Exceptional. Great service - they really know their stuff and take extra trouble - and a wide range of frames.

I was a customer for some 30 years, received very good service from one particular person. However, more recently during an eye test with his colleague, i was informed that it looked like i had the 'start of something' going on with my eye and i should see my doctor as i couldn't be helped further. To say I felt alarmed was an understatement. My GP was surprised that they hadn't tried to recommended a specialist or even suggest a visit to Moorfields. When i eventually saw a top specialist i was reassured that nothing sinister had happened. I changed opticians after this experience. It would have been nice had HB placed a courtesy call to check i was ok. Customer care when i needed it most was negligent.

I have been a customer of HBD for many years for both contact lenses and glasses. Abbas, Moshin and the team provide a first class service, with a friendly, helpful and professional approach. They take time over their eye tests, explain the results clearly and offer a very nice range of high quality glasses frames and lenses. Thank you very much!

I broke my glasses 4 days before flying home from London to Perth, though I wear contact lenses I find the aircraft cabin too dry HBD were able to make my glasses in time though at a hefty price which I hope my travel insurance will meet. But by the same token they are the best pair of multi-focal spectacles I have ever worn in over 12 years. Can highly recommend. If I could get my Australian private health insurance to cover me I would come to London just to visit these guys once ever 12 to 198 months.

Finally, after a few years of searching, I now own a pair of Garrett Leight spectacles to call my own! Despite having an obscene prescription I was initially nervous about purchasing new frames away from my home town, but once I had found the frames HBD were able to meet my needs despite living some 200 miles from their store. The whole experience was straightforward and professionally attended to, and I will be forever grateful to Abbas and his colleagues for sorting me out.

If I were to encapsulate in two words what HBD is all about, they would be service and choice. They excel in both, from the eye test through to the final product, their quality shines through. I had been with my previous opticians for many years, and their service is superb too. But where HBD wins through for me is in the breadth of their product offerings, from lenses through to frames.
First class all round!

Phoned them when they were closing with desperate request to get my glasses done. I was told they will wait for me although it took me an hour to get there. Got registered, measured and left with 2 frames amazingly done. Your customer service is award winning! Thank you so much! Best optician i have ever been to!
