An important update on Covid-19 and our stores

An update on the Covid-19 virus and our stores

Given the unprecedented situation in the UK regarding the COVID-19 virus we feel that it is important to reassure you that we are continuing to keep our practice clean and safe for both you and our team. We intend to keep the practices open for as long as possible to provide the service that is needed for our patients.

You will appreciate that as an optical practice we work in an environment where the prevention of the spread of a whole range of infections is woven into everything that we do. Nevertheless, we are paying particular attention the latest government guidance on the transmission of coronavirus.

All of the frames on display, the equipment we use and all surfaces are cleaned and disinfected regularly to keep the practice as sterile as needed and as often as needed.

Know the guidance

Before attending the practice for your next appointment, we would be grateful if you would review the most up to date government guidance – just click this link https://www/nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covd19/

Keep us in the loop

Please remember that we are open, as normal, and to call us on the practice telephone number or email us to let us know if you wish to reschedule any of your booked appointments. We would be happy to schedule an alternative date for you. 

At your next appointment

Please forgive us if we don’t shake hands – but we are however happy to do the elbow bump – just ask! 

You’ll notice that we’ve removed some non-essential items in the reception area including the magazines. They will return once this is all over!

As a team, we are doing everything we possibly can to remain fit, well and able to work so that we can continue to provide our usual high standard of dental care for you.

Thank you for your support in keeping everyone safe.

Contact lenses

Contact lenses are an excellent vision-correction solution for those seeking freedom from their frames. Not only are they invisible but nowadays the technology and lens materials have moved on so much that you can barely feel the lenses in your eyes. Comfort and convenience are paramount and we guarantee they’ll have a transformative effect on your vision.

But perhaps you’ve had a negative experience with contact lenses in the past? Are you squeamish about the idea of touching your eyes? Or are worried that they may not be available in your prescription? Our highly qualified and expert team are here to allay your concerns during our contact lens assessment, during which we’ll take the time you need to guide you through the contact lens process step by step and find a lens to suit your lifestyle.

As an independent practice we’re not tied to a single contact lens supplier, so can obtain lenses from any leading brand. We tend to recommend Cooper Vision’s silicone hydrogel Clariti lenses due to their wide range of fits and exceptionally comfortable material. We are also one of the few opticians practices in the area to specialise in the fitting of rigid gas permeable and multi-focal contact lenses.

All of our optometrists fit contact lenses to adults and to children and, of note, Dr. Claudia Ashleigh has recently completed several years of research into multifocal contact lenses and is our expert in this area.

We are currently looking at preventing or slowing down the rate of progression of myopia (short sight) and are actively considering investing in equipment that will allow us to follow results.

If you’d like to book a contact lens assessment, please contact one of our branches.
