My son Harry was devastated when the school suggested he should have his eyes tested. After asking around we were recommended to Alan Tyler's. From start to finish the staff and opticians put him at ease and made the experience fun. He loves his glasses and now sees what he has been missing!!! A big thank you to all of your staff.
I knew there was something wrong with my vision. Thanks to the new OCT machine, the trained Alan Tyler optician was able to highlight the problem in an instant.
We would like to thank ALL the staff at Alan Tyler Opticians for the superb and attentive service that we received on our recent visit to your shop. We have as usual been treated to faultless advice and support. With the friendly manner and professionalism you extend to all your customers we would not hesitate to recommend your service to others.
A big thank you to all the staff at Alan Tylers. After years of wearing varifocals and having to put up with distorted and limited vision I finally the vision I have always wanted with the new Varilux lenses that was advised by the dispenser. They are perfect.
A professional but enjoyable experience. The test was thorough, and the options of frames etc to suit are good. Any problems after are quickly and efficiently resolved. The whole process was a pleasure.
