Welcome Back!

We are delighted to say that we are now open for all routine eye care again! 

Due to the social distancing measures that we have put in place, we ask if you could kindly phone us first before attending, even if it is for just a spectacle adjustment or repair. We will then get you booked into an appointment slot. This helps us to better manage the spacing out of our patients throughout the day. We can sometimes also arrange a remote consultation by video or phone call for those who may be shielding.

We have made our practice as safe as possible, including social distancing, cleaning and hygiene regimes, and all the appropriate PPE for our staff.

We will also ask you to come wearing a face covering, and ideally on your own, or with just one other person if you need help.

If you were due for your eye examination during the lockdown, or will soon be due, please rest assured we will be in touch in due course. If you have any more pressing problem which you feel needs attention sooner, please give us a call.

Welcome back everyone…. we’ve missed you!
