Hello does anyone know of a good and reasonable optician, as I need glasses for reading, computing and watching television. Thank you

I strongly recommend Eye Contact on TOTK Road. It's next to Moulia fish and chip shop just up from the Pit Stop pub.

Excellent service and a good price.

We have used George's Optical House for the last 20 years without a problem.

He even corrected my wife's prescription that Specsavers had managed to get wrong twice!!

Interesting Josef. I'm beginning to wonder if it would be cheaper for me to get my next glasses in Cyprus rather than the UK. My latest variable focus lenses with cheapest possible frames cost me £320 in the UK. Do you think it would be cheaper in Cyprus?

If your only criteria is 'cheap', then the UK is the place to go.
However, take not of my comment below, that Specsavers had 2 goes at getting my wife's prescription right and failed.
George sorted it immediately.

My last (2013) varifocals with frames cost around 110 euros at Eye Contact. When I went for my latest test, Panicos said that the change in my eyesight didn't warrant getting new glasses, so didn't sell me any. No charge for the eye test either.
