If you haven’t already visited the new quirky fashionable opticians in Newcastle and you love your ”eyewear” then get yourself there pronto!
I went along for my eye test after seeing numerous posts of people in really funky glasses. I was due my test and wanted something a little different to my usual heavy black square frames. I had also had a previous bad experience going to a budget designer frame place which resulted in me having a bad fitting, designer, expensive frames that I could not wear as they did not fit my face.
On arrival, I was greeted by extremely friendly smiling staff who were instantly very attentive. The opticians itself was so quirky, stylish, warm and very inviting.
I was taking into a room to undergo my eye test. It was extremely in depth and they have all the latest technology, some of which I had never experienced previously.
After finding out my eyes had not worsened thankfully it was time to pick my frames. I knew I did not want anything like I have had before. The guys were really helpful passing frames which they thought would suit me, giving their honest opinion on each. The service, I felt was so personal. I was not just left to browse the shop floor, I had a one to one service with both members of staff, including the optician himself, helping me choose the perfect frames. The optician would check every frame I tried for fit and tell me if the frames were not fitting well.
I ended up choosing a grey bamboo frame which is so lightweight and trendy. I was not sure about this style, however, the guys helped me choose and they loved them and I have to agree that they were so right. When you try on so many styles it is so difficult to choose and I could have easily picked out at least 5 frames I loved but these just pipped the post for the unusual matte grey colour, bamboo material and that all-important second opinion.
Once the frames are picked, they are to be sent away for the lenses and this takes a couple of weeks. I was very excited when I got the call to tell me my glasses were ready to be picked up
I went to collect and they were adjusted to fit, again the staff were full of smiles and happy to spend time making sure I was completely happy before I left. I love my new glasses and I was keen to share a few selfies on social media.
If your due an eye test or want to purchase some new glasses, I would highly recommend CrossEyes in Newcastle for customer service, price, knowledge and choice.
