Richard is a refreshingly unique character - you get no BS. Just a straight and honest answer to your questions. He runs his business in the same no-nonsense manner. It's great!
So if you have a current optical prescription, get yourself down to Richard (and he offers truly flexible hours) and see the range of frames available. And you can be confident that Richard won't let you walk out with something that doesn't suit you - like I said he's an honest man!
Richard made choosing the perfect pairs of spectacles for me easy. The first frames he showed me I chose for everyday wear and the second pair for sunglasses. Everyone I've met since having my new specs has commented positively, the best comment coming from a teenager I know "They're not old ladies glasses". With regard to the sunglasses, Richard did explain the science behind the lenses, suffice to say they are the best and most comfortable sunglasses I have ever worn.
I cannot recommend Eyemasters highly enough.
Richard took a lot of time and Trouble to help me select the frames which best met my requirements and suited me. He has a wide selection of frames which are not available in most high street optician shops. He offered a very good service geared to the individual
My Wife and I have received the most fantastic service from Richard. With a personal and professional service we both feel that we received the exact spectacles for our needs. Completely different to previous experiences on the High Street. Thanks Richard and we are telling everyone who will listen about your business.
Richard gave me a whole new perspective to choosing specs. His knowledge and flair for design are invaluable. In a relaxed atmosphere he helped me select a pair which, for the first time in many a year, I really feel are ‘me’. I recommend Richard to anyone who wants something more than the high street can offer at affordable prices.
What a professional and personal service at an affordable price. Eyemasters provides an alternative to the rip off high street chain opticians who charge excessive prices for a much poorer quality product.

I have now had two pairs of glasses from Eyemasters, and I have been highly impressed by both the service and the quality of the products. My needs were slightly unconventional, one being a clear pair of specs for cycling and general eye protection, and the other special sunglasses for driving. In both cases my requests were taken seriously and full consideration and proper advice was given to me about what I would need to get the best results and which frames would suit me most. Both glasses have been excellent. Richard Smith of Eyemasters gives the best service one could hope for, with a friendly demeanour and a professional approach that properly takes into account the individual needs of the customer. His obvious experience and understanding really shows and I would definitely use Eyemasters again in future.
Just got back from a club archery competition and did alright so paying for Jane’s glasses was not a problem! I am so glad you are able to sort her out. I am still amazed by the quality of my lenses. I have never had is so good so your talent a greatly appreciated.
I have bought several pairs of glasses from Richard, sometimes for different purposes, sometimes as an accessory; on each occasion Richard has thought about my reason for buying them and the way they will be used. He has a fabulous selection frames with a range of prices and also is up to date on the technology surrounding glasses; this has lead me buy glasses that filter out glaring headlights to sunglasses that change even behind glass when I'm driving. He has a real passion for his work and he wants you to think of glasses as a bit more than helping you see. I have no hesitation in recommending Eye masters as the must place to buy your glasses.
My wife and I have known Richard at Eyemasters for many years and can assure people that you will get great service and reasonable prices. Richard's expertise and professionalism is second to none. You can buy with complete confidence that the glasses will fit your needs perfectly.
A visit to Eyemasters is a whole new experience. It is very professional & personal. Richard knows his frames; I actually purchased the first pair Richard gave me to try on. The frame itself is of excellent quality. I highly recommend Eyemasters.
Richard from Eyemasters is fantastic! I ordered a pair of prescription sunglasses and Richard suggested some options. I went with a yellow pair of special polarised lenses especially good for driving in sunshine and bright lights. Well, I tried them today and my vision was unimpeded by the bright sunshine. I highly recommend Eyemasters for the specialist knowledge, reasonable prices and superb service. Thank you Richard.
Richard gives a very professional and personalised service at a great price. He has a fantastic selection of frames and seems to have all the time in the world to help and advise you with your choice of frames and lenses. Aftercare is great too. He sold me a second pair with lenses specially designed for working at the computer, which are fantastic. No more neck strain from moving my head around all the time to get into focus. I won't be going anywhere else for my next pair of glasses.
