To whom it may concern,
After searching for ages for some fashionable new specs, I recently visited Jo Padmore Eyewear. Jo’s shop is very stylish and I was hoping her glasses would be too. I wasn’t disappointed – the range of styles was amazing. After a lengthy session – which involved trying on nearly every pair in the shop – I finally bought two pairs.
Jo and her staff are so welcoming, friendly and helpful that what started out as a bit of a chore turned into good fun. The visit gave my self confidence a boost and I came away excited about my purchase, knowing that time and expert care had been taken in advising me on suitable specs and lenses – in what represents a significant investment.
I have since returned several times and undergone a series of tests to check a variety of minor eye problems – some of which have bothered me for years. Jo always explains everything clearly and simply and I now have peace of mind about my eyes and vision – having undergone a thorough MOT.
Jo has also been helping me to master the art of administering soft contact lenses – so that I can finally bin my old rigid gas permeable ones. I’ve abandoned several previous attempts at this over the years, and still haven’t quite got the hang of it – but Jo is very patient so I know I’ll get there in the end! To anyone looking for a highly professional but very personal service in a relaxed atmosphere, I’d say – go and see Jo Padmore.
I’d say what makes Jo Padmore different to other opticians is the time they take finding the right frames for me and my prescription especially as I can’t see for myself. I’ve always been delighted with the results. I wear glasses all the time so it’s important I feel good in them. Although I moved away from the area I go back every year and it’s like seeing old friends rather than having an eye test. Many thanks to Jo, Lisa and all the team for taking care of my eyes and my appearance
Ref: Congratulations on Your New Practice
I’d like to congratulate you on launching "Jo Padmore Eyewear". As a spectacle wearer for many years it has been a delight to see your addition to the Didsbury highstreet.
At your practice I found the ranges refreshingly different, very stylish, and very individual (Something I have been unable to find anywhere else). The stylish appearance inside gave a great ambiance and feel, accompanied by your friendly and very helpful staff. All told, it made the whole experience a pleasure. From speaking with friends and colleagues your new venture has certainly been very well received with similar reaction.
As Didsbury has attracted many young professionals over recent years, becoming itself a vibrant, cool and fashionable place to live, I think that your choice has been an excellent one. I wish you all the best and look forward to enjoying the experience next time.
Just looked at it today for the first time. I think it’s good – it conveys all the things about the practice that I observe when I visit – the ambience of the shop, the range of frames (especially the links to manufacturers’ websites), Jo’s professionalism, the team’s individualised customer care and, of course, the gossip!
I will add it to my favourites!

I quite agree with the Opticians diagnosis of normal tension glaucoma in this patients case and it is particulartly useful to have such an excellent field result on the same machine as we do a good deal of our screening. Clearly, Miss Padmore has made a very clever and difficult diagnosis here and I am delighted with her diligence.
