FANTASTIC Ladies, My glasses had broken and a young lady offered two solutions but I went for new frames with the same glass. Wow they look fab and more lightweight than my last ones. Not going to vision express again.

Rupert Loseby

Optika are the best opticians I have visited. I have had many sight tests with them and had both good quality glasses and contact lenses supplied by them. Appointments are easy to make, all the staff are lovely and easy to talk too and James and Alison both give a friendly and very conscientious eye exam

Holly Wigmore

I've just got a lovely pair of Joules glasses which have been much admired and I am very pleased with.
We've been customers since Alison and James started the practice and highly recommend them to our family and friends, very professional yet friendly service from all the team at Optika - thank you all.

Joan Archer

My husband and I have been to Optika now for a number of years and are very pleased with the service. James and the whole team are friendly and very helpful! I took our daughter for her first eye sight test recently and James made her very welcome and at ease. We all care about our health especially that of our children but I fear this aspect often gets forgotten. With a few simple exercises for our daughter to complete I can be confident that her eyesight is well looked after. There is no cost for children's eyesight tests so there's no reason not to get it checked out!!

Tracey Keight

James is great, So friendly made me feel comfortable. All staff are very helpful!
I won’t go anywhere else!

Nath Weekes

Lovely staff! You always feel welcome and never rushed and they are always happy to help in every way they can.
I had tried Specsavers before and just felt like no one cares and just wanted me in and out and just about the money. But Optika was very different and wouldn't change now, even got my mum to change.

Amy G

Thoroughly recommend Optika Opticians. Excellent service and a standard of care and attention that sets them apart from other opticians. Staff are friendly and helpful and you’re always made to feel welcome. Very customer focussed and efficient.

A fantastic opticians, their standard of care is so much higher than the other options in Weston, with no hidden fees or attempts to upsell on unnecessary services. Highly recommend!


I have been seeing James, Alison and the team for nearly 17 years now! The service is always top notch. They really are the best of the best and would could not recommend them highly enough. Everyone is super friendly and walm welcoming as soon as you walk in and always get treated like part of the family.

Thank you James, Alison and the team for looking after my eye health for the last 17 years :)

josh trowbridge

Alison & James have built a fantastic business that looks after their patients.

The staff are fantastic and you're treated like a member of the family.

Even with all the competition around they are still a great place to go for your optical needs.

We would highly recommend Optika Opticians for your optical needs.

I have also noticed they've branched into auditory services as well so no doubt when and if I need that I'll be going there as well.


Fantastic service and care. Everything was explained clearly and I had a very thorough eye exam. All the staff are so friendly and helpful. I felt like I was really well looked after and taken care of. I highly recommend them!

Andy Coles-Driver

I had a full and very thorough eye examination with Alison Harwood. Incredibly reassuring and with her explanations and knowledge I was put at ease. Would definitely recommend.

Zoe OKeefe

I was due an eye test & wanted to use an independent opticians so chose Optika. No problem arranging an appointment, lady on the phone was very friendly & helpful. On the day it was a very pleasant experience, from being received, the eye test & choosing a frame, everything was explained really well & options were given regarding prices, standard of lenses and price differences, as well as the offers on the day. Also, the staff (at the moment) are all ladies, which somehow felt reassuring. Definitely would recommend them.

Amanda Searle

Great and professional service, very nice atmosphere and helpful staff. The appointment was arranged very quickly. James pleasantly surprised me by knowing quite a few Polish words. I will definitely come back for regular eye tests. The whole experience was 10 out of 10. I would highly recommend !

Safe efficient professional staff. Felt confident with all aspects of my visits Would recommend visiting Optical when needing an eye test and choosing modern glasses .

wendy mepham

Brilliant - really friendly and knowledgeable, excellent experience all round. Amazingly in-depth eye test and Alison was so easy to talk through any concerns with. Highly recommended!!

Helen Làngley

Highly recommend. Best optician in WSM. Friendly and very professional. Helped sort out emergency glasses and contact lenses. Boots were bound by systems that restricted them doing anything. That's when independents have the edge on the chains as the people in charge are able to work out how to deliver. Thank you.

Alison Fogg

First time going to an opticians, they were very helpful and friendly. Sorted my glasses out quickly. Definitely recommend.

