“I take pride in carrying out comprehensive eye examinations for all patients. As part of the ethos of Elcott Opticians, I feel each patient deserves the full attention and care which can be hard to find at other multiple practices. I am happy to discuss any optical related queries either onsite or offline. My experience within the Hospital arena, both at Moorfields previously, and more currently at the Luton & Dunstable Eye Department helps me greatly in providing the best clinical care for my patients. It is my promise to provide a thorough and detailed eye examination for each patient who attends Elcott Opticians. I look forward to seeing you!”
