4.9Star review from 28 reviews

5Star review I have used Hammonds for over 35 years. I had a recent visit for my eye check and can not rate their professionalism high enough always kind considerate helpful and with me lots of patience. I was very happy to see all the new equipment that they have invested in to make the whole process much more comfortable I really felt very relaxed and welcomed all the professional feedback and support not to mention the fun of choosing new frames. Well done would certainly recommend a visit

5Star review Honestly, by far the best opticians I have ever been to. Not because of being flashy but because of genuinely doing everything properly and MUCH better than any other optician I have been to, especially the chains. They pre-prepared a whole selection of frames for my unusual requirements. They adapted their procedures to my communication preferences. The ophthalmologist talked me through every thing in incredible detail and with great kindness. The optician measured my head with special machines to make the frame fit just right. They had better testing/measuring machines and a better range of frames and accessories than I have EVER found anywhere. The staff were all so kind and genuine. And an independent, local business with a personal touch. Honestly the best optician experience I have ever had. Highly recommended. They treat you well and do everything to be absolute best standard it can be done.

5Star review Very friendly from the moment we walked through the door, I took my two young children for eye tests, one child is painfully shy & was nervous about being there but Deven really made him feel at ease & made the test fun. Very professional, explaining at every point what was being done & why. Thanks to all the staff from supplying colouring pencils & paper to taking the time to talking to us & making it a good experience for the kids!

5Star review From the moment you walk into Hammond Opticians, you are warmly greeted by the smiling, friendly staff. Deven was extremely caring and informative about my dry eye problem and gave me more advice and help than any other local optician or even Ophthalmic consultants. My eyes have improved greatly in the 6 weeks I've been under his care. Nothing is too much trouble for all the staff and you do not feel pressured to rush your visit. I have recommended them to many friends and will continue to do so!

5Star review I really wanted to try an independent after visits over the years from the usual high street chains which always made me feel like I was in a factory production line, after reading the reviews I chose Hammond opticians. the whole experience was amazing from start to end, complete and thorough with a warm and friendly customer service. It was a complete revelation from what I had experienced before and very happy that I now have the correct glasses to give me the best vision possible. Perfect!

Quality service and product 5Star review Excellence in both. Not the cheapest but definitely the best.

Comment graphicAnthony Miller  29 Jul 2019

5Star review “I never imagined that I would be able to wear contact lenses and I always shied away from even trying them. Now as a new contact lens wearer I am converted! They are fabulous and they have changed my life! I wear them every day and only wish I would have had the courage and support to try them before. The fact that I am now successfully wearing them is due to the patience and helpfulness of the staff at Hammond Opticians. They helped me overcome my fears and guided me every step of the way. Now, I really hate wearing my glasses – apart from my sunglasses! Thanks to all the team at Hammond Opticians for their time. I would thoroughly recommend them to you if you would like to see how wonderful contact lenses can be.”

5Star review “I have been a new patient at Hammond Opticians, since April 2017. The Customer Care I received was, and is, exceptional. The welcome on my first appointment was warm and inviting, which instantly put me at ease. I have a complex prescription. Nevertheless, I was treated with dignity and respect throughout my eye examination having tests for glasses and contact lens. The examination was very thorough, and at every step of the way, I was told exactly what was happening, and why. Throughout this time I felt quite empowered by what I could achieve in all of the tests. Some of the tests were new, as was the cutting edge technology. The expertise and caring for me, as an individual, was excellent. I felt very special. I was advised of the best Contact Lens that were available to me, and now have beautiful Lens that are very comfortable and that I can wear for much longer. A new pair of glasses are next, and I can’t wait to receive the Quality Service, that was for my contact Lens. I was not rushed through my appointment, and had time to ask any relevant questions, that were answered with honesty and clarity. At the end of my appointment I was asked to complete a feedback form and also give suggestions to improve the Practice, of which, I have never done before. How refreshing to know, as a Patient, my views are listened to and appreciated, and where appropriate may be put into action. All the Staff at Hammond Opticians are very professional and receive on-going training. How privileged I feel to know that if I have any queries, they are there to help, and certainly will go “that extra mile.” Hammond Opticians also work hard to engage in the Community. They have Open Days and invite everyone to attend. Also there are various workshops at Chase Hospital. I can keep myself up to date with new developments, by following their Website and Facebook Account. There are useful hints and tips and interesting topics.

5Star review The staff at Hammond Opticians are the nicest people and I think of them as friends. They are exceptionally kind and always look after me in a kind and caring way; it would be impossible to do any better!

Eye test 5Star review Visited this optician for the first time today and was very impressed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Very professional service. Detailed outcome of my examination. Knew exactly what was happening. Am signing on my kids here and will be back. Happy to recommend.

Brilliant 5Star review Would like to say how wonderful the team are at hammonds. My 3 girls (4-7-8) were seen by Deven today and he was brilliant with them and kept them entertained but explained exactly what was happening . A big thanks to the reception staff who looked after them as they waited their turn too. Many many thanks x

Emergency eye op 5Star review A big thank you to Hammond opticians for taking the precaution of sending hubby to Moorfields Eye Hospital A&E today. He has now had an emergency op to reattach his retina. Am just taking him home now from Moorfields where he has had excellent treatment all day.

child eye test 5Star review I took my 5 and 3 year olds to Hammond's after recomendations on here. I had the baby in the pram with me, so a tad mob handed. The staff were delightful. Whisking off coats, producing crayons and paper , offering me water while helping me fill in a form as if they had been trained by superman herself. The actual testing was done professionally and with a calmness that only a busy mum could appreciate. I can not recomend them enough. I booked a 9:15 and left there feeling a lot more relaxed then when I had arrived. I know I make it sound like a spa experience, but it really was so stressless. I should emphasis that the eye test and optician himself was professional and really helpful. I had a concern about my eldest eyes and he explained it all simply and clearly, that even my 5 year old understood.

