Gardiner Opticians, Burgess Hill > About Us > Testimonials


I was really impressed with the different range of contemporary and classic frames available. Catriona was able to help me select several options to suit my face shape. So if you are looking for a optician’s with outstanding customer care look no further.

Thanks Catriona

John Beattie
We have known Catriona for seven years since she was helping me with my sight at the Sussex Eye Hospital. I found her to be very caring and thorough in her work and a friendship has grown from this. I am still a satisfied patient. My wife, who is a contact lens wearer, has also been cared for by Catriona and makes the same report.
Bill Button
Always a pleasure to visit Catriona and her staff and receive their expert advice in the friendly shop. Delighted with my glasses and I know Catriona is keeping a careful eye on me and my eyes.
Anne Barry
I was given friendly, expert and professional advice and treatment by Catriona and her support staff were welcoming and efficient, but without the hard sell of some chains. I am happy to recommend this practice.

I am writing to thank you for your invaluable help after my recent visit to the Eye Hospital. You were very reassuring and as always were patient and easy to talk to. I felt you really listened to my concerns and gave me excellent helpful advice.


I would find it impossible to find another opticians that I felt as confident and happy with as I feel with you. You are, and always have been, extremely professional, competent and reassuring. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending you and Gardiner Opticians to anyone.

I can’t recommend Gardiner’s enough. As a family we have found the staff to be so kind and helpful. Our youngest has needed glasses for the first time, our middle child has needed a hospital referral and my husband has needed several new prescriptions. In each case we have felt totally confident about the advice we have received. We especially notice the personal touches like fun coloured glasses cases and the fact that the receptionists always remember our names. They are a great example of a family-friendly business.
