About Eye Academy:

Style. Expertise. Care. Health.
You may assume all opticians are the same, and most are, but we are very different.

At Eye Academy, we are renowned for our clinical knowledge and luxury eyewear. We offer a range of appointments from a basic eye examination to specialised examinations that we individually tailor to your specific needs. New patients are often blown away by the thoroughness of the eye examination, the quality of vision we can help them achieve, the beautiful practice and the friendly welcome.

I’m not one that usually leaves reviews but after my recent visit to Peeper Opticians in Banbury I just had to leave one. I found Cheryl, Faith and Michael to be super helpful, friendly and professional making me feel very comfortable and valued, not just a number!! My dry eye problem that I have had for many years and tried everything on the market to sort out has now been fixed, after seeing their specialist who inserted plugs. The procedure was painless and the results are truly amazing - no more dry eye!!! Needless to say I cannot recommend Peepers in Banbury highly enough and they will be my go to opticians from now on.

David and his team have taken a great deal of trouble to help me find the right frames …. I’m afraid I was what could be referred to as a”difficult customer”. I am so grateful for the advice and support I received at Eye Academy, Guildford. I will recommend them to all my friends!

Romana correctly diagnosed a small retinal tear in my right eye during my routine annual check up. Without the knowledge, experience and equipment available at Ellis & Thompson I would likely have lost the sight in my left eye. What price your vision ? I could not be more happy with the care and attention that I receive from E&T. Without Romana’s prompt attention and follow up I could be facing a very different future. It is incredibly important to leave eye care to highly qualified practitioners. I may seem routine until it’s not. Thank you Romana and the whole team at E&T. I am eternally grateful. Best. Michael.

The service and care is first class. The staff are absolute professionals and really know their stuff! From the excellent eye examination I received to helping me choose the best glasses and lens type to suit my needs I could not have been in better hands. I made the mistake of changing opticians for a couple of years and having now had a fantastic service at Eye Academy with my return visit I’m not going to change again.
Helpful Report
The eye academy staff were really welcoming, professional and knowledgeable. My eye assess was really detailed and I’m so happy with my new glasses- they make reading so much easier and more comfortable. I’m so glad I made an appointment! I had waited for a very long time due to not being able to afford to pay for the appointment and glasses as it was very expensive. But when is finally saved up it was really worth it and has greatly improved my quality of life, and a simple routine opticians appointment would not have picked up on the eye issues that needed correcting.

My wife and I both had appointments with Ali over the last week. We found him most charming and personable. He was very conscientious and explained procedures in detail. We are both in our seventies with minor eye issues so were grateful for the consultation we had. Pleasant and worthwhile appointments.

Having received a thorough eye examination and asked to come back in 2 years with no deterioration I was shown a selection of glasses to choose a new pair costing £300 which I declined. I came out confused as to why this was.
Helpful Report
The greeting by front of staff was friendly and cordial, attention to detail was flawless and Ali was very professional and yet caring. A more pleasant a place than my last visit 3 years ago. A wonderful transition.

After the chaos caused by the pandemic it was reassuring to get back to a normal eye check-up. I found Mr Yasen 'chairside manner' very friendly and unhurried. As the examination progressed I was very impressed by his willingness to give detailed answers and medical explanations to any questions I raised. It was a very enjoyable 45 minutes. So much better than visiting the dentist! At the spectacle fitting I found Tracey Gore equally attentive. In fact my only gripe would be the cost. Everyone has to earn a living but I just wish the price of glasses was much cheaper.

Having specifically searched for specialist opticians and optometrists in Surrey I found Ellis and Thompson so decided to give them a call. Firstly, the receptionist Rebecca was absolutely fantastic. She listened, empathised, understood, and initially explained that they were fully booked but said that as I was keen to visit asap, she would speak to the senior optometrist on site and get back to me within half an hour which she did. Rebecca suggested upon her call back that I book in with Romana who is the senior optometrist and said they could fit me in that afternoon due to a cancellation. Rebecca explained what the Platinum Eye Exam would entail (this was what was recommended as well as what I wanted) and I went along. What can I say? Romana was beyond fantastic!! Thorough is an understatement - she listened to every word, carried out numerous specialist tests, and was extremely kind which is something I truly value and appreciate. No question was too much (I asked a lot!!) She explained everything thoroughly, even gave me some eye exercises to do, and her service was far beyond any optician I have ever visited before. She has specialist knowledge that goes further than straight forward eye examinations. I even had a question that I forgot to ask so called shortly after my appointment and Romana answered patiently without making me feel like I was bothering her at all. I was so grateful! Thank you Ellis and Thompson, your entire team are amazing people who make someone feel truly valued and you all take time in everything you do. I will absolutely recommend to everyone I know!

Thank you so much for your review, Roger! It was a pleasure to see you and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
All staff were very helpful and courteous. It was a very thorough eye examination and all aspects well explained. When I had problems with the new glasses a very helpful re-examination was done. I had helpful advise with choice of glasses and excellent fitting.

Thank you for your wonderful feedback Lori! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
High street opticians be aware you have serious competition from the Eye Academy!! This was my second visit and as before the service was excellent. I received expert advice regarding my eyes and although there was minimal change required to my eyesight I purchased another pair of glasses. The advice given reference the new frames has resulted in yet another pair of glasses that suit my personality. Will look forward to purchasing a pair of optical sunglasses next year following yet further advice. Well done!

Thank you so much for your lovely review Mr Wardle! We are so thrilled we could help. We look forward to seeing you again and helping with your sunglasses.
I received a very friendly and professional service from all at Eye Academy. The receptionist was very welcoming and had my records to hand. The OCT scan was expertly carried out as was my eye test. On this occasion I did not need new prescription glasses but was given lots of important and useful information to help protect my eyesight for the future. All Covid 19 rules were adhered to so all in all an enjoyable hour!
