What our patients say
I was really impressed with how welcoming the team were and how thorough the eye examination was. The student who carried out my examination was confident and had excellent support from the supervising optometrist.
I recently attended the CEE opticians for a contact lens check and eyesight test. From the very first contact I found the students and optometry team to be welcoming, friendly, efficient and professional. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend CEE.
