And a few testimonials from our patients too who said about Penzer Opticians:

‘My current opticians closed. I am a person who is very nervous when it comes to any eye treatment after my mother had received laser treatment at a well known hospital and had lost her sight. I emailed Penzer opticians over the weekend explaining my fear and the circumstances not expecting a reply until Monday, but to my surprise I received a lovely reply from Joy. She was so understanding and I knew instantly this was the opticians for me. I called the shop on the Monday and the staff were lovely and friendly. They put me at ease and made me an appointment for the following day for a eye test. Tuesday arrived and I met the optician Cathy who was patient and put me at ease (even made me wonder why I was so scared). Joy came to check I was ok and together we picked my new frames. I have never received the service or kindness at any opticians that you showed me. I can’t thank you all enough for your kindness, time and will thoroughly recommend you’.

‘The best test I have ever had. I have highly recommended Penzer Opticians to our friends. My husband has decided to leave a well known high street competitor to come to Penzers too.’
