Does anyone know of an optician that uses modern technology to get the prescription and other measurements correct?

  • Hello Chris, I recommend Dr CH Lim in Crouch End. He is very experienced and really good at dealing with more complex cases, though I have no idea about how modern his technology is. He's at Topsfield Parade, 16 Tottenham Lane, London N8 8PR tel 020 8348 8615.

    • Thank you. This is most helpful.
