I went to Richard for some new polarised glasses that stop the glare from inside the windscreen which are brilliant! I travel long journeys with my work and wouldn't do without them. If you are a rough tough tradesman you need a pair of these!!! I would definitely recommend Richard to anyone for glasses as this man is so knowledgeable!
I am now on my fourth pair of spectacles from Richard, he is so professional and really knows his stuff. My night glasses are brilliant as I would not drive in the dark due to these new neon headlights, but Richard has really made an impact on my life as I now drive at night. Dont delay go and see Richard today!
I consulted Richard Smith about new glasses after he attended one of my lectures & left message in my shop afterwards saying, ‘Great talk. Shame about the rubbish glasses’. And he was right! Richard was professional charm personified & didn’t try to steer me…well, only towards frames & lenses that suited my taste & needs. He also told me they were strong. And he was correct about that too as they escaped unscathed after a recent smash-up that left my car significantly worse off! Thanks, Richard.
Just visited Richard Smith again at Eyemasters and was amazed by the choice of incredible frames he carries. None of the High Street Opticians have anything to compare and you know you'll get plenty of compliments on your choice, as well as knowing that someone really cares about the way you look instead of the usual "have a look at our range of frames and pick what you like!" His attention (and prices!) are second to none and you'll end up with something stylish and unusual on the end of your nose!
Highly recommended service! Richard really considers your needs to match you up with the right glasses. Choose from a range of quality glasses you won't find elsewhere, some are even hand-made.
I met Richard at a networking meeting and we got chatting about his (very funky) glasses. I mentioned the problem I was having with using my laptop and my varifocals and he explained his solution. So when I needed some new glasses I contacted him. No sales spiel just a concern to find something that looked good on me and met my requirements. All simple, friendly, professional and relaxed. When I picked them up I was delighted - they fitted perfectly and I have had people make positive comments - when they would never have noticed before. I won't be using anyone else.
Eyemasters does it again! I now have a pair new night vision glasses which help me see better whilst driving by not being blinded by oncoming headlights. Richard gives a fantastic service and is very reasonably priced for the specialist unique frame selection, optical knowledge and range of products he offers. If you haven't been to see him yet, why not?!
Saw Eyemasters recommended on Best of Hastings and made appointment to get my new specs. Believe the hype! Richard is friendly, knowledgeable and takes the time to make sure you get the best frames and glasses to suit. I have had loads of compliments! Would not hesitate to recommend.
I have worn glasses for many years but this was the first time I had the confidence to go for something a little different. Richard is extremely knowledgeable in his field and helps choose a frame from his extensive selection, taking into account your face shape and colouring, When ordering he even made the adjustments on his stock frame as opposed to the final frames - resulting in no damage to the lens or to the frame. Great friendly service and comes highly recommended. Avoid the highstreet at all costs!!
I bought a pair of sunglasses through Eyemasters, and I have been delighted. Richard's expertise and extensive product range meant I could be confident in my choice. The bespoke service and attention to detail that Eyemasters deliver is unlike anything on the high street. I would certainly recommend!
I would highly recommend Eyemasters, Richard makes the whole process easy for you matching the right Spec's to your individual face and eyebrow shape ,hair colour etc, I wasn't confused by being given many different pairs to choose from as you would on the high street, just a selected few which suited me, With all Richards years of experience he knows what suites you best, his service is fantastic, Thank you Richard
This is the best experience at purchasing new glasses that we have ever had. Plenty of frames to choose from, no rush, expert advice and a lovely atmosphere. Richard puts you at ease immediately and gives you so much confidence that you are able to try things you may have been too nervous to consider otherwise. Which meant that we came away with amazing spectacles that enhance our features and also look stylish. Not only are the frames that Richard stocks to die for, his prices are very reasonable. So much so that my husband was able to purchase two pairs of glasses for the same price as he would have paid for one pair on the high street. We will recommend Eyemasters to anyone that listens and we couldn't be happier with the service we received.
I have been supplied with new glasses for office / computer use from Eyemasters in Pett and they are great. Richards attention to detail is outstanding.
