The Patrick and Menzies Team

We’re a friendly bunch…

We choose our people very carefully and we’re proud of their commitment to providing the best and most comprehensive service to each and every customer.

We understand if you prefer to see the same optometrist on each of your visits and will arrange that for you. (Don’t worry if you can’t remember their name – we’ll be sure to know who you mean!) And we promise to always make time to really listen to what our patients are telling us. We’ll never rush you or dismiss worries. Giving each customer our fullest attention is the only way to be sure we are really understanding your needs and desires.

Multi-Sensory Training Centre

Your senses work as a team and so do we

Vision is not the only way you receive information about the world around you. Your hearing, balance and other senses all play a crucial part. Your senses work as a team (much like we do!) but it’s a delicate balance.

At our Multi-Sensory Training Centre, we can help if you think the balance may not be quite right in yourself or a loved one: We investigate the link between your vision and other senses to provide a complete assessment service. This can be life-changing for children and adults experiencing problems with visual processing, dyslexia symptoms, balance and coordination, Autism and ASD and many other learning and development difficulties.
