What our customers say


Despite constant and heavy advertising pressure from the big chains, people really appreciate the benefits of choosing their local independent optician.

Our reporter went out onto the streets of Liverpool and Manchester to ask people why they chose and stick with their independent SPECS network optician.

It seems that people love the choice, quality, and relationship on offer from their local optician. Watch the video to see what they said.
