Our patients really are our greatest advocates and their testimonials capture the best of what we offer.

Stuart Henderson, Practice Principal at G.T. Harvey & Partners, said: “It is a source of deep personal and professional pride to us that our patients speak so highly and willingly about the eye care and services we provide for them…”

“A very friendly, efficient and professional service.”

“Having recently discovered that I needed to wear prescribed spectacles in order to carry out my work. I enquired about purchasing a pair of prescribed sports spectacles to use whilst riding my bicycle. G.T Harvey and Partners supplied me with a pair of Adidas Pro-Ones which I am delighted with.

They are brilliant in all light conditions. The staff at G.T. Harvey and Partners encouraged me to take my bicycle to the practice so that they could position the bi-focal lines precisely to enable me to see clearly ahead and also look at my handlebar computer without moving my head whilst riding my bicycle. They took time over this until they were completely satisfied that they had it just right.

G.T. Harvey and Partners provide a very friendly, efficient and professional service with great products too.”

“I know that any possible problem will be dealt with early”

“My family and I have been coming to G.T. Harvey and Partners for very many years. We have been impressed at their constant updating of equipment and amazed at the detail that can be monitored.

As my eyes are ageing I know that any possible problem will be dealt with early. This gives me such reassurance. It is wonderful to see some of the pictures resulting from the tests.

My daughter has such confidence in them that she is in contact even from Australia.”

“Giving our two girls amazing sight”

“We just want to say again a huge thank you for everything. The prospect of getting Martha into Ortho k lenses has been at the back of my mind for four years, since you worked your magic with Molly. I still can’t believe that she’s managed it, but all with your constant support.

Your kindness, professinoalism and never ending patience (that’s the particular one I struggled with as her mum!) has made this transition so (relatively) painless, and now she can see!

We want to thank everyone at this fantastic practice (in particular Stuart), for introducing us as a family to Ortho k lenses, giving our two girls amazing sight that hopefully means they wont end up like their mum!”

“We have complete confidence in Stuart and his team”

“My name is John Quince and I have been a client of G.T. Harvey and partners for the past 67 years! My wife and son are also clients of Mr Stuart Henderson. This in itself, show our high esteem of the practice.

During this time, the practice has developed and changed in line with the advancement in technology, whist still maintaining the all important human touch which is so essential to the client.

Trust is of paramount importance when dealing with something as precious as eyesight and we have complete confidence in Stuart and his team. In addition to having our eyes tested, we also feel as though we have had a thorough health examination! In our opinion, this sort of treatment can only be delivered by a dedicated independent practitioner and we could never envisage a time when we would even consider looking elsewhere”

Mr B. Towns

A patient since 1953

“G.T. Harvey and Partners have provided my eye care since 1953 and during that time I have witnessed many advances in the technology used in the practice.”

“As my eyes have aged, I have been aware of the need to ensure that the clinical advice I receive is founded, evidence based, findings. This reassures me that the continuing monitoring can detect anomalies at a much earlier stage and their appropriate treatment would be available to me sooner.

The staff are all attentive and caring with a sensitivity that ensures I am confident in the care that I receive. The service is outstanding.”

Mr Bill Dobson

A patient since 2010

“I had the most thorough eye examination.”

“This was the first time I’ve used G.T. Harvey and Partners: a small practice with a very high level of customer care. I had the mot thorough eye examination, with clear comprehensive feedback throughout. But this practice also has two qualified and experienced Dispensing Opticians whose advice and guidance is so invaluable. The Dispensing Optician spent more time with me than the eye examination took. I know that proper dispensing is essential to get the full benefit of the initial examination and G.T. Harvey gives an excellent dispensing service – well above any competition that I have experienced.

My varifocals were not cheap because I selected an expensive frame and lenses; but I’m so delighted with the standards and service I received, that I rate this as excellent value for money. I recommend G.T. Harvey very highly.”

“Meticulous care and attention”

“I suffer from moderate myopia and have needed spectacles for distance vision from my early teens. I have always avoided wearing them whenever possible.

In 1970 I began wearing contact lenses: hard lenses at first, then later gas permeable ones. G.T. Harvey provided me with the varifocal spectacles, reading spectacles and contact lenses throughout this period. I had no trouble with the contact lenses for a long time but around 2006/2007my eyes began to lose tolerance, probably due to my advancing age and wearing lenses became more and more uncomfortable.

In 2007 the science of orthokeratology was explained to me and I began to wear what I call my ‘overnight lenses’. I believe I am the oldest person G.T. Harvey has prescribed these lenses for. In the early stages my progress was monitored on a day-by-day basis and at regular short intervals thereafter.”

I am extremely grateful for the meticulous care and attention I have received then and since from some really nice people.

I have been using my overnight lenses for over two years now. It’s not too much to say that they will ‘change your life’. I wish they had been available sixty years ago.
