What patients say :


Farmilo Optometrists has had a branch on Leicestershire’s fashionable Queens Road since 1991. Our reputation has been enhanced by the positive recommendations and word of mouth we have generated due to our customers being delighted with the excellent, personal service we provide.

” My husband likes to see an independent optician as he has a complex problem with his eyes to add to this he needs a wheelchair accessible building, well Farmilo met his needs and more. They took time and care to make the eye site test trouble free and they also took care and time to help him choose his new frames. To find such service and care very reassuring and we would recommend FARMILO without a doubt. When we went to collect them ,again they made sure he was happy . So thank you all .”


Kate Hefford

” Having broken my glasses late on a Saturday afternoon they made time to fit me in before they closed and ordered my new ones first thing Monday. They were ready by Tuesday! Great service, especially from David

Tania Rowlett

Very helpful and welcoming staff who make the experience of visiting the practice far more than just an eye test or purchase of glasses.

The quality of service is outstanding employing all of the latest technology to determine your eye health, when purchasing glasses I didn’t feel I was being urged to buy the most expensive ones and many options and deals were offered.

I would highly recommend Farmilo’s over any of the chain opticians. “


Fantastic professional service. Even saw me with an eye problem at the last minute and prescribed me appropriate treatment. Offered to check up on me if not sorted. Luckily it was much better with the treatment so no need. Very appreciated.

I have been served by Farmilo Optometrists for some thirty years.  During my last visit I was introduced to a new piece of equipment – the 3D OCT Scan which I under stand improves their ability to keep a check on the condition of the eyes.  Farmilo keeps a check on the intervals between my visits and had reminded me one was due.  As ever I was treated most courteously and promptly on my visit.

Mr E. Kendall Clark

We were really happy to find Farmilo – friendly, knowledgeable and with good advice and a great range of frames to choose from.  The folks in there are always happy to see you, and spend time understanding what lenses and glasses you are looking for, and make a good job of selecting options that match what you asked for, and some that may push the boundaries a bit, but help you make the best choice. “


” I have been wearing my new glasses for less than 24 hours, but I wanted to say how much they have transformed my vision already. Last evening I found my eyes far less tired at the end of the day than they have been.

The service has been fantastic; it was only a week between having my eye-test and receiving my new glasses. Please thank all the staff on my behalf, and let me wish you all a very Happy Christmas. “

Andy Kelly

” This was my first time at Farmilos. The Queens Road branch and what a lovely experience it was.  From the warm welcome I received to the excellent and thorough examination I had. I was a little apprehensive at the thought of a different Optician but I was quickly reassured and had the best eye test I have ever had. A change of spectacles was required and I was delighted to see Sue has transferred from the Francis Street branch to Queens Road. She is excellent at helping you choose the frames, she always seems to know what will suit you, to her excellent fitting skills. A real gem! Everyone who works there seems  so skilful, friendly and  helpful. A real pleasure and i’m delighted with my new specs “

Bev Barnsley
