Buying your specs from Eyemasters is quite simply an enjoyable experience. Being of an age where I wear glasses permanently it's undoubtedly important that eyewear feels comfortable as well as looking good, and that I can see clearly! My recent experience of the high street providers is that they'll pretty much leave you to browse and make your own choices. This isn't the best option... Richard will take time - as much as you need - to advise on the best specs taking into consideration stuff like hair & eye colour, face shape & so on... Am delighted with my new specs - they're different and yet I've had numerous complements in just a few short days.
Fantastic service from Richard, top class at less than high street prices. Nice to fine a professional that advises what you need rather than what is best for his pocket.
Excellent range of glasses, very knowledgeable staff who enabled me to enjoy varifocals for the very first time, having tried before many times. Richard chose an excellent pair of glasses for me from an extensive range and I love them.
After meeting and hearing Richard talk about his business, it was clear that he knows his stuff. I was after a robust but stylish set of glasses for work on my construction sites. We set up a meet at his studio in Pett, all I had to bring was my prescription. We discussed options, colour and styling at a relaxed pace, a truly new experience for me. I placed an order which was ready to collect in no time. The whole experience was enjoyable and professional and I would strongly recommend Eyemasters to anyone who is seeking to replace their glasses. Regards Alan Norton Equilibrium building Solutions
Eyemasters offer an amazing service, a world away from high-street chains who seem to just want to take your money. Richard is a consummate professional who knows an awful lot about eyes, glasses and the way the two should fit together! Anyone looking for replacement specs or lenses should make the journey to his well equipped office. No pressure, honest opinion and a wealth of knowledge, along with very competitive pricing is a winner in my book. I'm a convert. Won't go anywhere else, even if I do live the other side of the country...
I recently visited Richard after a meeting him at a social event. The whole experience of visiting Eyemasters for new glasses was entirely enjoyable. The whole process was very laid back and and there was an extensive range of frames to choose from with Richard suggesting the best frames suited to me. I would highly recommend Richard to anyone who is looking for new glasses and have already done so.
Thank you Richard from Eyemasters for helping me with my first pair of reading glasses.. some great advice on the frame shape and personal service. I'm really happy with them. Would recommend Eyemasters for sure.. thanks again
My husband and I recently got our glasses from Eyemasters. We found Richard to have a good eye for what frames suited us best and not to mention his great knowledge. We are delighted with the service we received and the price was great, much better than the high street.
I met Richard Smith fairly recently when I needed to change my glasses. Up until now I have ‘played it safe’ and bought rimless glasses as I felt anything else may not suit me and I didn’t want ghastly glasses. I was go pleased to find someone who put me at my ease immediately, and most of all explained many a thing about glasses I never knew before ie. How a vary-focal lens works. I was able to try on frame styles I would have never been brave enough to have tried before, eventually choosing a frame I feel confident and proud to wear. I have had ‘wows’ over my new glasses and I have more self-confidence. I highly recommend Richard to anyone. A big thank you to Richard for changing the way I feel, all because of the glasses I wear every day.
With his extended background and expertise in lens technology Richard Smith produces first rate glasses at affordable prices. "He took the eye test data and with his skill created the best glasses I have ever had - and I have worn glasses for over 55 years." Nigel Wallis, Oxon
My husband and I have had glasses from Eyemaster for a number of years. We have found them to be of excellent quality with great and fast service. We thoroughly recommend Eyemasters for good quality glasses. Anne and Brian Munt.
A personal service offering high spec (excuse the pun) frames and lenses. All frames are designer and quite unique. Super choice. Fast and polite service. Thoroughly recommended. Richard Talbot. Customer (who can now see a lot better!).
Richard is very professional and knowledgable. Helped me with my new frames (as I love very specific type and also he sent it off to get my sides painted to different colour ) and lenses. All this in very short time and for very reasonable price.
Richard Smith is a gentleman providing a highly professional service , almost unique in this day and age. His knowledge and experience enable him to to provide an exemplary service, the place to go for eyewear that is right for the discerning individual. All this in a relaxed pressure free environment, at prices that would make anyone smile. Richard has been looking after my optical needs for many years and I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else even though I live in Hampshire. I cannot rate his business too highly. Catherine C.
What a refreshingly enjoyable time I had with Richard exploring frames that actually suit me. Richard has a huge selection to chose from, gives great advise in the relaxed comfort of his own studio, with no pressure and high street prices. Service, experience, knowledge and glasses that you can't find on the high street. I highly recommend this unique experience, There is no reason to go anywhere else but here.
Dealing with this company is a whole new experience for us who need glasses....for a start it's fun....secondly the company is reliable and honest and thirdly the back up when things go wrong is second to none. All you have to do is make an appointment, go along and with your prescription and get measured up and choose from a huge selection of frames then that's it. Anything that's not right or breaks just takes a phone call to sort out. Can't recommend the service highly enough.
My wife and I took our prescriptions to Eyemasters, where we met Richard who immediately made us feel at ease with his personal relaxed approach which was both informative and enlightening and most refreshing given the high street alternatives. My wife needed to replace lenses in a favourite pair of designer frames and I opted for a funky pair from the French Strukture range of hand made frames. We are both delighted with the end results and have no hesitation in recommending Richard and Eyemasters to anyone who appreciates quality products, expert advice and good service in a delightfully relaxed environment.
My wife and I use Richard who is one of the best in his field and we are very happy with the excellent advice and service we have received. I would recommend Richard to anyone seeking an expert opinion and a fair deal which you don't get that often in the vision filed.
Richard has the best collection of spectacle frames I've come across, with such a range of shapes and colours, The three pairs I've had (so far!) elicit lots of admiring comments and I couldn't go back to the High Street having seen what's available.
Richard offers a first class service and a great range of frames at a range of prices. He is very knowledgable and has a good eye for what suits you. I have been delighted with my glasses, as are other people to whom I have recommended Richard and Eyemasters.
I would thoroughly recommend Eyemasters to all. I've been getting my glasses from Eyemasters for a few years now. Richard provides a speedy bespoke service which is second to none offering good value for money and the personal touch. I'll never go to a high street provider again. Richard has my eye glasses business until the end!!!
I had an eye test and took my prescription to Eyemasters who made me my favourite pair of glasses to date. What I really like is that the experience was totally different to the my previous (numerous) high-street interactions. Richard clearly has a wealth of experience in his field and is able to deliver and expert service without leaving you feeling that you are being 'processed'. His premises is 15 minutes out of town and there was no time-pressure which is very refreshing and unique. I've recommended 2 family members to Richard and I can't imagine wanting to go back to the old way in the future. Thoroughly recommend Eyemasters.
