"Thank you for all your care and attention you have looked after my eyes for a while, then last year I had a problem with a torn retina and the service was second to none. Both the Hospital and my G.P. have commented on how lucky I have been to have you as my optician."

"We have used Mellis opticians for approximately 8 months now with our 4 year old twins. From the first visit the team have always been very friendly and professional throughout. From the Receptionists right through to the opticians the whole team have always been so good with the children , helping them to feel very relaxed each time they visit, which in turn helps us as parents feel very relaxed too. The opticians have been very informative when explaining any issues along the way. Both our children now wear glasses - when choosing glasses for them the staff have been great right from choosing the most suitable ones to the fitting of them. Every time we visit it is always a very relaxed atmosphere and welcoming to us all. The team are always accommodating with any requests we make. I would strongly recommend them to anyone. I feel it is like a real close knit family company- and after having a very poor level of service from a much bigger optician company I would recommend Mellis eye care as a first choice anytime. We have visited both branches and the level of service is the same .Many thanks to your whole team in both branches ."

"Very friendly practice, reception staff recognised the children even though it had been a year since our last visit. Iain was excellent with both children and making the eye tests fun using different technology. I have already recommended to friends and family, who have visited and all agree what a great service Iain and his staff give."

"Friendly, helpful staff, making the whole family relaxed, Iain explains everything he is doing - especially to a child with lots of questions. Excellent service. Would highly recommend Mellis eyecare"

"I have been attending this Optician surgery since my old Opticians closed. The original staff migrated to the Thornaby branch and every time I visit I find the service personable and dedicated to me only. There is time and care taken with my visit, where I am not rushed and treat as an individual. Choices are always given towards payments and the staff cater to my style, needs and price range when ordering new glasses and/or lenses. This is an excellent Opticians!"
