The UK is finally fully opening up again after a long period of social distancing. It’s the perfect time to get all of our ‘life admin’ in order – and a trip to your local opticians is the perfect example of an important task for your checklist!
Here are 6 reasons to visit a local optician this month and ensure your eyes remain in tip-top condition.
1. Our Eyes are Strained from Long Periods of Screen Time
Working from home over the past year has left our eyes strained and tired. Digital screens emit blue light which can be harmful to our eyes over time, especially when the majority of said time is spent in front of them.
A visit to your local opticians is the best way to counteract this: you’ll receive expert advice on preventing computer eye strain, as well as assurance that their overall health remains satisfactory.
2. Ensure Your Prescription is Up to Date
After multiple lockdowns over the last few months, your prescription likely needs updating. Routine check-ups understandably became scarcer while we were being more vigilant. Now that things are opening up again, though, it’s the perfect time to make sure your prescription is current and meets your vision needs.
3. It’s Time to Refresh Your Style with Some Fashionable Frames
It’s amazing what a fresh pair of frames can do for your look! For many of us, we’ve had the same pair of glasses frames for a long time now. While there’s nothing wrong with this, now is a great time to update your look and hit the town with one of the latest glasses styles.
4. Get Your Child’s Eyecare Sorted Before Schools Reopen
With schools breaking up for the summer holidays, it’s the perfect time for our kids to not only have a break but get their own needs seen as well. The period between school years is the best time for your kids to visit your local opticians and ensure their sight remains comfortable and functional for them.

5. Build a Lasting Relationship with Your Local Opticians
Consistently visiting the same independent opticians for all your eyecare needs has a major benefit: your optician will understand your case like no one else can, providing you with the advice and care that comes from a familiarity with your circumstances. Maintaining this important relationship is simply a case of revisiting your local opticians for your check-ups or whenever you need your eyes seen to!
