While Specsavers is a trusted national brand, each of its shops is run on a partnership basis. Specsvaers Caterham Valley is run by business partners Sundip Patel and Jay Patel.
As well as offering eye tests and selling glasses, sunglasses and contact lenses, they also have high tech equipment which can spot the early signs of eye diseases, such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, and serious problems like retinal detachments.
About seven years ago, they introduced hearings tests and now have an audiologist based on-site twice a week, which has been very popular.
They are open seven days a week and have a team of 15 staff (full and part-time), so you can usually get a same-day appointment if you suddenly find yourself with a spare half hour or a free lunch break and in need of an eye test!
The right style for you
The Specsavers frame-styler superimposes various frames onto a scan of your face so you can make the right choice for you.
Specsaver Caterham Valley stocks a huge range of frames from top deigners including Hugo Boss, Kenzo, Karen Millen, Timberland, Roxy, Tommy Hilfiger, Converse, Diesel, Superdry and Balmain, to name a few.
Top tips on choosing the right designer frames:
Geek-chic is still definitely in, so many people are going for larger, statement-style frames, although we have plenty of the more rimless, discreet frames. And if you are buying sunglasses, then larger frames and polarising lenses are the big thing once again this summer.
