IF you’re looking for an optical package offering both high quality and excellent value, then head for Blink Vision Centre at 201-203 Park Lane, Kidderminster (by Matalan).

Now celebrating its fifth year in the town, Blink has gained an impressive reputation for meeting its customers’ exact requirements and for friendly and professional service.

Partners Steve Barney, Justin Fowler and Paul Stevens have more than 60 years experience in the optical trade between them, and the bright and well-equipped centre is a one-stop shop for eye care.

Justin said: “Glasses seem to be getting more and more expensive and we recognised that there was a gap in the market for more affordable choices.

“The centre has been a great success and we’re always delighted to welcome new customers of all ages.”

Eye tests cost £20, tests for OAPs and under-16s are free and anyone buying glasses from Blink will receive a 50 per cent discount on the cost of the test on presentation of the voucher below. NHS vouchers can also be used and you can upgrade to any frame for £25 with an NHS voucher (not to be used in conjunction with any offer).

Once the test is complete, customers can take their time to browse more than 400 traditional, modern and designer frames and select the pair that suits them best with the help of expert guidance from the Blink team.

Among the designer brands on offer are Ted Baker, Guess by Marciano, Hackett, Gant and Converse.

Paul said: “Once the tricky part is over – actually choosing the frames you want – you won’t have to wait for weeks to put on your smart new glasses as we manufacture everything in our on-site lab. This reduction in costs is also passed on to the customer.”

Not to be missed are Blink’s current special offers: buy one, get one free from £59 and two pairs of designer glasses for £99 (includes single vision lenses).
