“I have been with Rees & Wade for a number of years and have always been really pleased with the attention I have received. I would not go anywhere else. The staff are brilliant and committed and always make you feel welcome. I just can’t say how things could be improved! I am sure existing customers will speak just as highly of the commitment and friendliness they receive and will agree with me they simply are the best!”

Diane Robinson,

“Both my husband and myself have unusual and difficult (but differing) eye problems that require a specialised Optometrist to dispense our lens prescriptions. We have found Alex Wade and his staff at Rees & Wade to give expert advice in a friendly but most professional and competent manner. Not always easily finding spectacle frames either to our personal liking, or frames to suit our individual requirements, staff have gone out of their way to order in frames for us and at a practical and reasonable price. We have recommended Rees & Wade to both our family and friends. ”

May Hall,

“Thank you so much for the excellent service I have received from you all especially when I had an accident with my glasses while out of the country. Every member of staff I have come into contact with when I visit Rees and Wade in Yarm have gone out of their way to help me and always give excellent customer service. Thank you – you really do care!”

Julie Hutchon,

“All the staff at Rees & Wade make me and my family welcome. The service is always great and the eye examination thorough. I never feel rushed and am always treated as an individual. All in all, it’s a great personalised service from a great team of professionals.”

Simon Stockley,
