Client Testimonials

“Simply the best Opticians around! Loved my whole experience here. From my very first phone call booking an appointment, i was met with superb customer service from Lauren. Eye exam done by Mr Thanki, he is very thorough, clearly explained his findings & very helpful in giving me tips to look after my eyesight, very lovely gentleman, highly recommend. My glasses only took 4 days they were ready, considering they had to order a frame for me, amazing services and special thank you to Lauren for helping me chose a frame suited to my face shape, already had so many compliments. Highly recommend this place.”

“Clear careful explanation of the results of my sight test and my options. I can certainly see much better with my new prescription. I am very happy with my new glasses and the support I had to choose glasses that suit me which is something I would normally find very stressful. I enjoyed the process and all the staff are engaged and supportive. I would definitely recommend using this optician.”

“FANTASTIC support from the team at Stephen H Davies. Really excellent eye-tests and reassurance when I had a problem. Prescription glasses work brilliantly and look so much better. I'm even trying out contact lenses now! Very exciting. I can't praise this practice enough. Really good”

“I had a great professional service from people who seemed to care about me and not just the money. I will highly recommend them to all my friends.”

Great Professional Service

“Went here to get my eyes checked out, I found the staff very helpful and pleasant, the test went without a hitch. Afterwards I was sat down and the results clearly explained to me and then ran through the various options I had available to me. Overall good experience. Alan W”


“Great service. Brilliant selection and very knowledgable and friendly. I never thought I would have to wear glasses. I thought I would be just fine as I was (and anyway, would look silly in glasses). But I was getting headaches and my eyes were tired after a days work in front of my PC. I had heard about these optometrists so, initially, I spoke to the receptionist over the phone. Very reassuring and they booked me in to have a look.”

Mr S Shah

“Great service, lovely staff and I left with a stylish pair of glasses. Definitely would recommend this place! ”

Jennisa Edwards

“Top experience, great communication and very quick delivery of my brand new pair of Anne et Valentin's spectacles. Very helpful, as I was struggling to find a replacement pair for my original specs which snapped, and received a truly professional and quick service. Would definitely recommend.”

Duncan M

“This is the best optometrists! I've been going to Stephen H Davis for several years now. Vishal, Duong, Lauren and the team are so friendly (and funny) and they also have great taste in glasses. I don't think I'd ever found a pair of glasses I truly loved until Vishal pointed a pair out for me! I love it so much that even though I've moved over an hour away I still go back for eye tests and buying new glasses!”

Alex A

“I always receive great service from Stephen Davis Opticians. The staff are super helpful and the quality of the eye test is top notch. When I get a new prescription, I really notice the improvement in my vision. I wear varifocal glasses and the transition between reading, medium range and long vision is spot on. Highly recommended!”

Paul M

“Excellent customer service. Nothing is too much. Also, so helpful. My family have been using them for years. I recommend.”

Ying M

“After years of so-so service from the usual high street chains, basically selling me new glasses and not addressing my concerns, and with growing concern about my failing sight, I was recommended by a helpful GP to Stephen Davis Opticians on Stoke Newington Church St. For the past three years the optometrist there, Mr Bhavik Acharya, has tested, guided, helped, reassured me. I had surgery to remove cataracts from both eyes, have had new lenses inserted and now -at 70 yrs old - have excellent sight and consider myself very lucky to have found Mr Acharya. Highly recommended”

John D

“I love going here to find new cool glasses or to get my eyes tested. Vishal and the rest of the team are very experienced but also so friendly. It feels more like a social visit sometimes as I'm always laughing so much! Great advice too - I am always getting compliments about my latest pair of glasses from people I meet at work. Thanks so much Vishal and the whole team. See you soon.”

Owen Smith

“The service from Vishal and the whole team is outstanding: professional, empathic and patient. No concern is too small to be taken seriously. Advice is clear and helpful. Reception staff are always friendly and responsive. The range of frames on offer is excellent and continually updated. Highly recommended!”

John B

“This is the most friendly and helpful and informative place for someone who needs glasses - especially if you're a bit anxious about the whole thing! They also have an amazing range of frames and are happy to spend hours, if needed, while you make your decision.”

Ms Fox

“Quite simply the best eye test I have ever had, resulting in the best prescription glasses I have ever worn. I also brought my 4 year old daughter for an eye test and she was made to feel relaxed and happy. The team at Stephen H Davis is extremely professional, patient and helpful, and the shop has a good range of contemporary and classic, high quality frames. Highly recommended!!”

Shira S

“While I have enjoyed many years of good service at this opticians my experience with Vishal and his team in the last few years has been outstandingly good. I LOVE my glasses and so does everyone I meet! I have to do a lot of public speaking and so my glasses matter. Vishal is meticulous with his eye testing and you feel as though you are in expert hands as well as having access to a cutting edge range of frames and informed advice from his team.”

Rachel H

“I am a longstanding customer of over 25 years. The reason for me returning to Stephen Davis Optometrist despite neither my work nor home in the direct area is because of the professionalism, dedication and knowledge of the staff. On rare occasions - due to work - I been forced to visit alternative opticians of a large commercial chain and was left very unimpressed and felt the chains were impersonal. At Stephen Davis my experience has consistently been first class: Examinations of the eye are thorough, prescriptions perfectly accurate; I found over the years many nice looking pairs of glasses. Also, the contact lens service provided is also second to none. I never had to wait long to either book appointments or to pick up glasses or contact lenses that were ordered for me. So, thank you very much - look forward to the next 25 years! ”

Alex K

“ Stephen H Davis is one of the best bits of living in Stoke Newington when it comes to health and wellbeing. Both of our children have needed glasses and the care and attention to their needs from all the staff at this opticians has been extraordinary. Not only do they provide an extraordinary professional assessment, but their efforts to get the right frames, to keep them in working order and do it in an affordable way is second to none. I couldn't recommend this team highly enough.”
