Having worn cheap reading glasses from Poundland in UK for the last 4 years, I decided that with all the article writing I’m doing, and starting to get constant headaches, it was time to get myself a proper pair of glasses. Having looked them up online I was pleased to see they were offering a free eye test until the 31/07/16. I completed the brief online booking, and expecting a reply by e-mail, was impressed to receive a call back in under 12 hours confirming my appointment date and offering me an appointment 40 minutes before my requested time. Considering this was a Saturday and an hour before their closing time, I was very pleased that they could fit me in at such short notice.
Specsavers Torrevieja branch is conveniently located across the road from the Habaneras Shopping Centre on Av. Rosa Mazón Valero which is about a 30 minute walk from the city centre and can also be reached by bus. The store is modern and bright and the staff friendly and very efficient, calling me for my examination right on my allocated time. The thorough and informative eye test took about 20 minutes and included tests for both my long and short sight. It was then about another 10 minutes for the paperwork and prescription to be written up. I took this time to browse the choice of frames available, and due to the fact that I work from home, decided to just go with the 29€ options of which there were 24 designs. Once I had chosen my frames, photographic measurements were taken to ensure the frames would fit perfectly and I was informed I could return the following Saturday to collect my glasses.
I was extremely pleased with the service I received and the wide range of eye wear options available that included top designer brands such as Karl Lagerfield, FCUK, Tommy Hilfiger, Red or Dead, Converse and Puma. Specsavers Torrevieja also offer a full range of contact lenses and various other great discounts including 25% off for over 50’s.
