Notting Hill, London
Thank you so very much for my wonderful glasses – received safely today. They are perfect. I have to admit that I was somewhat worried about the bi-focal aspect but the differentiation is very subtle and works a treat. I have been converted!
I also received a letter from Oliver Goldsmith – such a lovely surprise. I think I can guess who may have generated that … ! So very special and will go into my box of treasures.
Hard to believe that we stumbled across Blankstone Opticians by accident to purchase a pair of off the peg readers. And by missing the sign to ring the bell – and almost breaking down your entrance door – it swiftly became obvious to both of us that it was time to get our eyes tested again! Our memories are full of pre-Christmas laughter and a very professional service. The moment I described the shape and style of what I was looking for you immediately selected the perfect frames.
We will be coming back to Liverpool at the beginning of March. Mal would very much like to book an eye test on Thursday 8th and I will bring the frames that I have at home that will be ideal for driving lenses that I would like to have made up. I hope this will be possible and will call you closer to the time to confirm.

Sales & Marketing Director for Fabrik Studio & Voyage Magazine Liverpool John Lennon Airport
I am a new customer of Blankstone Opticians and I have to say having been to numerous opticians for eye tests and to purchase glasses that nothing compares to the level of service and quality at Blankstone Opticians.
Each and every member of Mark’s team are both friendly and professional and it was a joy to visit Mark’s business.
The whole experience was amazing and Mark offers a truly personal service and clearly loves to share his passion for quality eye wear and eye health. I would not hesitate to recommend Blankstone Opticians to anyone as once you have been you will ask yourself why you ever went elsewhere.
CEO Bay TV Liverpool, Chairman, Local TV Network
Very happy to recommend Mark and his company, since I feel it is important to back local businesses that provide a top-class service in a world where there are too many supermarket style operations. Our eyesight is a precious gift and Mark’s outfit is one you can feel confident entrusting the care of it to.

I have been a customer of Blankstone Opticians for nearly 20 years and in that time Mark and his team have always provided a first class service. There are not many companies that greet you by name when you arrive and it’s this personable service that keeps me coming back for more. Keep up the good work Mark!
Carol Cavanagh Maddock
Managing Director at Alphabet Design
I have been a customer of Mark Blankstone for a number of years and the reason I go back time and again is because I am always
impressed with the high standard of professionalism, quality and product range. I love wearing glasses and many people comment on how stylish my frames are. I have three current pairs from Mark which I swap and change to match my outfits, however, it’s time that I bought new pair! – See you soon Mark

Director & General Manager, Resitech Limited
Mark and the staff at his practice were able to help me out with a unique problem relating to single eye special contact lenses when the bigger high street “should have gone to” names did not seem to have the time nor the inclination. Highly recommended
I’ve been a customer of Marks for many years now. I’ve always enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere of his shop. There is no hard sell from Mark. He’s always happy to show you a number of frames that suit you and time is never a problem. I’ve only ever been complimented by family and friends when I’ve got a new pair of glasses from Mark.
Owner, Doran Kennedy Estate Agents Ltd
I find Mark to be a very professional caring optician, I have been a client of Mark’s for many years, upon one of my routine check ups I was diagnosed with a detached retina, Mark arranged for me to attend St Pauls Eye Hospital for successful surgery. I would without doubt recommend him.
Property Portfolio Manager at Murdoch University
I have used Blankstone Opticians for several years for both glasses and, more recently, contact lenses. Mark has always provided a really quality service. In particular, the aftercare I have received since starting with lenses has been excellent.
Owner, Hill Dickinson LLP
I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Blankstone Opticians. In early 2010 I had what could have been a serious eye condition and Mark quickly organised an examination by one of his ophthalmologists. The condition was quickly and correctly diagnosed and Blankstone’s then assisted in arranging follow up treatment at St Paul’s Eye Hospital.
Lawyer at Advanced Medical Solutions Group plc
Mark provides a fantastic service through Blankstones Opticians, which is positioned conveniently on the doorstep of the commercial district in Liverpool. The ever-changing selection of spectacles is unique in the city and allows you to wear your glasses confident that not everyone will be wearing the same pair! Selecting a pair of glasses that suit you can be difficult and Mark’s expert and HONEST advice are invaluable not to mention his excellent interpersonal skills which mean the overall experience is a pleasure not the chore you first imagine. I also purchase contact lenses through Blankstones and the consultant opticians are excellent. You don’t even need to remember when you’re due for your next check-up, which for someone who is very busy with work is great. The diary system prompts Blankstones to contact you and you even get a courtesy call on the day of your appointment to confirm it is going ahead as scheduled. No hesitation in providing this recommendation!
Owner at Catena (Nottingham) Limited
I used Blankstones Opticians when I was in Liverpool initially because they had such a wide choice of frames! I have a difficult prescription, especially for one eye, which often leads to me having glasses which look like milk bottle bottoms! However, Mark was able to suggest a selection of frames which would work with the prescrption I required and I was also able to get prescription sunglasses – and still look stylish!
Publicists & Marketers
Mark and Blankstone Opticians have become a leading player in the North West because of his and his company’s ethos. It’s an owner-operated business and you get Mark when you make contact…and feel very well looked after – what everyone wants when its their health. They also stock some exclusive ranges of specs and sunglasses that you genuinely cant buy outside of London. Mark is one of the most personable guys i know in business and i think everyone finds that when they deal with him. It goes a long way to explaining Blankstone Opticians’ success.

Mark is a very effficient personable Optician whom i have i have no hesitation in recommending.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your kindly courtesy and professionalism during the last (I think) 16 years – my recollection is that you have been my optician since I returned to the UK from South Africa in 2001. During that time I have always been impressed by the calm and friendly atmosphere that exists at Blankstone Opticians – you always took the time and trouble to personally greet people and both you and your Reception staff made me feel that my custom was important. Furthermore, I never felt pressurised into buying new / expensive spectacles when my inclination was not to do so – for that courtesy I also thank you.
