The best opticians. Stuart (Mr Henderson) and the team have been looking after my family's eyes for longer than I have been alive. They're a friendly and professional team with easy access in a prime, city centre location. They also pride themselves on being experts in their field - examinations are thorough, wide-ranging and definitely not simply 'How far down can you read?". When I go for my bi-annual eye test, it's as if I am going to catch-up with an old friend I haven't seen for a while. It is this personal touch that really sets GT Harvey apart as an optician. You're not a customer, client or patient here. You're a friend and you know you will get open, honest advice. Whether you have problems with your eyesight or not; if you're looking for an optician in the Tyne & Wear area, this is the place to be. Thank you GT Harvey's. 100% recommend.

G.T. Harvey & Partners helped me find my very first pair of spectacles at 42. Stuart carried out a very thorough eye test (my first in 15 years) and found the right prescription for me. It was a very personalised experience and the team helped me pick out frames that would fit, suit and be right for my needs. I'd highly recommend G.T. Harvey, especially if you haven't worn glasses before.

I had to attend the optician three times recently. I was nervous about going under these unusual circumstances. All of the staff at Harvey's made me feel comfortable and safe. I changed my optician a few years ago to Harvey's on recommendation from two friends who had been going there for years.My first appointment was very thorough and Stuart picked up my glaucoma which had been missed previously. I always feel confident that my eye health is in good hands. The staff who help me choose my frames are also excellent. I don't worry about getting it wrong. Thank you everyone for excellent service

The team are super professional and equally friendly. The eye assessments are second to none. The advice on frames I find invaluable. I have personally recommended to several friends who have all been equally pleased with the service.

I’ve been going to G. T Harvey’s since I was 8 years old. Stuart wasn’t there then (he hadn’t been born😂) I really enjoy my appointments and all the eye tests,they get more hi-tech every visit! I have always hated wearing glasses 🤓 which amuses Stuart 🤣 However the care and professional approach given by all staff is of such a high standard I wouldn’t go anywhere else to get something I don’t like😂😂
