Customer Testimonials

After years of poor service and bad glasses from a high street optician decided to go local. It is the best decision I could have made great service and the best glasses and sun glasses I have ever had. Thanks for sorting out my previous incorrect prescription.
Janette Smith
“I can see!” Fantastic service from examination through to fitting. I came under duress from my wife and daughter and am now a customer for life. Thanks
Colin Thomason
Excellent service
What a brilliant experience. Hansons fully understood that Sp*csav*rs had let me down badly, even after the glasses were remade. When Atiq showed me the prescription I should have, and the one Sp*csav*rs had given me, I don't know how they can call themselves opticians. Thank you Atiq and Sab for your patience and understanding. I was glad when you told me it was not me, but that I had been given the completely wrong prescription. My new glasses have been superb from day one. Thank you so much.
David Ledgard
I was recommended to Hansons by a man whose glasses I admired. From my first contact to receiving my glasses I cannot praise the staff enough. My appointment was like a breath of fresh air after going to High Street opticians and feeling as though I was in a cattle market. The eye examination was very thorough and every process explained clearly . The ladies were very helpful and patient when it came to choosing my glasses . I now have a beautiful pair of glasses. Thank you to Hanson Opticians

Excellent service, friendly and knowledgeable staff with a good choice of frames - no need to go anywhere else!
Just quite a lovely place with lovely people. Aside from the fact that the team are fantastically knowledgeable and professional, the attention to detail, personal care and friendly welcoming attitudes made me feel comfortable, like I have been visiting for years. Thank you.

Staff were very welcoming and kind. Atiq did a thorough check of my eyes and was brilliant with my 21 month old. Would definitely recommend to others.
Lynne marshall
In depth eye examination, i got great eye health advice and staff were very helpful towards me choosing the right glasses. Thank you
I walked in off the street as I haven't been to the opticians for years. Everybody was extremely welcoming and polite,and couldn't have helped me any more than they did. I'm certain I'm now going to be a loyal and happy customer of Hanson Opticians in Mirfield. Thankyou!
Mrs Donna Armitage
I would like to thank Hanson Opticians for a fantastic service. From ordering in the Tiffany glasses that I wanted, to receiving them with my lenses in, in just short of a week. I was impressed with how quick the service is. Atiq made me feel as ease whilst having my eye examination and Helen is an asset to the business, polite and helpful. I will certainly be returning for my future eye examinations & to buy more glasses. I will be back for my Bvlgari one's at some point! Many thanks, Nuala.
Nuala Donnellan
I received a friendly welcome having called in for some advice. I was given an appointment the same day and underwent a thorough and professional eye examination which confirmed my suspicion that I had been given an incorrect prescription by another optician. I was very happy with the constructive advice which I received.
Gerry McHugh

John Chaffin
Since moving back to Mirfield, this has been our first contact with a local optician and thank goodness we chose Hanson's. Jointly we have been wearing glasses for some ninety years and never has either of us come across such excellent service we have had here. The interest shown in us personally plus the attention and detail of all aspects relating to our eyesight was way beyond anything we have experienced before. Congratulations Hanson's
Sam and Andrew Hamilton
Excellent & very professional.staff very easy to get on with & very understanding, one of the best opticians I've ever spoke too.
My eye examination was extremely thorough and I was kept informed of what was happening throughout. I feel very happy with the standard of care here, and would recommend Hanson Optician wholeheartedly.
I took my daughter aged 6 for a routine eye appointment today. The staff were all extremely welcoming and made my daughter feel very relaxed. The reminder texts about the appointment were very helpful. All in all a very good experience, will definitely return.
Fran Bowman
Had a slight problem after Cataract surgery. Atiq could not have been more helpful putting me at ease and reassuring my fears, when I called in a couple of times (without appointment). After treatment with drops all is now ok and I have now got my new glasses. I cannot recommend the whole team at Hansons enough. As I have said before I would recommend them to anybody.
Alan Warden
I had real concerns about one of my eyes today and rung Hansons to see if they could see me. I was seen within 15 minutes and given a very thorough examination and my mind put at ease. The staff were brilliant, caring, thoughtful and very professional - nothing was too much trouble. Hansons will be my opticians of choice now and I will be recommending them to friends and family.
Jennifer Evans
Eye test on Christmas Eve first time at this opticians and it was one of the most thorough eye tests I have ever had. The after care was also outstanding. My wife and I changed to Hanson for convenience but the change has been a good move on all points
Roy Parry
Just called in to ask about an eye test and cost. They had the offer price of £10 for the test and they could see me straightaway. Excellent friendly service and I am now looking foward to collecting my new reading glasses.
Andrew Parry brown
Fab customer service and really thorough eye tests for myself, husband and son today. I didn't have a clue where to start and choose my new glasses but Jo was really helpful, along with entertaining our 9 year old (he loved his free Halloween sweets). Looking forward to our next visit.
Claire Lomas
Great Friendly service today from the team at Hanson Opticians - fabulous service for all the family. I had contact lenses fitted today for the first time and I'm loving them ! The girls couldn't have done enough to help both myself and my young daughter, who has picked her new glasses and can't wait to receive them in a few days. Stay Local - you won't be disappointed.
Odelle Hewitt
Visited them this morning, very relaxed atmosphere and professionalism. Everything explained to me about my cataract operation. Will definitely recommend them to my family and friends.
Alan Warden
I took my daughter for an eye test yesterday and I can't praise the service we received highly enough, the test highlighted some issues with my daughters eyesight all of which were explained to me properly, the appointment did not feel rushed in any way and both the optician and his assistant were professional yet genuinely warm and friendly, highly recommended.
Angela Bennett
Have previously used Specsavers but called in here to make an appoinment whilst shopping in Mirfield. Very thorough examination, a good choice of frames and much better value for money than I'd anticipated. All in all great service.
Jo Crossland
I am SO pleased with my new glasses, both pairs! I used to dread having to choose new frames but Helen and Jo made it really easy. They looked after myself and my partner really well, we actually had fun and a nice cup of tea! My eye test was so thorough, Ellie is clearly very knowledgeable and I felt that she really cared about my eyesight. The service is very special and, having always used the large high street opticians, I am so glad I chose to go local this time.
