Optician Comparison – home visit opticians vs high street opticians

In these unprecedented times of the COVID-19 pandemic we wanted to reassure you that a routine eye test with us is the equivalent, if not better, than going to your regular high street opticians such as Vision Express, Boots or Specsavers. We are your local opticians who do home visits and we want to make you feel happy and safe when you choose us as your mobile optician. Check out our optician comparison below for more details of the benefits you will receive from us and see what makes us different from the high street opticians.
