I have been a customer of Prince & Bates for over 30 years and couldn’t want any more from an optician. I have known Laurie for 40 years whom is now a partner within the business and her knowledge, personality along with her always there to help attitude is brilliant to say the least. My quite severe prescription is out of the parameters of UK manufacturers, yet Laurie has still managed to source thinner and lighter lenses for me, my previous lenses coming from France and my current ones coming from Japan. I couldn’t feel in better hands and more confident with my eye care, many times Prince & Bates have gone above and beyond to get my vision the best it can be.
