COVID-19

Our Doors May Be Closed But The Phone Lines Are Open

If you have an emergency, please call us (01592 751460) and this will allow Mrs Rach to speak to you and decide the best course of action. If you do require an appointment with an Optometrist, she will refer you to the appropriate person.

As of 7th April, emergency eye appointments are only available from a limited number of practices. These have Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required to reduce the risk of infection for both the optometrist and the patient. As we don’t have the appropriate PPE, we can no longer see any patients.

We are still here for you though – please don’t be stuck.

Opticians are still the first port of call for eye emergencies and we aim to keep it this way, particularly during these difficult times. The NHS is under a lot of a strain so please help them to help you by calling us with any ocular emergencies.

If you have broken your glasses, lost your glasses, or lost, damaged or run out of contact lenses, please call us and we will advise you of what to do.

If you are concerned that you or a member of your family may have contracted Coronavirus, or if you are in need of some advice, please visit NHS inform before you call NHS24. Please click the link below to help determine whether you need to contact them:

As always, look after yourselves, look after each other.

From our family to yours, stay safe.
