To our wonderful patients:
We hope you are all staying healthy. Your health, and our employees health, whilst caring for your eyes is top priority, as always. With this in mind we will be ceasing all ROUTINE appointments early this week.
From tomorrow, we will be open daily BY APPOINTMENT only. Our phone lines will be well manned for enquiries, bookings and orders. Please do not visit without an appointment, so that we can manage social distance. Delivery or doorstop collection will be arranged for products such as contact lenses, drops and spectacles.
All urgent and emergency services will remain available. Some routine consultations will be via telephone, rather than face to face.
All contact lens orders and eye drop orders can be taken via telephone as usual and delivery arranged.
We will be contacting all patients as they are due appointments and conducting screening and consultations with an Optometrist over the phone where possible – particularly routine contact lens check ups.
Our telephones will be manned daily and an Optometrist will be available every day.
Please get in contact with any queries and very importantly, get in contact if you are experiencing problems with your eyes. Problems should not be ignored.
These measures are to ensure that we all stay healthy and maintain social distance.
Further updates will be announced as necessary, in line with advice from NHS and Public Health England.
Stay safe and stay well.