Annie Philpot

For anyone looking for a highly respected Opticians we would advise you to look no further after reading this endorsement.
We have just had our Annual check up after being with Optika for 3 years. As in previous years we, again, received exceptional treatment from Alison on the last two visits and James on our initial visit.and their team. Alison once again gave us her explanations throughout the test and the team greatly assisted us in our choice of frames and measurements etc.
Thank you to you all at Optika's
Hilary & Geoff Hayward

Geoff H

Very detailed eye examination and friendly and helpful staff.

sally short

I am very glad to state that from the day of my appointment request , I was guided properly throughout, as I am new in this country I was not having enough information regarding the procedure of an eye test and related needs . I got a call back from the management stating the infection control needs related to COVID-19 and enquired the urgency , they were really thoughtful and understood the importance of the same as I am a health professional.
The team who tested my eyes and helped me to pick the specs were really friendly and never make me feel I am an outsider.
My sincere gratitude for all those beautiful smiling staffs who helped me throughout and wish u the luck to provide the best care. Be safe....

I was tested by James on Friday after a personal recommendation and have to say what a fantastic experience I had with this family run Opticians. James made me feel at ease, as I was a little nervous, I felt the eye test was really thorough and came out feeling very happy with the price I paid for my new glasses. I'll certainly be taking my children back as I feel they will feel as safe as I did having the eye test. Myself and my family will certainly be regulars at Optika from now on.

Mark Church

very thorough and very friendly service. would highly recomend

Jules Derrick Outsidethebox Hypnosis

Brilliant customer service . All the staff were lovely & welcoming
Highly recommended

Moo Moo

Far and away the best experience I've had at an optician. I've worn glasses for years but I've never had such a thorough examination before. They explained every detail of my prescription to me and even sorted out my old broken pair for me! Way better than visiting a chain store!

Rob Taylor

Extremely friendly staff who are exceedingly helpful with decision making and clarifying the options available to their costumers.

Jonah Tom

A very friendly atmosphere, staff and owners make you feel relaxed and are very attentive. Any concerns or questions that you may have are answered informatively and with kindness.

My visit to this optician ,was a ten out of ten experience, eye test ,customer service and selection of lens was brilliant. I even had a follow up phone call see if my visit was worthwhile
As I had a 12 mile journey to OPTIKA

Andrew Chappell

Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Information passed over was very interesting and put over in a way the was very easy to understand. Would highly recommend Optika.

A Ross

After struggling for a few years with double vision and having no joy with two other opticians who would fob me off to hospital appointments, Optika took the time to actually listen to what was wrong and then solve it.
Even choosing the frames, which I always have a problem with, each staff member was eager to jump in, be honest and help me find the right pair.
I've come away with perfect vision for the first time in years and glasses that suit me.
Thanks so much!

Benjamin Cash

Great personal service, attention to detail and wide selection of glasses to choose from.
Whilst on line providers claim to offer a bespoke service and a greatly reduced cost, the help, support and choice Optika provides, far outweighs any on line competitors

Mark Smith

Optika Opticians is simply amazing
I was given a very thorough eye examination and the results were explained in detail
James and his staff were exceptionally helpful and informative
Prices were reasonable too!
This is how an Opticians should be .
I would highly recommend Optika Opticians as the best investment for your eyes

andrew obrien

My wifes eye test with James, although disabled he was very professional, and didn't rush her. The staff were also helpful in choosing her new frames. All excellent and friendly.

Michael Alderman

The whole experience was extremely positive. Staff seemed very genuine in their attention which was repeated when I returned. The test was gentle yet thorough and informative. Highly recommended.

Geoff Hobden

A very warm welcome every time when booking an appointment and when I arrive for said appointment. Every test was very in depth. James explained everything he was doing. If anyone is looking for an optician I would recommend Optika every time. Many thanks everyone at Optika Weston-super-Mare.

Colin Hyams

The service and customer care I received was outstanding. I was made to feel so comfortable and at ease throughout my eye test. A big thank you to Alison and all the team at Optika.

james fisher

James and Alison provide an amazing service. It’s fascinating to hear a detailed explanation of what is going on inside my eyes. I feel looked after. Their staff are friendly and welcoming. I know I can rely on them all. Which is why, in spite of moving away from Weston, I have stayed with them.

Deborah Webb

I have visited Optika for several years now and have always been impressed by the level of service I have received from all members of staff. James - the Optician - explained everything clearly during my eye examination and presented complex information in a way that was easily understood. I appreciated the assistance I was given in choosing my new glasses and the time spent ensuring that my lenses would be correctly fitted. I have always been delighted with my glasses in the past and am looking forward to receiving my new ones shortly. I would not consider using any other opticians because in my opinion, the customer service and expertise at Optika Weston is excellent.

Caroline Walker

Had my first ever eye test here. James was very patient with me and explained everything thoroughly, helped made me feel less anxious about the whole experience. He gave great advice and information with my glasses requirements. The team were very helpful when selecting my glasses and offering additions relevant to me. My glasses came in within the time they advised. All staff were very attentive and provided great service. Could not recommend them enough. Will definitely be returning and sending family and friends their way.
