A refreshing change from the bigger chains that are always very busy and are running late. My appointment went smoothly, was on time and I felt the optician was really listening. The staff were excellent and in fact went out of their way to help me choose my glasses. I really recommend them. More...

Just visited the Chesterfield branch when my sons glasses broke. Even though they were clearly very busy, Diane was happy to help and quickly found a solution so my son would not be without them. Fantastic customer service

Your Newmarket branch were fantastic. I was recommended by a friend so she got £20 vouchers and I got a £10 eye test and 25% off frames which was a good start. Angela was very professional, friendly and thorough followed by the lovely Emma who possesses excellent customer service skills. I knew what style frames I wanted, she helped me to find them and they were far from the most expensive in your range, she actually listened to my requirements and not just sell me the most expensive frames. My glasses were ready in 3 days. I am very impressed by the service and speediness of my order. I will definitely be recommending Scrivens. More...

I recently moved to a new area. I needed to get my specs repaired. As a bus driver, it's important to see, you see. I visited Specsavers, and they tried to sell me a £159 set of varifocals. I went a further 50ft to Scrivens in Liscard and had them fixed in no time for a fiver. I need some prescription sunnies. See you soon Scrivens! No flannel - just 3 wonderful members of staff on hand. I've found my new Opticians. More...

My mum is staying with me in Chingford London and for the second time we have had to ask the assistance of the local Scrivens and each time been greeted by Melodee and her colleague. The are so kind and helpful even though my mum doesn’t use their branch as she lives in Norwich. They have sorted her hearing aid each time and when leaving always said anytime you experience problems please do not hesitate to come to call upon their services. Thanks again great service x More...

Place quite small and crowded. Friendly and helpful staff.

I used Scrivens for my hearing aids for several years. I always found them careful and considerate, as I have mobility problems, and provided quick and effective service.

After bad customer service to book appointment at SpecSavers, I made contact with Scrivens & spoke with Adam Wow customer service first class, very professional and caring on the phone, he couldn't do enough to make it possible for me to have an appointment at my convenience It really makes a difference to me as a potential customer that the first contact is friendly and professional, that sets me up for what to expect from the company Adam has such a great manner on the phone HE should be training all Scrivens employees on how to manage clients on the phone Thank you Scrivens you have made me happy and restored my faith in customer service Looking forward to my appointment tomorrow :) Have a Blessed Day

a very good experience at my local wimborne branch very friendly and glasses much more affordable than I expected thank you no pressure to pay out on certain products either



5 January 2019

Excellent and friendly service, as I have moved to area recently and was looking for a new 'local' optician. Thorough eye examination, very knowledgeable and helpful optician who took time to explain my prescription - and also had my current glasses checked for lens adjustment- very impressed and will go back again!

Scrivens in Havant have been brilliant. Thorough examination and helpful staff working out styles to suit me and recommendations for suitable varifocals. So impressed as never got on with varifocals before but their suggestions have been perfect so I now only need one pair of glasses instead of 3!!!! Thank you More...


David Dickson

Fantastic advice on selecting a pair of glasses. Opted for varifocal home & office lenses. I was even advised on which frames suited me best, turned out to be the cheapest (included in the lenses price). Thank you so much.

All the are very friendly and helpful in fact I actually prefer scrivens opticians to vision express because you feel that you are under any pressure to buy glasses that are very expensive and this suits myself and my fiance and some other people I know very good customer service would definitely say throughly recommended for anyone who needs glasses or a simple check up

Another great experience at Scrivens Feltham. Popped in to have my son’s glasses adjusted; he’s growing and they are pinching his nose. Both pairs adjusted. I asked to book a future appointment for his eye test and was given one just 20mins later. The optician was brilliant; very child friendly, which is extra helpful when your ASD child was not expecting to have an eye test that day. (He was brilliant too). Highly recommend. Will continue to use them even though we have more local opticians. 5star More...

A big thank you to Emma at your kings heath branch. My brother's glasses fell apart while we were out shopping, he is on crutches at the moment and can't get around too well. Emma kindly fixed them and would take no money even though we offered to pay for her time. The store wouldn't hear of it - thank you so much for the help More...

