“DONT PAY CASH!!”

Written on: 11/04/2017 by Suttontruth (1 review written)

Paid £240 cash in the Sutton store and was constantly told I would get a FULL refund if I changed my mind within 60 days. I changed my mind in less than 60 minutes but was offered a cheque by the manger. Only when I objected, did she suggest a BACS transfer. Reluctantly I agreed as I was NEVER offered a cash refund. This BACS transfer took over 36 hours to process!! I had to transfer some money myself and this took less than 36 seconds!! Absolutely shocking visit to the Sutton branch!! Nothing… Read Full Review

“poor customer care”

Written on: 27/03/2017 by dnye (1 review written)

I would give the Optometrist 5 well merited stars for her excellent and professional care, but the customer care in the Bicester shop is very lacking. I was kept waiting for my eye test and saw a person with an appointment set after my time being dealt with before me. I was put off by this but decieded it was probably an oversight. I was subsequently assured that my lenses could be fitted whilst waiting, so when I received a phone call informing me that my lenses had arrived, and could be… Read Full Review

“Profit before care”

Written on: 24/03/2017 by 458Turner (1 review written)

After being with Vision express Warrington for a year I decided enough was enough. Everytime I've visited this place I've always felt that I've been an inconvenience the staff are extremely moody and offer the very basic eye care as it's all about maximising profit for this company. Went in today for a contact lense check and was told it would cost £35 or it would be free if I signed upto the direct debit scheme needless to say I walked out and went back to my old independent opticians… Read Full Review

“Rude C Fatama in Ilford”

Written on: 07/03/2017 by Reesez432 (1 review written)

I have met lots of staffs in different Vision Express stores. They are all friendly and professional. I am really disappointed for receiving a bad customer service from London - Ilford store The old lady Fatama who has a big and long black hair and should be the supervisor or something. She was rude and not helpful at all. I had chosen my glass and was going to order it. When I met her, she told me the cost of eye test and the eye test schedule was quite full on that day but she could put me… Read Full Review

“Disappointed ”

Written on: 10/12/2016 by Lazzie (1 review written)

Purchased a pair of Prada reading glasses. Upon arrival to collect my glasses, was told that there was no case. Offered to give me a standard case for my glasses which cost me almost £300. I'm very very very aggrieved. I have never ever purchased glasses before whether it's from specs savers or Chanel and told that they do not have the brand case to accompany my glasses. After much discussion with the assistant Eni it was agreed that the appropriate case will be ordered for collection on… Read Full Review

“Fantastic Free Eye Test”

Written on: 29/10/2016

Found a voucher for a free eye test at Vision Express. I booked a date and time slot online and quickly received a phone call to confirm a precise time. I arrived four minutes before the appointment was due and was greeted and ushered straight away for the preliminary health checks and then immediately introduced to the optometrist who started the full examination without delay. All members of staff were friendly and personable and I was provided with the results of the test at the end… Read Full Review

“Vision Delayed”

Written on: 21/10/2016 by BrynnGrant (1 review written)

Went to Vision Express for an eye test and ordered new glasses from the friendly and helpful staff. After 2 weeks I chased up progress and was assured they would turn up by middle of next week. After another week I went to the local store where the staff spent 20 minutes failing to get an update. Still no update several days later, but informed there were technical issues, which should be resolved shortly. Three days later, still no idea what was happening. 2 days later I raised a complaint… Read Full Review

I tried phoning the shop yesterday morning several times. It kept ringing out. I went on line and booked an appointment time suitable for two days later. I didn't get a response. So at five o clock today I rang the shop and someone answered straight away. I explained I had been trying to book an appointment and no one had answered the phone . She said they were very short staffed and apologised. I mentioned I had booked an appointment on lineI. A two hour slot and no one had got back to me… Read Full Review

I paid by cash for poor quality glass and asked for a refund. I was told the store does not stock "that amount of cash". We are talking £144 here !! They told me I need to wait until another customer pays by cash. Sound reasonable, I waiting for over 3 weeks, went back to the store same answer "no cash" They are only offer bank transfer. DO NOT trust these beep*beep*. I have open a compliant case with customer service. Still waiting for my refund. DO NOT uses Vision Express… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/08/2016 by 218Shields (1 review written)

I need varifocals,decided on contact lenses due to the ease of wearing, and the cost. Was given 5 lenses ( all they had in stock) was told they would have more in store in a couple of days. Signed up for direct debit paid £93, 5 days later no contact from store to say they are ready for collection. Contact leses ran out 2 days ago £93 down with nothing to show for it. Extremely disappointed… Read Full Review
