fine work glasses. I myself only had the one pair but as I said before I have a very complex prescription so just one pair for me .
Richard is very knowledgeable .he helped me pick out a few classes and based on his and my husband views I went with a sky blue frame .Very different from anything I've seen anywhere else.
When the day came to collect them I was very nervous Had I got the right pair? ,as you can imagine I was going on the views of my husband and Richards as I myself couldn't really see what they look like without the lenses in them.😁
My husband tried his first he looked amazing in all of his.
Then came myself when I looked in the mirror .I couldn't believe how beautiful I felt .I atachally cried happy tears . Finally glasses I like that fit my personality.
Highly recommend using Richard (Eyemasters) especially if you have complex lenses.(find the real you with the glasses that show your pepersonality.
Not only a great service .also great value and high quality.
I use a double screen computer set up and spend too many hours working at it. I wear varifocal specs but due to the nature of these glasses I was finding I was cricking my neck to see a sharp screen. And I was getting headaches. Richard suggested I should get a pair of occupational computer specs which I received last week. Instant relief! I feel like I have a new pair of eyes. The screens are pin sharp and I no longer have to crick my neck. And no more headaches. Bliss.
So thank you Richard for your excellent optical advice.
Richard at Eyemaster is well worth visiting. Not only does he have a wide range of frames, including some really funky ones , but he knows how to fit them properly too. Richard is extremely knowledgable in his field and gives you the time to make that right decision. I highly recommend his service.
I've now some new computer glasses from Eyemasters. I can now make a spectacle of myself and know my eyes are cared for in every circumstance. Richard from Eyemasters is a master of eye wear. His vast experience and accumulated knowledge means that he can advise you on what you need AND what looks good on your face. He provides a personal, no stress service to give you the best ocular head wear that is different to the usual stuff on the high street. This all comes at a very reasonable price and excellent value. I highly recommend Eyemasters to see you right! Thanks Richard!
What an amazing service. I had glasses from specsavers and I got given pure metal glasses and they were unable to help me with the pain behind my ears. Richard knew exactly what to do and gave me the best slick finish on them so the design wasn’t compromised and no more pain behind my ears! Richard even fitted my glasses so they stopped falling down my face. Fab service and saw me the same day of contacting. X
Currently on my second pair of varifocals from Richard. From hating wearing glasses a couple of years ago and always taking them off and leaving them in random places, I now love wearing the modern and well - fitting pairs I have. There is a breathtaking range of frames from which to choose but unlike many high street opticians, the range comprises huge variety, from traditional through to fun and funky and ending with some outrageously 'stand out from the crowd' pairs. You're not left to gaze through shelves of frames wondering where to start but carefully guided, from your own ideas, through an adventure of new looks until arriving at a pair with which I can guarantee you will be delighted. Richard's flexible appointment system means there really is a time which will suit you and his attention to detail and aftercare, if required, means that you can be 100% positive you will come away a most contented customer. Your only difficulty might be which frames to choose but with his competitive pricing you might just be able to buy 2. I recommend you give Eyemasters a try next time you change your specs!

In my experience, Richard at Eyemasters takes time to listen and establish your need and requirements and finds a solution to fit. With the growing need to spend more time on my PC, I needed a solution to reduce eye strain and give more clarity when reading the screen and the ability to also use the keyboard without changing glasses. All my requirements have been met. Thank you Richard for your time and great service.
I've used Richard from Eyemasters for myself and my partners glasses for the last couple of years now. What's different about Eyemasters is that they don't offer the same boring old glasses from the high street. Richard will also advise on the best suited frames and lenses options. All you need to do is take a recent eye test with you.
I recently also had an issue with my glasses where I thought I'd scratched them and once again Richard was great. I dropped them off and got them back within a few days. Expecting to have to pay for new lenses Richard explained that something on the coating had come off and it was under warranty. Richard at Eyemasters is I expect when working with another business honest, trustworthy, reasonable and friendly. Thanks Richard!
I recently went to Richard of Eyemasters to get my first pair of varifocals ( having been tested and quoted for at a high street opticians). As always Richards' attention to detail and care were second to none, we found the perfect frames for my face shape, occupation and style, and the order went in, (the quote incidentally was less than the equivalent standard quoted by the high street option).
Needless to say I'm thrilled with my new pair of glasses, Richard explained thoroughly how to look after them properly and also managed my expectations of how to get used to them - although actually i got used to them very quickly and don't know how i got through the last couple of years without them! Thank you Richard once again... no doubt i'll be back... prescription sunglasses next on the list!
BEFORE THE SUN GETS THE BETTER OF YOUR EYES... 31/03/2021
So many people wait until the sun is high in the sky before thinking of sunglasses, which is rather missing the point. Low winter sun can be trying, especially in the car on a wet road, but there are many...
