BBR’s bespoke Tom Davies spectacles winner gains new lease of life!

4 July 2016

BBR Optometry’s special event showcasing the full range of bespoke Tom Davies spectacles has given one lucky Herefordshire woman a whole new lease of life!

Carolyn Steele, 73, from Marden, near Hereford, has been named the winner of a competition run as part of the event and is delighted she will now receive her new pair of Tom Davies spectacles for free.

She explained: “I had been thinking about buying some new spectacles for some time but it was only when I saw some Tom Davies frames when I went for my regular eye examination at BBR that I decided now was the right time to make the purchase.

“My timing couldn’t have been better as BBR were planning a special day when they would have the full range of Tom Davies frames on display at their St Owen Street practice in Hereford so I decided to wait until then so I could have a wider selection to choose from.

“I attended the event with my husband, Laurie, 74, who is also a patient at BBR, and we both fell in love with the frames straightaway as they are so different from anything we have worn before and I would happily have had a pair of all of them.

“There were so many colours to choose from and I loved the fact that the frames are all totally custom-made to ensure they are a perfect fit. As part of their bespoke service, Tom Davies also sends videos to their customers which chart every step of the production of the spectacles from the time the order is received until they are dispatched and this has made me feel really special, knowing they are being made just for me.

“In the past, I have always chosen half-rim stainless steel spectacles but really fancied something different and I can’t wait to see the reaction from my friends and family when they see my Tom Davies spectacles as they really have given me a new lease of life!” she added.

Daniel Read, Practice Manager, said: “Our recent refurbishment now means we can stock far more frames than ever before and I am delighted we can now offer the full Tom Davies range as well as many more exclusive brands.

“We are planning to hold similar events in the future and if anyone is interested in finding out more, can they please follow us on Facebook or else email their details to,” he added.  

Both Carolyn and Laurie also decided to become EyeLife members at BBR – a privileged client plan which, for a low monthly subscription, allows patients to have as many eye examinations as are required, priority appointments and up to a 35% discount on all spectacles and sunglasses.

Carolyn added: “We have been coming to BBR for many years but now seemed the perfect time to become an EyeLife member because it not only means we can save money but will also ensure we don’t miss out on any such exclusive events as this Tom Davies one in the future.”
