Went to have my eye checked at Lakeland Optical as I had an issue. Lisa the optician was so thorough and suspected I had a superior retinal tear and vitreous haemorrhage so she immediately referred me to Furness General Hospital. It was after 5pm but the consultant was waiting for me. He looked at it and said I need treatment immediately. Without delay he administered laser surgery to repair my retina. Although shell shocked I would like to thank Lisa at Lakeland Optical, the NHS & Barrow Ho


I chose a pair of the colourful, Austrian, JVG frames which I'd spotted in your window. They are simply stunning and I get so many compliments about them. Thank you for having such a choice of frames - I may be back for a second pair !!!


Just moved into the area and we needed a new optician. Called in to register at Lakeland Optical and we were booked in the same week. Really thorough examination and very friendly people. We are delighted with our new glasses and would definitely recommend to anyone. Much better than our last experience with one of the larger opticians - we were truly looked after!


Lisa was able to see that my cataracts had worsened and I was surprised to find I was only just over the legal driving standard. Lisa promptly referred me there and then to the NHS eye clinic. I'd always though cataracts were a skin that grew over your eye - but I learnt exactly what they were - and was even shown a model of a %3Fgiants eye%3F!!!!!

I'd noticed my vision in one eye had deteriorated, and thought I was simply ready for new glasses. Lisa spotted a problem at the back of my eye and I was referred immediately on to see my GP - who confirmed I had very high blood pressure. Many Thanks.


Ordered my glasses from Lakeland Optical on Monday and they were ready to collect by Wednesday morning. Amazing!


My GP referred me to Lakeland Optical after I had been suffering with a sore eye for 5 weeks . I was told there is now a FREE NHS SERVICE at Lakeland Optical. I was seen the next day, where I was greeted by Helen and taken in to see the optometrist Lisa Sariwee. Within one minute Lisa had diagnosed my problem, and then promptly assessed the whole eye very thoroughly, and referred me to see an eye specialist. Fantastic service, very pleased and I will definitely be coming here for my next eye ex


The CRIZAL Anti-reflection coating has made a huge difference. My eyes feel less tired and I have gained confidence with my night driving. The wide channel varifocals has no noticeable distortion, and the COMPLIMENTARY varifocal sun lenses are great!


Love my new Barbour glasses, and thank you for excellent service.


I love my new varifocals glasses and especially my sunglasses for which I have received fab comments! Thank you Lisa ( and your mum too was brilliant!)....can't recommend highly enough!


What a great service, would not go anywhere else. Lisa & Helen were really professional and could not have been more helpful.


So pleased with my new glasses ( & I hate choosing glasses!) Lisa & Helen were so helpful and friendly.


Lovely ladies, friendly and professional service. Fabulous selection of specs and very reasonable prices.


The best eye test I've ever had ! Thank you Lisa and Helen for all your help!

Just been fitted by Lisa for new contact lenses. Really comfortable, latest materials at really good price.

Lisa has just prescribed varifocals for me. Having failed with them in the past I was unsure initially. However, her prescription was so good that within minutes I was able to run up and down stairs, read things close up, as well as perfect distance vision. She even put in contact lenses for me so that I could actually see to choose my frames. I saw so well that I ordered a cheeky little pair of distance sunglasses too and I am going to try contact lenses now as Lisa spent time to show me how to


I booked an eye check as I had noticed reading had become more difficult. I had resigned myself that I would need varifocals or longer arms! However I was amazed to find out I could wear multifocal contact lenses, which are fantastic - no more reading glasses! Thank you Lisa for your patience - love my contact lenses!


So much easier having my eye checks done in Grange rather than having to go through to Kendal!

The lens had fallen out of my glasses which I had purchased elsewhere. You were able to fix this immediately for me at no charge - AMAZING! I was more than happy to make a charitable donation to your collection.


I was visiting family in Grange, and decided to purchase new spectacles. I was given lots of advice on frame shapes and styles, and was offered a fast track service to get my glasses asap. My varifocals were ordered and arrived within 4 days!! Thank you so much Lisa, Katie and Helen - excellent service!


Thank you for looking after Mum and Dad so well the other week. Loving mum's new glasses, she's looking amazing.

Cath, Grange Over Sands

Great selection of frames, and really helpful styling advice from Katie. Thanks.


Wonderful selection of frames at very competitive prices!


Whilst visiting Grange, I developed a problem with my eye. Lisa saw me immediately, confirming I had a serious eye infection and referred me directly to the local eye department that afternoon. If left untreated I could have lost my sight completely. Fantastic service, Thank you.


I have just moved to the area and had a very sore eye. Lakeland Optical were able to see me the same day, and the optician was able to find the problem straight away! A free service too ! Will definitely come here for my next eye check up - they had some beautiful glasses!


Really surprised to see what a splendid choice of frames there were. So refreshing to see so many modern, and different styles - and the frame advice I got from Helen was amazing - I love my new glasses!


Thankyou for your thorough, professional service on my recent visit. May 2019. Most impressed with your warm, friendly manner whilst maintaining professional customer service. The eye drops ( HYCOSAN dual) have all ready made a positive difference.

I had a problem with my eye and phoned Lakeland Optical. My call was answered immediately, and the optician was able to chat to me and re-assured me about my problem. I sent a photo of my eye, and Lisa was able to tell me what the problem was. Very grateful as i'm self isolating.


I attended under the Minor Eye Scheme during lock down as I was having problems with my eye. Lisa referred me urgently and I was diagnosed with a tumour in my eye. Fortunately treatment has been successful and my sight has been saved.Very grateful to all involved!


Lisa encouraged me to try contact lenses after my eye test. I had been finding that my glasses were a nuisance playing golf and in the rain. Contact lenses were a doddle ( with a bit of practice!) and I now wear the moisturising daily disposables all day!


I was seen under the new NHS MINOR EYE CONDITION SCHEME as I was concerned about my eye. Lisa examined my eye and found that my retina was detached. I was referred the same evening, and then onto Liverpool Eye Hospital for surgery.
