Brilliant place to go for eye test , colour test, all staff are so friendly,... polite, nice, welcomming very nice and roomy as I have a 3wheel walker, just a small step to get into shop.I'm dislexic and went for my colour tes to find out which colour would help me the most for reading and writing, sorry about the spelling , I think my new glasses are amazing I just wish I had been told about coloured lenses years ago my life would have been better. Good value for money.If I could you would get a gold star from me,Donna from Polesworth I'm fairly new to this area.read more

Received a very thorough eye test from Mr Bandali, who was very friendly and... reassuring, and who explained everything very clearly.My prescription had changed slightly from the previous year but there was no pressure to buy a new pair of glasses - just very fair guidance on the pros and cons of doing so, with the decision left entirely to me.read more

I haven’t had a decent pair of glasses in about a year because none of the... high-street opticians could get my prescription right, so am very grateful AP Optics fixed it after one appointment. The optometrist I saw was a very nice woman who gave me the most thorough eye test I’ve ever had, and was reassuring regarding the concerns I had about my vision.From now on I’ll definitely be going back to this company for my eye tests, much more reliable than the better known companies. It’s such a relief to finally have the correct prescription after months of suffering with headaches and eye strain. Thank you so muchread more

We received fantastic service recently from AB Optics of Solihull. A business... is only as good as its staff and Jan,Tracey and Naeem were very professional, kind and caring in helping us meet our needs. They really did “go the extra mile” to help us and were very customer focused. The owners are very fortunate to have such good people working for them. All my family go here now and over the years we have always received top class service and a warm, friendly welcome . Any problems are sorted out effectively and efficiently. Recommended to anyone looking for a good optician.read more

They’re not only my opticians but throughout the years have become good friends.

Shocking service.I went in after experiencing a burning pain in my eye and a... new sensitivity to light. Receptionist refused to let me see an optician and said it’s probably just a migraine and I should take painkillers. When I persisted she tried to sell me some generic over the counter drops.Eventually after registering with, and attending, a different opticians, I was diagnosed with a corneal ulcer, which if left untreated can cause blindness.A B Optics had no interest in treating me or even looking at the problem.Awful - won’t be using againread more

I've used AB Optics in Polesworth personally for the last 5 years or so and... each and every time received 5 Star service. My most recent experience I received a thorough eye examination and because they now have my eye health history they were able to explain to me any developments and changes in my vision and prescription.We now also use AB Optics for my 4 year old son as well, over the last couple weeks he has received brilliant care from all the members of staff at both Polesworth & the Solihull branch and they have made him feel at ease with what could be a very scary experience trying to adjust to now wearing glasses at a young age.Cannot fault AB Optics all the staff there are very professional and considerate and we have received great care, will definitely continue to use them in the future.read more
