Love my new glasses. My lenses have never been so thin

Very kind & professional optometrists. They have an excellent fast track service for getting glasses on the same day if required =)
I needed prescription glasses in time for my driving test. The optometrist Lucy was really kind & helpful, helping me to find a pair of glasses within my price range & gave a very professional eye exam. I would highly recommend Hodds & Barnes Holborn Branch to friends & family.

Broke my glasses and was in a real panic and they were just amazing. First rate customer service before I even turned up, the eye test was very thorough and I had my new pair of glasses 4 hours later. Just perfect.

Came across from Canada on holiday and forgot my contact lenses. They were able to check my eyes on the spot and give me some daily lenses which. Allowed me to see during my great holiday

I have been coming to HBD for over 20 years. The reason is because the level of service and professionalism is unsurpassed. The quality and selection of the frames are excellent as well as their stock of sunglasses. They are also able to order almost any frame from their supplier with a quick turn around. They treat you like family and they want you to be happy from your eye health and care needs to making sure you have the right look from your eyewear. Conveniently located in Holborn just minutes from the station there really isn't any other optician that would compare to HBD.

I needed an adjustment to my Mykita frames.
The frames were adjusted in half an hour, but without the final seating for the lenses, that were not in stock. Nonetheless the bill came to 50 Pounds sterling - more than 30% the cost of the frames themselves.
Thus incomplete service, at a totally unreasonable if not outrageous price.

Dear Sir, thank you for your review. With regards to the Mykita frame in question the frame and lenses actually cost around £650 if not more. When the hotel concierge called us stating they were sending a gentleman across to us for an urgent repair, we mentioned there would be a cost of the repair depending on the severity of the damage. They mentioned there had been a bad accident involving the glasses and they would be covering the cost of the repair. On viewing the frame, there was significant damage which had been caused and you were quoted between £20-£50. This was agreed before we carried out the work. As it was imperative for you to have your glasses immediately, we decided to carry it out straight way in our lab and thus moved the repair to the front of the queue to repair it to the best of our ability within the small window of time as you were travelling the next day. The glasses were completely realigned and given back in a functional condition compared to when they were brought in. Our prices for repair depends on the amount of work which needs to be carried out and as there was significant damage to the frame we had to charge appropriately.

Finally, I found Maybach glasses I was looking for last 1 month. I would highly recommend Hodd Barnes & Dickins opticians for designer glasses and the aftercare. Thank you for your amazing service. :)

I had a fantastic experience at Hood Barnes & Dickins during my stopover in London. They were able to repair my broken spectacles as well as accommodating my large suitcases! Would highly recommend given how knowledgable and friendly their staff were.
