I recently had a comprehensive eye test. Michael was incredible. He was professional, thorough and he pays attention to detail. Lucille helped me make a booking and kept me updated as to when both pairs of glasses were ready for collection. Very happy with my glasses! Highly recommend Saben Spectacle. They have a very friendly and helpful team who will go above and beyond for you.

My Approach

Vision is not simply about seeing clearly with each eye. It is much more than that. It's about seeing comfortably. It's about your optometrist fine tuning your spectacle or contact lens prescription, so that you can adapt to the visual change as easily as possible. It's about understanding that the modern work environment involves complex visual tasks. It's not just reading a document on the desk in front of you. It's looking at multiple computer screens, laptop and cellphone screens in the same space. Your vision correction needs to work for you even with all of this. Only an optometrist with years of experience and a deep understanding of human interaction with our environment, and a thorough knowledge of corrective lens technology will result in you achieving clear comfortable vision.
