Professor Diane R. Von Helmholtz and Mrs Bryda Von Helmholtz

I would like to thank Spectacular Opticians for their professional approach and the ongoing support that they have given me over the last few years. I was having constant problems with my eye sight, until I received a very thorough sight test from one of their Optometrists, and now I can live and work in extreme comfort.


Mrs Daphne Gilby, Chatteris

Spectacular Opticians, thank you for the professional help and support received by my team this week. Our glasses are lovely and we are very pleased with the service, efficiency and price.


Odette and all at Brides by Solo, Newmarket

The young lady attending to me was exceptional with the time and care she took over my difficulty. I just wanted to say a special thank you for the hour you spent looking after me.


Mr Michael Stone

A huge thank you to your Downham Market branch who fitted me in at very short notice today when I presented with a painful eye. Both Tesco and Specsavers refused to see me until next week once they had established I wasn’t after a ‘standard’ eye test, despite me clearly being in pain. The receptionist at Downham couldn’t have been more helpful, and the optician gave up part of his lunch break to see me. That’s what I call excellent customer service, well done.


Mrs Pauline Finnerty, Downham Market
