Wonderful comments from wonderful customers

“A great family run Opticians that give personal service and attention to you. We switched from a high street chain because of the great service at Barnabys. They have a wide range of brands, many are unique that you don’t find in other opticians. They cater for adults and children for eye tests, glasses and contact lenses. Highly recommend.”


Best Opticians in Bournemouth & Poole. Fantastic eye test machine that flicks through lenses effortlessly until you find the perfect match – so precise. Very helpful staff and a wide array of glasses that you simply can’t find elsewhere in the main stream optician stores. Some impressive specs on offer – well worth a browse – highly recommended!”


Barnaby’s deserves 6 stars! Thorough eye examination with top of the range equipment. Staff are friendly and professional, and will help you get the perfect pair of specs from their wide and varied range. A great experience in a cosy environment. Recommended!”
