Here's what our patients have been saying about us:
"I have been a customer of G.R. Hardwick for over twenty years. I have always found them very professional from the Receptionist through to the Opticians and all the other members of staff that I have dealt with. Whatever is needed, I have always found them to go "the extra mile" for you."
"Very impressed with the consultation & service, the best eye examination I have had. I think it would be hard to improve. Thank you!"
"Having used another practice and being far from happy, it was a great experience to visit. I wish I had used G R Hardwick years ago!"
"The experience of my eye examination was much better than I remember from previous visits to a high street chain. I much prefer your opticians and am pleased I was recommended to you. Thanks"
"Just keep doing what you are doing; bright, cheerful, helpful, putting patients at ease. I have tried lots of opticians but you are the best!"
Our comprehensive eye examinations utilise the latest technology, such as Topcon OCT retinal imaging to ensure we provide you with the very best eyecare available.
Each person has his own lifestyle and requirements - which also includes vision. With Impression FreeSign® 3, we offer you the unique possibility to match your progressive lenses to your personal lifestyle. Rodenstock manufactures these progressive lenses completely individually on the basis of your vision profile-only for you.
We were one of the first opticians in the UK to take delivery of the ImpressionIST 3 3D video centering system to enable us to produce truly bespoke lenses based around the individual needs of our patients. Our new Rodenstock DNEye® Scanner was one of the first to be installed in the UK and allows us to carry out eye measurements with an unprecedented degree of precision.
Having built up an incredibly close working relationship over 20 years, we are proud to say we have the largest collection of Silhouette Eyewear to view, anywhere in the UK. The company was founded in 1964 and with the rimless, screwless, hingeless, and virtually weightless Titan Minimal Art, this Austrian family business revolutionized the eyewear market.