If you are looking for frames which are unique, recommended for your personality and lifestyle, and stylish, Eyemasters is the optical place to visit. In addition, Richard offers a personal consultation, at an extremely reasonable price. I have no hesitation in recommmending Eyemasters to anyone considering a new pair of glasses.
A very personal service provided by EYEMASTERS. Needed a pair of varifocal lenses. I was explained fully what to expect and how they work. It was great advice as it did take a few days to get used to them. My 22 year old daughter, new school teacher, also purchased a pair of specs and again the time that was given to her and the glasses she ended up getting were great. I highly recommend EYEMASTERS whatever your spec requirements are. Simply the best.
Charming personalised service. Apart from the wonderful range of frames on offer, attention to detail was the best I have ever experienced resulting in a product with which I am supremely happy. I have been wearing glasses for about 8 years now and have struggled with the whole concept anyway, being irritated that they 'get in the way' but I am actually enjoying wearing them now which is a fantastic result. The price was far less than I have paid elsewhere and believe me the product is of a very high quality. I shall not be going anywhere else. Thank you Richard!
Recently had an eye test, new glasses required! was quoted nearly £400 for new varifocal lenses with all the coatings for driving etc. fitted into my frames! I shopped around, but all similar price! Eventually went to EYEMASTERS in Pett Village and saw Richard Smith, his consultation on supplying new lenses to my prescription went very well, treats you with care and understanding, as a valued customer! eventually fitted me with new glasses, titanium frames and new varifocal lenses for £240
I am happy to recommend his services
Richard is excellent. He is very knowledgeable and explained how varifocals work in a simple and clear way. He took time to find frames that suited me and nothing was too much trouble. His prices are amazing too. I would not hesitate to recommend his services.
What a top company Richard sorted my Oakley sunglasses with prescription lenses i have had these glasses for over 20 years Oakleys X Metals very rare these days and i love them , Richard sorted these super quick and i am over the moon
i can now wear these for driving and cant thank him enough fantastic service great price, So if your looking for new glasses or just new lenses give them a call you will not be disappointing 10/10
Eyemasters has a great selection of frames to chose from that are stylish, different and most importantly very affordable. Richard is incredibly passionate, knowledgeable and helpful when it come to glasses. I wont go anywhere else now!
Richard was very helpful and gave straight forward advise when recommending the type of glasses I should have. He has a fantastic range on offer, at excellent prices. Can't beat the personal touch and advise you get.
I am really very pleased with the service and product I have from Eyemasters. Richard is very creative and can therefore offer solutions which the High Street cannot offer. Since my prescription had not changed from two years ago I had the opportunity to explore some additional options. I had my old, well loved frames from 10 years ago fitted with new lenses as computer/readers. They are the same prescription as my recent readers but they are clearer - the lenses are superior quality.
I also wanted some varifocal sunglasses - especially for driving. Richard suggested I had a graduated lense so that reading a map or a menu outside meant that I didn't have to remove them - great idea! They are still fantastic for protection despite the graduation. I chose a frame from the Struktur range made in France. They are beautifully made and I love them.
I also had a pair of glasses with yellow tinted lenses for driving at night. They reduce the glare from oncoming headlights and really help with driving tiredness. They also make a grey day brighter which increases visibility.
Richard is passionate about what he does and incredibly experienced in eye wear across the globe - just ask him how many countries he has worked in. The range of products covers classic to fashionable. He really takes time to get the right eye wear for you and, most of all - he cares. Great customer service is paramount to him and it comes through in everything he does. I recommend him wholeheartedly.
I asked Richard if a certain specific and unique idea was possible on a pair of glasses. He said "let's try!". Working with Richard from Eyemasters was easy, he is knowledgeable, offers great advice and gives a really unique service. I highly recommend Eyemasters for all you eyewear from the dull and boring, to the fancy and fun.
