Im not sure why things are as they are in the world of opthalmic care as opticians are a healthcare provider not just a retailer (your GP will if relevant, say go to your optician ) . I came to GoodLookingOptics Hoping that I may have stumbled upon a long saught after opticians that can be trusted , is transparent and fairly priced- unfortunately the quest continues. Gary does indeed talk the talk but sadly his business does not walk the walk. He seems more focused on providing a good image and sweet talking rather than the actual quality of service.
I do not say this optician is strikingly bad-its just that it s as bad as they get whilst claiming to be different.
The same issues around, lack of transparent pricing, unclear explenations (where needed lies), not making it clear if voucher used etc.can probably be found elsewhere-
Inattentivness-I was not given a full assesment (e.g. the blow test) despite saying I had cause for concern health wise (migranes).
I just had high hopes that Garys business (since he himself appears so likeable and so passionate about businesss) would be different but it is not.
I choose Good Looking Optics because I saw good reviews on the internet.
Instead of good service and prices,I got ripped off and end up paying more then I will ever imagine(even though I got their leaflet with various discounts which was completely useless in the end).
Every information about prices I got was confused and every employer told me different things.
I got impression that Gary and his stuff are sweet talk and kind untill time for paying come,then you got much higher price then you already been told,and everything happen in a rush without any explanation why is that.
One of his employers tried to assure me to by lenses in a wrong power-with explanation that they are not producing lenses in my power but power they got is similar with mine(?!),which is really unprofessional.
After all I am really dissapoint and I won't go to Good Looking Optics ever again.
