Having been a wearer of glasses for 65 years I have tried many opticians until thankfully I discovered Amar Shah who has been looking after my eyes for 20 years. He takes more than enough time with his eye tests which are the most thorough I have ever experienced. Most opticians want you in & out as quickly as possible, collect their fee & sell you some new frames. Amar & his staff want to get everything right so I will want to keep coming back. And I do.
Always listens and explains everything.
Looking after my eyes and visual health is absolutely vital to me, which is why I need a highly skilled, efficient and sympathetic optometrist who offers a thorough regular inspection and great service. Coupled with excellent advice, a brilliant range of frames and accessories and all provided in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere, is why I have been a patient and customer of Amar Shah for so many years.

Amar has looked after my and my family ever since we moved to Bristol over 15 years ago. He is both professional and practical – you feel safe that his advice is always given with your best interests in mind. He and his team are always ready to help, whether its suggesting what looks good, making some minor adjustment or just answering my questions.
I have been seeing Amar for at least 20 years. He is one of my personal "health heroes" as he discovered my glaucoma at a very early stage and ensured I was referred for what has been vision saving treatment.
The choice of frames and styles has always kept pace with the best design and the whole team take time to ensure you find the frames that suit you.
I have recommended Amar to many people over the years and feel just as strongly today that you get a thorough and reliable examination and great service.
I started using Amar as my optician when he opened his practice in Cotham in 2005 as I lived nearby. Despite moving further away I have been a patient ever since. Amar’s calm and relaxed manner makes having your eyes checked over a real pleasure. I am a contact lens wearer and Amar is always up to date with latest developments. Being a fellow health care profession I have recommended Amar to many people with complete confidence as I know he will provide them with a top rate service.
