Get ready to see things differently

At See Side Optical, we know how important your eye health is and we want you to feel comfortable having your vision and eyes checked. We’re open for diagnostic optometry testing six days a week, with an experienced and dedicated team ready to take care of all your eye health needs. And as a primary eyecare practice, we’re your first port of call in the event of an optical emergency.

Your vision is in expert hands.

Very friendly staff, always very helpful. A pleasure to deal with. 5 stars!
