Taking Care Of Eyes This Halloween

The College of Optometrists advises the  public to protect their eyes this Halloween

According to their research, 63% of those who plan to dress up as part of Halloween celebrations consider wearing cosmetic contact lenses. But only 27% of people would buy novelty lenses from their optometrist. This is despite it being illegal to sell contact lenses with no prescription in the UK without the supervision of a registered optometrist, dispensing optician or doctor.​​​​​​​

Glaucoma Awareness Week 2022

Glaucoma Awareness Week takes place from 27 June – 3 July 2022. This year’s campaign is called ‘Put your sight in the spotlight’ and calls for people to book an eye test. 

Booster vaccination against Coronavirus and Flu jab

We have had our Third/ Booster vaccination against Coronavirus on 7th October 2021 and the Flu vaccination on 7th October 2021 too!

We carry out regular lateral flow tests to ensure we are as safe as possible to see people.

We still maintain the strictest PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and infection control measures

Going fully electric

We now have a fully electric car with a range capable of covering our total domiciliary and corporate area.

We were thrilled to  receive the 1st vaccination on 20th January 2021

Lateral flow testing

Our staff are now being tested for Coronavirus by carrying out lateral flow tests twice a week.

CORONA VIRUS CRISIS – May 2020

The NHS halted all routine and domiciliary appointments in March 2020 but we have been available remotely for all patients who have been experiencing problems with their vision and you can access this service during normal office hours by ringing 07743730129 or 01132530904 and our Optometrist will discuss your eye problem and advise accordingly and maybe recommend self-treatments.

Following the Government’s announcement on Sunday of a phased approach to ease lock-down measures in England, we are presently working on a plan for safe re-starting of services. We are also waiting for the NHS to say that we can see routine patients again. We hope this time will be soon and as soon as we have this information we will update this page.

Thank you
