Recently visited chessington world of adventure and had trouble with my contact lense where it had torn while in. Popped into the Optical Gallery on the off chance they could help, what great service... saw me straight away and in 10 minutes had a check up and was on my way to the park with replacements. Would really recommend this options friendly and professional especially as the only driver far away from home...

Great service and very friendly staff. They weren't pushy like the chain opticians. Would definitely go back for more glasses. Thank you!

Amy Nye (Facebook) 5* 16th March 2016

Excellent service from every member of staff at Hook. Would highly recommend them

Philomena Fortune Smith (Facebook) 5* 29th March 2016

I've been coming here as long as I've had a pair of eyes and the service is fantastic. They're now entrusted with the eyes of my offspring as well

Since having my eyes tested at The Optical Gallery over 20 years ago I have had an annual reminder for my eye check up. They have recently got some very trendy frames but I am pleased to say that they still keep the styles for us OAP's. I always feel welcome when I visit and when I lost my glasses they were able to make a pair for me the very same day. I have always found the Optical Gallery good value for money for the good service I have received.

John Bramwell (Facebook) 5* 6th Sept 2017

Iv got my contact lenses from here for the last 3 years. The prices are excellent! The service is 10/10! They have a massive selection of Ray Ban sunglasses which specsavers and boots don't have.

Luke Robeson (Facebook) 5* 16th March 2016

If you want glasses this is the place to go for me and the whole of my family have been going to Optical Gallery for over 10 years, they are really helpful,reliable and will listen to what your requirements are.Dont bother going anywhere else ,highly recommended.

Morina Bramwell (Facebook) 5* 16th March 2016

I have purchased glasses from the Optical Gallery over the past five years and have been very satisfied with the service I have received. The staff have always been very helpful and the glasses and sunglasses collection has always been great to select from.

Isaac Britto (Facebook) 5* 15th March 2016

Excellent, very helpful and polite staff. Testing was quick and efficient and very flexible with appointments. The selection of glasses were very good and reasonably priced.

Sean Waller (Facebook) 5* 15th March 2016

Really helpful staff and excellent service. Exceptional speed on processing my glasses at very competitive prices. Would highly recommend The Optical Gallery.

Great staff 1000% recommended

Alan Medcalf (Google +) 5* 3rd March 2017

The Optical Gallery is the best local place for a friendly, helpful, professional service. The premises have been recently revamped and look fantastic. This family run business has always found a solution for my sight and I won't go anywhere else. It is pricey but if you want unique designer frames that make you feel fabulous (rather than the frames everyone is wearing from high street discount sellers) please come here.

Margot M (Google) 4.5* 25th July 2017

Know their stuff. Make you feel welcome and comfortable.

Mario is a star! If you have a multi-focal prescription and want to wear contact lenses he is the man to see. My previous optician had told me it wasn't possible to wear contact lenses with my prescription which had just moved from a light reading prescription to a light multi-focal. I wasn't satisfied with his explanation so did a bit of research and was recommended to Mario at The Optical Gallery. Within an hour he had me sorted trying different contact lens options. He is so helpful, honest and informative, I can't recommend enough.

Jacqui Taimitarha (Google) 5* 20th September 2015

Marios sorted my contact lenses out big time about twenty years ago when I was having all sorts of problems. Although I moved 50 miles away over fifteen years ago I've been going back to him ever since. He really takes the time & makes sure he's giving you exactly the right product. He has knowledge & experience that you won't find elsewhere but also keeps up to date. I wouldn't even consider going to another optician.

Uplands Park (Google) 5* 5th July 2015

I've been going for years. Always excellent service; polite and thorough.
