What Do We Ask As Optometrist: To Take Us Seriously

Be prepared that eye care is not what many media adverts convey

Providing eye care is not merely selling spectacles

Eye Examinations are highly technical procedures, not a “special offer“

Respect that we do business - properly and professionally

Respect that we are a business that provides a living to many, and takes your needs seriously
