What Our Battersea Clients Say…

As retired optometrist, I was looking for someone to give me a thorough eye examination, so I could feel assured my eyes would be looked after as I get older. My wife, who was not an optometrist, wanted someone who could make her feel at ease during her eye test. I can give no higher praise than to say than to say that both our hopes were fully met by Sophie and her friendly team.

Having been to so many different opticians in the past, it was finally a huge relief to find Taylor-West. The whole experience from start to finish was seamless. The Taylor-West team are extremely professional, knowledgeable, reassuring, friendly and what I really liked, was that they took time to talk through with me the results of my very thorough eye test/scan etc. Every part of the examination was explained to me beforehand in detail.

I really felt like they cared about the service they were providing and cared about me, as a customer. The shop is beautifully laid out with some stunning frames. I absolutely recommend Taylor-West & want to take this opportunity to thank them for looking after me so well.


 I can’t recommend enough. This is such a different experience to a chain optician. Sophie is amazing and dealt with my really complicated prescription, which two other opticians haven’t been able to. The frames are really stylish and not ones i have seen anywhere else. I could not be happier with the service.


I’ve been a customer of Taylor-West for 4 years now, and Sophie and the team always provide a fantastic, professional service. As someone with a particularly ‘awkward’ keratoconus prescription, I’d all but given up hope of getting a decent level of vision back, but Sophie worked a miracle! Would recommend to anyone.


I have been going to Taylor-West for 5 years now and the service is excellent and very professional. They have a huge range of glasses in all styles, and I just found a new pair I love. Feel luck to have such a good local optician to see.

The Taylor-West & Co Specialist Contact Lenses

Leaving with a pair of glasses isn’t the only outcome of our eye test near Battersea – you can also get fitted for contact lenses if glasses aren’t for you.

Our expert optometrists in Battersea have extensive experience in the fitting of a range of contact lenses, from standard to complex lenses we love to see our clients see the world with more clarity with their new contact lenses.

We believe that there is almost always a lens out there for you, so whether you’ve been told you have a prescription that is too high or tricky to be a suitable candidate for contact lenses, come and chat with us to see what we can do for you.

The reality is that there are very few people who are genuinely unsuitable candidates for contact lenses, so visit our opticians in Battersea, London, to find the perfect lenses for you.

A typical contact lens fitting with Taylor-West & Co opticians in Battersea will contain the following:

  • Initial consultation:
    Our optometrists will complete a highly accurate eye assessment which includes careful measurements and scans of your corneas. We will also take the time to talk about your lifestyle, current visual needs, and lifestyle – such as if you look at screens for a majority of the day. This session will also include the trying of some lenses and, once we’ve found a perfect fit, we will order some of them for you.
    Some of our lenses need to be custom-made in the UK or the US, so they may arrive in as little as a few days or as much as three weeks.
  • Collection appointment:
    Once your lenses arrive at our opticians in Battersea, you’ll have the chance to try them out again and see if they work as planned – if not, we’ll re-order your contact lenses with the appropriate modifications.
    If your contact lenses are perfect for you, we’ll teach you how to put them in your eye, remove them, and look after them so they remain sanitary. Additionally, you’ll be able to take them home to try out in the real world to see if they really are satisfactory.
  • Follow-up / Second collection appointment:
    From here, you’ll have had the chance to try out your new contact lenses. You’ll need to come back to our opticians in Battersea so that we can monitor your progress with them and see how you’ve been getting on. If there have been no issues, you’ll be able to keep them and return in 2 months for another check-in. If there are problems, we can modify them for you or try a different kind of lens that is more suited to your eyes.
  • Second follow-up / Third collection appointment / Regular check-ups:
    If you require it, your second follow-up and third collection appointments will follow the same route as before until we find the perfect contact lenses for you. Once the fitting is completed and you’ve received your perfect lenses, you’ll need to come back to our opticians in Battersea for a checkup every six months so we can see how you’re getting on.

The entire fitting process can be completed in as little as two visits, however, it can take months before we find the right lenses together. Once we’ve found them, though, and following your monthly check-ups, you should be able to wear your new contact lenses comfortably.

  • Standard contact lens refit (existing wearer) £120
  • Standard contact lens fitting (new wearer) £200
