Excellent service! The staff was incredibly helpful for walking me through the options of the frames. They scheduled an eye test for me as well. Today I had the eye test with Nehali and she was absolutely fantastic. She walked me through the procedure, showing the results, what the machines were doing etc.. I'm really happy with the service and will definitely recommend.

Excellent service. Staff very polite and knowledgeable. I had one of the more extensive eye tests and was amazed at the amount of detail I was given. Recommended

I had forgotten my contacts prior to a work trip to London. The Eye Place were extremely helpful in getting me a pair of lenses for free. I probably would have paid for a full pack for both eyes given my high prescription but they didn't even try to sell me anything knowing that I'd only be in town for the day. If this is how they treat transient non-customers then I'm sure their real customers are in good hands.

Had a problem with my specs. They fixed them there on the spot at no charge even though i hadn't bought them there. Very friendly and well-informed with a great choice of upscale glasses. Will be going back next time I need a new pair or an eye test.
