Having used the prominent chain of opticians I became fed up with the conveyor belt style of service. All the independent practitioners seemed to have disappeared, no doubt swallowed up by their big rivals. I was therefore delighted to see the arrival of Chakshu in Parkway. I was not disappointed.

I felt comfortable from the minute I stepped in til I left. So glad to have found you, Chakshu! Fully recommended! :)
