The optician who tested my eyes was exceptionally nice and Rita who helped me choose my glasses knows exactly what will suit you. My husband and I always make sure Rita is there before we make our appointment.
Mrs Ann W, 23 Jan 2018
All three lovely Ladies were as friendly, competent and helpful as anyone could wish and, as I was not best pleased to say "goodbye" to Clive Hazelgrove, whose Uckfield practice you bought out, and closed down, your staff had a bit of catchup to do when I walked in. Turned out I knew Lucie Baxter from my Uckfield days so we were off to the perfect start and never looked back.
Mr Ian H, 22 Jan 2018
All the staff the two of us saw were most helpful and efficient. We had moved to the area and this was our first consultation being 2 years since our previous optician appointment. Up to the standard of our previous optician in North wales who we had been with for 30 years.

These were for my daughter and I know where I'll be getting mine from when the time comes. I had an eye test while my daughter chose her glasses and it was by far the most customer oriented eye test I have experienced. Focusing on why my eyes were the way they were and getting the best prescription. I can't name anyone in particular, as they were all truly superb, please thank them all for me and for my daughter as she is also delighted! I will definitely be recommending Barracloughs! Thanks for all of your help!

Mr Gordon F, 5 Oct 2017
My Optician, Atefeh Javadnia was very thorough and explained everything clearly as she went through both my contact lens check and my eye examination. Atefeh was very complimentary of how well I have looked after my lenses which was nice to hear too. I was advised of when I will need my next contact lens check and also my next eye examination. The other members of staff in the shop were also helpful, particularly the gentlemen who adjusted my glasses fitting. This was the best Barracloughs visit so far. Many thanks.
Mrs Rachel E, 5 Oct 2017
I was very impressed with the care the optician, Antoinette Bottrill, took on both occasions in examining my eyes. During the recent eye test, she identified a very slight change, which will be incorporated with the new, second pair of spectacles I have ordered. Another member of staff then helped me to choose frames for the new pair, when she also took great care to find me exactly what I wanted. I would certainly recommend Barraclough’s to anyone needing attention to their eyes, not only for their professional skills but for their care and courtesy.

I was very impressed by both the man who tested my eyes and the man who took over the process from him after the eye test. I'm sorry but I didn't make a written note of either of their names. They were both very thorough. They obviously took into account a very bad experience I had with my previous optician, and I now appear to have a much more comfortable pair of glasses. Thank you.

The first to have my glasses straightened when I got tangled in a tree - front office young lady was charming and happy and so was lady who fixed me up. second time was to have an eye check - optician was also companiable, explained what he was doing, and who and left me completely confident.

Taking photos of the back of my eye and explaining something I felt the hospital should have, my eye test done, expertly, and I'm off to chose my frame. I was dealt with professionally, and helped to choose my frame, so it suited me. Measured up and now will await for the call to collect my new glasses. I would not consider going anywhere else.

Mr David J, 3 Mar 2017
I would like to thank all your staff in Uckfield. I came to Lizzie with a difficult request for help on getting some specialised eye tests done for visually impaired sport sight classification. Although the tests I was asking for were not all available at Barracloughs, she worked tirelessly to find anywhere in the country that could do them. When I came for my acuity and field appointment yesterday both Amanda and Atafeh were their usual professional and friendly selves. As well as making sure the correct tests were done on my eyes they also made sure that my sight classification form was correctly filled out.
Mr Christopher B, 1 Mar 2017

I found all the staff very welcoming and warm but the woman whom has short brown hair and wears glasses is particularly lovely in her way
Mrs Janet H, 28 Feb 2017
I have been coming to the battle branch since 2006...the staff have always been 100% in their customer service and go that extra mile to help which is extremely rare these days and stands out .i know the staff have mostly changed but the service is still the same .my optician is David ( from New Zealand ) and gwylam ( spelt wrong sorry ) and avril are always so lovely. The only thing that I would change is as you walk in to the battle branch there is a tall stand blocking the view to the reception desk.
Mrs Joan K, 26 Feb 2017
I have been attending Polegate for some years and have always been impressed by the friendly service by the staff. Also the level of attention given to checking my eyesight has been excellent during all that time.
Mrs Hazel P, 25 Feb 2017

Excellent service as usual, first time I have met Charlotte, she was very polite, put me at ease and was very thorough with her work. I have been putting up with watering eyes for some time now and she made a suggestion which I took up and have been amazed with the result. After only two days my right eye has almost stopped watering and the left is showing a remarkable improvement. Please pass on my thanks to her and I will continue with the treatment. Also the lady who fitted my new glasses was very helpful when making my choice of frames.
Mrs June S, 16 Feb 2017

