I used Séamus for some work a few years ago on Andy's recommendation and he was great.

I've recently found a pair of old Moscot Nebb I've worn a lot that I've like to bring back into rotation, but would like to remove some light scratches and mainly bring back some shine.
Is this something a polish can do? Any optician can do it or should I look at someone with specific skills?

What's your style / what kind of style frames do you like?

If they're very light scratches then they may polish out. If they're a bit deeper then the acetate would need to be sanded back a bit and then deep polished. Not all opticians would be able to do it. You'd probably be better off looking for a frame restorer (like an Italian Séamus at The Optical Workshop). Or a jeweller with a polishing wheel.

Thanks Andy!
Scratches are minor, a polish should do.

^^^ Jonathan in Eye Contacts is an absolute legend, some of the best customer service I've ever had in a shop.

A genius at matching frames to faces, which you'd think all opticians would be good at, but he's the best.