The hearing care specialist, who covers The Colne medical Centre in Brightlingsea Essex, was very helpful to my wife as she dropped off batteries and tubes to enable the hearing aids to continue working on Friday 13th October 2017, which was much appreciated.

We have always used the Sutton in Ashfield branch,cannot praise them enough.my daughter was diagnosed with keratconus after a referral from the optician and through this process they have been invaluable,only a phone call away for advice on contacts and fitting my daughter with the soft lens she needed.when we pass they always wave and remember my daughters name when we go in.these ladies are amazing at their job knowledgable happy and very professional make you feel at ease.after the diagonosis we still have eye tests with them and gained the information we needed from them that the hospital left out.its made me determined to raise awareness not only about my daughters disease but all eye care and have sighed myself and a friend up to run the great north run to raise money for fight for sight More...

I have been deaf (partially) all of my life.My hearing level has been described as moderate leaning towards severe. I am now a pensioner and I have had a couple of tries with aids over the years. My first was a boxy affair that fitted over the top of my clothes with the wires then going to my ears. It didn't last very long. However a trip to my GP turned into a blessing in disguise. I made an appt to see Scrivens the following week, had another appt 6 days later to pick up my new aids. OH my Gosh I so wished I had done this earlier, it would have made such a huge difference to myself and my family and work colleagues. I can hear the clock ticking, my shoes as they squeek on the kitchen floor and funnily enough I was standing outside my block of flats where I live with the security door shut and I heard my partner lock our front door - I was about fifteen feet away, It's loud it makes me jump sometimes, the kids scream at such a very high frequency ha ha it's totally mad but I love it. I didn't know how quiet my world was till I got my aids and for that I thank you. More...

William Parkes

Broke my main glasses cleaning them so I made a appointment to have a eye test & new glasses. Could not be more impressed when given a date a few days later, which was a thorough test only months after my last test which said my sight had changed within a few months, only 8 days later I had my new glasses and now my sight has improved when reading just by changing my glasses.

I would highly recommend Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care..... I was with another Optician for several years but the standard of customer service was appalling so I transferred to Scrivens, I thought I was on another planet.... The standard of care, attention to detail, and the help from happy staff was & continues to be wonderful..... Don't hesitate in getting an appointment. Maura More...

Chris Brooks

up till now I have found the service at our local shop to be very good. Glasses ordered from certain other big high street names have recently increased to 4 and sometimes 8 weeks . One lot even managed to loose my order ------twice. went to Scrivens and got glasses in less than one week, Not bad for varifocals. Maybe it is because they don't get them made in China as do the 2 big names and maybe other opticians. More...

I have been going to Scrivens for many years, so many I've lost count. The staff are so friendly and helpful. They always do their best with my difficult eye condition . I feel I get plenty of time for the thorough appointment, it is never rushed . I am always given a chat about what is best for my eyes. I would not go to a supermarket type leading chain store of shops as my husband did, he had lots of issues with his new glasses. Scrivens are always happy to sort out any problems if they arise without hesitation. Thank you to all the staff over the years. More...

The Staff at Northfield, Birmingham are very good, friendly and professional.

The staff in the Thirsk shop are brilliant, i have had to go back quite a few times with problems with my contact lenses ( my own fault ) they are always so friendly, kind and helpful. Top marks girls.



17 February 2012

I was a little sceptical going to Rayner as I had been to Specsavers for a few years. They were very cheap but the last pair of glasses I bought from them were very sub-standard. I felt like a change and wanted to stay local to my town so decided to try Rayners for my next test.The Rayner shop in Poulton isn't very big and to be honest could do with a bit of modernising, but the friendly and helpful staff more than made up for it.The test itself was very thorough and I felt very looked after. The optician seemed to know her stuff.I wear varifocals and after my test I was shown some glasses. I was impressed by the choice bearing in mind it's only a small shop. Having picked the glasses I wanted, the very nice chap talked me through lenses and I eventually made my choice.The glasses came quicker than they quoted and the lady in the shop was very helpful when I picked them up.The only gripe was I felt their prices were a little too high, but overall I'am very impressed. The quality is much better than other cheaper opticians but time will tell if the glasses last longer! I'll be going back next year but may be a while before I buy another pair of glasses from them!