3Star review not very stylish opticians. good sight test though

Comment graphicdeborah gooding  6 Jan 2016

Wonderful care 5Star review I went along to Hammonds after my previous optometrist retired and based on recommendations from others. I firstly went to the open day and met everyone and also Pauline Harwood who helped me choose some frames in advance of my eye test. I was so impressed by how friendly yet professional everyone was. I went back the following week for my eye test. Devan couldn't have been more helpful and attentive and pays so much attention to detail. He wants the very best for you and has so much patience. My eyes aren't straightforward and The help a I have received is tremendous. Anita was also brilliant , patient and friendly. As well as getting my new glasses perfect Devan is trying to enable me to wear a contact lens which would be fabulous. The time and effort they give to you is wonderful and I couldn't be happier or more appreciative. You feel that your eyes are in the very best of hands and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

5Star review I was made aware of Hammond's Opticians by LYDS and made an appointment as I was tired of the mediocre service provided by a well known High Street chain. I received a professional, friendly and personal service and my appointment was a really pleasant experience, and Deven faultlessly explained the process. My new glasses arrived quickly and I picked them up yesterday. It was a pleasure doing business with this company and I highly recommend them.

Comment graphicJae Coverdale  9 Nov 2015

5Star review I was looking for an optician in Enfield Town, came across Hammond’s and walked in on a busy Saturday morning, finding two groups of clients already seated and being attended. I was ready for a wait but within seconds I was greeted and received a professional but very personal welcome. Not being able to make the Monday, I got my appointment for an eye test on the Tuesday. The appointment was a pleasant experience, unrushed, polite and personal. The basic [Silver] eye test and examination was carried out with care and attention to detail. I did not feel I needed the gold or platinum examination, so I did not experience all the high tech equipment they have, but was impressed by what was on offer. It doesn’t get much better than this! I would recommend Hammond Opticians to anyone.

Comment graphicAndrew Ray  8 May 2015

5Star review Thanks to you and your colleagues for the friendly service, help and advice. The opportunity to see the back of my eye with the fantastic new equipment helped reassure me that my eyes and vision were healthy and ‘in good hands’. I would definitely recommend Hammond Opticians to anyone wanting quality eye care and great glasses.

Comment graphicRoger Davies  8 May 2015

5Star review Hammonds [Opticians] offer the best service of any opticians I’ve used. When I forgot to pick up a product, Deven simply dropped it round on his way home and they charged me for it on my next visit. The staff are all friendly and knowledgeable - they’re never in a rush, and they never try to push you into buying anything. I recently decided to try ortho-K lenses, which I first heard of through Hammonds. As someone who finds glasses annoying but never quite got used to contacts, these have been a revelation. I wear the lenses overnight, then remove them in the morning, and can see perfectly all day. It’s especially convenient for when I swim. I’d recommend them to anybody who isn’t quite satisfied with glasses or contacts.

Comment graphicOllie Bond  8 May 2015

5Star review I am very pleased with the service I have received at Hammond Opticians. I was seen with a concern, given a very thorough eye examination including internal images of my eyes which has put my mind at ease. Mr Lakhani is professional and pleasant, explaining everything at each step of the process.I would recommend Hammonds over any of the ‘chains’.

Comment graphicDerek Barwick  8 May 2015

5Star review Mr. Lakhani and his team offer a truly personal service and show a real interest in getting to know their patients and help them with their individual needs. Having been recommended here a few years ago, I would say that I am very happy with the service and products that I receive at Hammond Opticians.I trust Mr Lakhani's advice even more than the private consultants I have seen in Harley Street.

Comment graphicCyril Ellis  8 May 2015

5Star review Dear DevenThis is just a quick email to thank you for the glasses you did for me recently. In the past, I have never been completely satisfied with the prescription given at other opticians. I am, however, fully satisfied with this one; it is spot on. You also prescribed glasses for my children as well, and I know they have always been made to feel at ease during the appointments and they love the range of glasses you offer.

Comment graphicLorraine Garrard  8 May 2015

5Star review I am very pleased with the friendly and professional service at Hammond Opticians. It was easy to arrange an appointment where an ongoing problem with dry eyes was diagnosed and an appropriate treatment plan was tailored to me. All the staff are friendly and professional and the service and aftercare is very reassuring. There is a good range of products and treatments for my blepharitis and lid problems and each step was fully explained and the staff assured me that I could call on them with any questions I had.

Comment graphicBryn Davies  8 May 2015

5Star review I have recommended Hammond opticians to my friends and family because the staff are lovely and friendly.The practice is comfortable and I always feel relaxed whenever I call in, they welcome me and make me smile.

Comment graphicPauline Hulse  8 May 2015

5Star review [I was] Extremely happy with the service we received. All the staff are very pleasant and knowledgeable and Mr Lakhani’s communications skill are excellent. Mum has struggled at previous opticians as she doesn’t read English so I searched online to find a practice that could help with numbers or shapes. Mr Lakhani explained everything very clearly and mum is very impressed.

Comment graphicMrs Demetriou  8 May 2015

5Star review After promptings from my wife I switched from one of the “chains” to Hammond Opticians and what a revelation! I was treated from the very beginning as a person and not simply as another patient on an everlasting treadmill. In addition, the technology on display was far beyond anything I have ever experienced before. Mr Lakhani explained everything with great clarity and lucidity. The OCT scanner revealed a fault in my right eye [post cataract operation] which I did not even know I had and for that I am truly grateful. I have no hesitation in recommending Hammond Opticians to anyone who is looking for a thoroughly professional service for their eye sight needs. I am sure you will be treated with civility and courtesy as I was.
