Friendly, honest, quick

Graciano Soares
I am so impressed with the service I received from Hassocks EyeCare! Having requested a new pair of spectacles, within three days I have received a new pair - matched very similarly to my previous   pair (and they fit very comfortably), to my front door! Thank you Vickie for researching, ordering and delivering the spectacles to me - I am so impressed and very grateful to you. Many thanks to all the staff involved in the process.
Jenny Deacon

Pleasant and caring attitude.

John Hulse

Excellent friendly service.

Paul Hatley

Everything went very well and my new glasses are perfect!

Joanna Kaddish

All the staff are simply amazing.

Anna Andrews

Punctual and thorough examination then good advice for my glasses. A quick turn around on glasses.

Lynn Binns

Chris was very helpful in fitting my new glasses and making sure they were comfortable. Everyone is always so friendly.

Celia Pridell

Eye testing extremely thorough and patient. Advice and help with lens and frame choice extremely helpful, knowledgeable and patient. I am short-sighted and require varifocals these days, so the choice and fitting of the lenses is important to me. Even repaired my old broken glasses for an unexpectedly low price to use as spares. Would highly recommend.

Stephen Gamblen

At the age of 73 this was my first ever eye test so did not know what to expect but Paul explained everything to me so it was very easy.

Kenneth Moore

Delighted with the lens inserts for my ski goggles. I had no idea such things existed until Chris told me about them. Now I can see the time, the piste-map, the mountains and the moguls all in clear focus. Thank you.

Mary Gibbens

Eye Test very thorough. I needed new prescription sunglasses & everyone was very helpful in getting these through quickly, so that I had them for my holiday.

Jill Bowen

I have seen William for many years and so came to you opticians, and I must say how friendly all the ladies were on my visit.

Angela Laundon

Very friendly and professional team.

Michael Kiernan

Procedures explained in full and very friendly service from all staff.

Diane Paton

Your reception staff are always polite and friendly as is Chris with the fitting.

Philippa Smith

Punctual appointment. Good care and attention and advice.
