As someone who is very short sighted glasses are an integral part of my life. The health of my eyes is most important but also I want a frame that is stylish and flattering. At Pullen and Symes in Ottery I have found the perfect combination in David and Nicki Pullen. Professional expertise in eye care and experienced help in choosing and fitting frames that suit me and my prescription.
Add to this friendly and informed reception staff and you have a first class team in Pullen and Symes. How lucky we are to have them in a small town like Ottery St. Mary.

My family & I have been using Pullen & Symes for a number of years & would not hesitate to recommend them to others, and indeeed regularly do so. I was advised to contact Nicki Pullen with a problem that a major "high street" optician had failed to correctly diagnose or treat; in a very short space of time she had identified & solved the problem & in the process provided me with a significantly improved level of eye comfort. Nicki & David & their team are always helpful and considerate & achieve the perfect balance of professional advice in a friendly & relaxed atmosphere.

Dear Mr Pullen, thank you so much for your time this morning. I realise I'm probably not the easiest person to please when it comes to the kind of spectacles I'd like to end up with. Best wishes & thanks. I've not had such good care & advice on spectacles for over 40 years when I first started to wear them full-time.

Just a small gift from my husband & I to say how much we appreciated your thoroughness, gentleness & patience recently. We couldn't have found better treatment anywhere else I'm sure. What a difference a good pair of glasses has made to me! thank you so much.

Kay and I have been pleased to come to Pullen & Symes recently, following disappointing service by one of the larger opticians, who have been attending to us for many years. The care & courteous attention you have been prepared to show us is greatly appreciated. I was particularly pleased, in my own case, that Mrs Pullen was able to give me such sage advice in relation to my peripheral vision test, which was relevant to my own problem of possible damage to my optic nerves. The Endocrine Specialist who has recently dealt with me has confirmed the accuracy of Mrs Pullen's comments, which shows there is no such damage. Many thanks to her for getting that absolutely right! We wish you both every success for the future & we shall be pleased to come to you again. We shall also be pleased to recommend your practice.
