After using the usual High Street Opticians, it was a relief to find such a professional company and friendly, they explained everything to me as it was happening. Parag did not try to sell me glasses, he let me decide what to do. What a refreshing change. I would recommend Parag and Care Optics to anyone needing their eyes tested.”

“I've known Parag at Care Optics for 3 years and engaged his company as my optician very soon after. Everything he does is customer focused and he has built a great team. Very friendly and knowledable and the 3 premises are all well set out and with a wide selection of frames. The expert advice on frame selection ensured I got the best fitted frames i've ever had and the thorough eye test gave me great peace of mind and reassurance. I thoroughly recommend Parag and his staff at Corporate Care Solutions Ltd and Care Optics.”