Couldn't have been much better except if you'd been able to fix the weather when I left to make the sun shine.
Mr Graham P, 8 Feb 2017
Excellent service, as always. The difference that a highly professional and experienced Optometrist makes is not easy to fully quantify. As a wearer of specialist scleral gas permeable lenses (Bausch & Lomb Maxim CV) it is essential to find an Optometrist who is confident working with such a lens. Thankfully, you have Jenny Saunders - who I have always found to be superb. Thank you.
Mr Alan B, 31 Jan 2017
Easy to book appointment on website and excellent customer service during appointment
Mr James S
Professional, friendly, personal service as always. You are treated as an individual not as part of a production line. Thank you
Mrs Susan A
I'm delighted to have the opportunity to give feedback; I intended to email to do so anyway. My visit yesterday, as all my previous visits to your Uckfield branch, was superb. Having worked in optics I appreciate the quality of and attention to detail given by your optoms in particular. On both occasions they were professional, experienced and reassuring. Your dispensing and reception staff are friendly, polite and confident. The all-female staff adds a nurturing energy to the environment. I have recommended your branch to others, and will continue to do so. Please pass my appreciation on to all concerned.
Ms Dian S
Very good customer service, pleasant, helpful, efficient staff. I found myself having to find a new optician after 30 years of seeing the same one, so I was a bit apprehensive and anxious but the staff in Battle made me feel very welcome, there was a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
Mrs Karen O
I was very pleased with the whole experience. Everybody was welcoming, helpful and polite. I was particularly pleased with my eye test which was carried out on time by a highly knowledgeable, professional and approachable optician. I'll be back
Mr Dennis B
The initial response from your receptionist on the phone was warm and friendly, the tests were carried out efficiently and explained to me very clearly, as was the follow up advice about types of lenses available.
Mrs Louise D
Extremely helpful, efficient and friendly.
Mrs Erika J
I was seen on time and the appointment was a very pleasant experience. I didn't need to change my glasses but I was pleased that you were able to clean and tighten up my existing pair. Next time I will use the online booking system as this seems like a very efficient process.
Miss Emily H
The friendly and relaxed yet still professional approach by all staff, the ladies on the counter, Gwyllam and the Optician himself, made my appointment a pleasant experience!
Mrs Simon L
The care taken by experienced personnel. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you, I will be back.
Mrs Dorothy D
We have always been more than satisfied with the expertise of the opticians - on this occasion Charlotte - and the support staff - perhaps it is invidious to single out anybody - but Rita is a gem. The follow up service is also thorough and prompt.
Mr Adrian W
I only attend on check up examinations but I always feel well appreciated a' cared' for by your team. There is always a cheery smile and a welcoming hello even on the coldest mornings as it was when I visited last week.I had a new consultant for my eye test who was very informative explaining areas of new equipment which had changed since my last visit. Katie I have known for nearly 7 years and is like a friend. My husband had several problems with his glasses and they were dealt with quietly and efficiently. Thank you for your service. Carole Williams.
Mrs Carol W
I found the optician to be very thorough and really pleasant I would definitely recommend your company to my friends. Very pleased with whole experience.
Mrs Kathleen S
My daughter suffers from anxiety and went for her first eye test having been experiencing headaches. We were seen by Charlotte who was fantastic with Willow making the whole experience fun. I would certainly recommend her to my friends and family.
Absolutely nothing more has to be done , I have no complaints only praise, Nigel, John and Karen are wonderful.
Mrs Tracy R
The staff at Seaford are very kind & responsive to my needs - nothing is too much trouble! The service is fantastic & I would recommend them to anyone who needs an optician.
Mrs Felicity L
Everyone was so helpful and pleasant. The optician put me at my ease straight away and talked me through the whole procedure. He was reassuring, explaining my condition in easy to understand terms Excellent service.
Mrs Jude H
Mr. Dearie was friendly, professional and thorough in testing my eyes after I had mistaken a nail glue dropper for eyedrops. (He was able to reassure me that there would be no lasting damage as I had cleaned it off well.) I was impressed with his simple and clear explanations of my prescription and exactly how that impacts on my ability to see without spectacles. I was glad that I could be seen without notice. I feel very lucky all round and will certainly go back to Barracloughs for my next eye test.
Mrs Stephanie M
Staff very friendly and helpful. Gwlym Francis always goes the extra mile to help find the right frames, he even remembered the sort of glasses I like despite not needing new ones for nearly 4 years. He also clearly knew your stock very well.
Miss Judith N
I was really grateful you could fit me in so quickly to check my eyes when I was having problems that morning. The optician was really friendly and checked my eyes thoroughly which was very reassuring.
