I was looking for new frames for over a year, but felt I was pushed into buying a frame that I didn’t really like. I saw Navin at this opticians and he showcased the variety of frames they stock. I ended up with three frames I liked! I ended up with an Oliver Peoples frame which I love!
I am not local to St John's Wood but my husband and I had heard about safarian and simon opticians and decided to give it a try. The journey proved to be well worth it! There is a friendly and professional atmosphere in the practice and I had plenty of freedom to explore and try on a variety of frames, all of which were good quality and stylish. My eye test, by Sachin Patel, was excellent and the state of the art equipment was impressive. Navin was attentive without being pushy and extremely calm and patient. I decided on a Lindberg titanium frame with Zeiss varifocal lenses. We left feeling extremely satisfied and we collected my beautiful glasses 2 weeks later and I could not be happier!! We can't wait to return!!
Navin was great at helping me choose my glasses. My daughter had typically damaged my last pair. I short-listed to the Lindberg and Orgreen and opted for the Orgreen which were ready in 3 days!. On collection, he showed me the new Chanel collection with clip on's, I will be back for those later! Thanks
The staff at Safarian and Simon were excellent, they made every effort to accommodate my need to see Mr Patel. They adjusted my old glasses to improve my varifocal vision and showed me some new frames with no pressure. What was interesting and I now understand. All mainstream opticians have hundreds of frames, but they all are same design, same colour and the designer ranges are a few years old. In this optician I saw a wider and more interesting variety of frames and the cost difference was small given the frame quality, you know it will look good and last. Thanks Navin and Gabby, look forward to my new Garrett Leight and Gotti Sunglasses.
