Why Choose Us

We know that choosing an optician and new glasses can feel like a challenge, and if you haven’t been to see us before, you may be wondering if we are the right optician for you.

To help make your decision easier, we like to let you know exactly what you can expect, and below are just some of the reasons why our clients choose to come and see us.

Our Advanced Eye Exam

When you come to see us, you’ll receive a 45-minute advanced eye examination with a senior Optometrist.

We offer longer appointment times than frequently found at other opticians, with time to clearly explain the results of your eye exam and answer any questions you may have.

This extra time allows us to learn more about YOU, and what your needs and preferences are, meaning you’ll get the most effective advice and solutions because it’s tailored specifically to you.

Our Eyewear Experts

Choosing new glasses can feel like a challenge, and self-select systems can leave you feeling bored and frustrated after trying on hundreds of frames at random.

Our Eyewear Styling Consultation takes the hassle out of selecting eyewear, and will make your search for new glasses an enjoyable and effortless experience. So rather than you having to work your way through a sea of frames, we’ll sit down together, have a chat, and then we’ll use our expertise to carefully select frame styles that will suit your face shape, your taste, and that will look great on you.

Our expert team will guide you through the process of choosing your new eyewear, making it easier for you to make a decision on what is right for you, and feeling confident in what you choose.

Our Eyewear Styling Consultation is the perfect way to discover what styles of eyewear are right for you, in a no pressure, no obligation, relaxed environment.

Our Eyewear (Which You’ll Love Wearing!)

If you’re looking for something different than what you find on the high street, then these frames are for you.

We work with small, niche, independent eyewear brands, which prioritise style, quality, and comfort over mass production. Our high quality, handmade collections are available in only a small number of practices across the UK, offering you unique, stylish and timeless eyewear.

We believe your eyewear should be as unique as you, which is why we don’t do mass produced logos and labels. Just superior quality, ethical, handmade, eyewear from the world’s best independent designers.

Our Flexible Payment Options

At Summers Independent Optician, we like to give you choices, which is why we’ll always give you several frame and lens options that will work best for your needs.

Choosing how much you want to invest in your new frames and lenses is also an important decision to make, and to help avoid having to compromise or delay getting the best eyewear for you, we offer flexible payment options.

Our flexible payment options allow you to spread the payments for your glasses over three to six months with no interest and no credit checks.

When ordering your glasses, just ask a member of our team about our flexible payment options.
