Royles Opticians has welcomed patients back to the practice following a major refit which included a completely new interior and improved facilities for patients and staff. The main reception area has been expanded and sight testing rooms remodelled for ease of use.

Having served the local community since 1965, the independent practice sees the project as a clear commitment to its future in Longton.

Optometrist Sue Cutts, who owns the practice jointly with optometrist colleague Delia Cliffe, said the refit represented a major investment for the successful firm.

"We have a very loyal customer base both from Longton itself and from a wide surrounding area. We want to provide not only the very best eye care but a really up-to-date environment for patients," she said.

"We have consistently invested in the very latest technical equipment and now we have a practice to match. It has a light, very modern interior – patients and staff are delighted with it."

Sue added that quality eye examinations and personal service had given Royles a real competitive advantage.

"We pride ourselves on giving individual attention to our patients," she said. "We also make regular new additions to our choice of frames and the new practice interior is the ideal setting to display them."

Guests at a ribbon-cutting ceremony included colleagues from the firm's sister practice, James Herd Opticians in Tunstall, and one of its founding partners, Chris Royle, who retired in 2007.
