NHS Care

We are proud to work in partnership with our NHS and work to provide you with the great service and personalised experience that you deserve. We know that not everybody is interested in the latest designer collections, so we stock a range of frames in both classic and modern styles that are both stylish and affordable, so you don’t need to worry that your budget is going to limit your choice. If you aren’t sure about your entitlement, our friendly staff are happy to discuss it with you in confidence. Just drop in to visit us in practice or give us a call.
If you are entitled to NHS assistance, you can book your eye test with us today by calling 01704 532359 or email us at nicholaswatson@kodaklens.co.uk

We are here to help you make the right choice