Very pleased with specs and standard of service. Faultless and impressive. Specs are always a good fit and of a high standard
My first pair of glasses from Eyemasters, which I have been really impressed with. The service Richard provides is excellent and I am really please with the glasses. I will be using him again and would definitely recommend him to others. James
I would highly recommend Eyemasters. Richard is brilliant at knowing which glasses suit a particular face shape, eye colour, skin colour and hair colour. He used his vast experience to help me choose glasses that I would never have been able to get in a high street store. The frames he has available are wondeful and allow you to express your personality. I will never go back to the high street for glasses - Eyemasters is the only company I will use.
As a newly qualified 22 year old teacher I needed a new pair of glasses that would still suit me & at the same time be suitable for my position as a teacher. Eyemasters had many glasses to choose from & I'm extremely happy with the pair I choose. The inside of the frames being pink, keeping my identity & the outside a more wooden grain look, keeping my professionalism in tact. Richard was great in the advice he gave & the patience he gave me whilst trying on many galsses from his vast range. I cant recommend him enough for the young professional wanting to still 'be them'
" Id like to let you know how very pleased I am with the service I have received from Richard Smith from Eyemasters, I always look for design in whatever I am buying but with specs its very difficult to find something different that stands out from the crowd, that are beautifully made and different but since meeting Richard at Networking I have been delighted to receive outstanding service in all my dealings with him, High recommended " Wendy Lamb Touchstone Financial
Great service from Richard at Eyemasters. Varifocal sunglasses required only a week before going on holiday and Eyemasters answered the call with the specs turning up with two days to spare. Perfect fit and vision, plus Richard's witty comments to keep us entertained. Thanks Eyemasters!
Superb service, wide range of unique frames, great prices & makes sure you feel good when you leave his showroom. Should have gone to Eyemasters years ago.
"Having been used to visiting high street opticians Richard’s approach to glasses, and his friendly and helpful attitude, was a breath of fresh air. His knowledge and experience of the industry is immediately apparent and leaves you feeling reassured that you getting the best product to meet your needs. As for the range of glasses on offer, there really is a style to suit everyone and Richard takes the time to find them. He suggested a totally different style to that which I have worn for the last few years and he was completely right. I had never had compliments on my glasses before I got a pair from Richard. Richard’s pricing structure reflects his character, no nonsense, and beats the high street hands down. The price however pales in comparison to the value you will receive at Eyemasters so give Richard a call and find out for yourself."
Richard has a vast collection of frames, from the conventional to the definitely unusual! He also has a talent for spotting what might suit an individual - often something you would never have thought of, but which looks great (I have two such pairs). His showroom is a large, light and airy room in his own home. There is no time pressure, and none to buy - but you will, because the frames are fabulous, the lenses really high quality, and prices beat the High Street hands down. For the first time in 30 years of wearing contact lenses, I have found spectacles which are comfortable and flattering enough to wear all day; I also have a pair with blue tinted lenses for computer use, which greatly reduce the fatigue associated with long hours in front of the computer. If you need - or would merely like - a new pair of specs, Richard's your man.
Truly individual attention given to everyone in our group. A relaxed atmosphere in which to choose your frames, and there are lots to choose from. I would thoroughly recommend Eye Masters in Pett.
I've know Richard through meeting him in networking groups. He is a wonderful conversationalist and a rare gem in this world as you can tell right away "This fellow knows his stuff". Both my wife and I bought 2 pair of specs each from him. He has a vast selection to choose from at his professional studio at home. As an added value, I purchased a pair of drivewear specs due to my time on the road, and my wife purchased a pair of glasses for working in front of the computer. A few days into wearing them we have wondered why the normal high st optician we've been seeing for decades has never recommended them. The bonus is we've saved a bundle, saving a few hundred pounds for the amount of kit we walked away with. I don't leave reviews for people often, but don't mind doing so now. I'll refer everyone to him that I can. We now consider him our family optician.
The 'blue tinted' glasses for computer work are amazing, the other three pairs are as superb as usual. Don't leave the country - couldn't manage without you!
