What Our Customers Say

The team at Seen have looked after us for several years & it is a great experience every time. The eye test is the most thorough I have had anywhere - I always have confidence they will get my prescription right, which cannot be said for other opticians I have tried over 27 years of wearing glasses. By far the best thing is their selection of frames & the skill with which they recommend ones to suit you. My last few pairs were ones I perhaps wouldn't have taken off the shelf but they are absolute experts in knowing what suits your face & style. I get compliments on my glasses most weeks from people I meet & I am always keen to share where I got them from. Cannot ask for a better experience from the whole team, they treat you like one of the family from start to finish. Highly recommended!

These scans are beneficial for everyone, but if you’re over 50, have a family history of genetic eye conditions like Glaucoma, you have a high prescription or suffer a sudden onset of blurred vision, we'd highly recommend them. 

To upgrade your eye test to include an OCT scan, it’s £20. Find out more about them here and select 'Eye test with OCT scan' from the options below to include one as part of your eye test.
