Eye Care Provision through the COVID 19 outbreak

We have changed our opening hours to make sure that we have the staff and the time to continue providing safe and consistent eye care all through the current outbreak. I thought it would be good to highlight what is going on in the practice at the moment and ways we can help you. We will remain open to ensure that anyone who needs urgent eye care and replacement glasses or lenses can get help.

All patients are asked to wash their hands before going through for an eye test or try on any glasses

New shields have been placed on our equipment to help reduce contact when we are examining your eyes.

All equipment has always been cleaned down between each patient and we have always washed our hands between seeing every patients and handling a persons glasses.

We are asking any vulnerable patients if they would like us to contact them in a few months time to come in for their routine eye test.

Contact lenses can be paid for online or over the phone and delivered out to you free of charge.

Our credit card machine is wiped down after each use and we wash our hands after handling money.

At the end of every day we disinfect all surfaces in the practice that staff or patients have been in contact with.

We are asking anyone who feels unwell to not come in and re-book when they are better and through their self isolation period

All frames are being sanitized after being tried on

Our waiting area has been rearranged to aid social distancing and toys & magazines have been removed

We are able to deliver/ post out any glasses that need collected or repaired

We can also deliver/ post out any eye drops or accessories needed

If you need replacement glasses or contact lenses but are not able to come into the practice we can get an optometrist to phone you for a consultation so we are able to safely deliver/ post out whatever you need. 

We will remain open to ensure that anyone who needs urgent eye care and replacement glasses or lenses can get help.

Advice to contact lens wearers

It is vital to ensure that you wash your hands with warm water and soap using the correct technique before handling your contact lenses. If you use monthly disposable lenses please clean your case regularly with warm water and soap and allow to air dry before use. Please make sure that you use the correct disinfecting solution to clean your lenses thoroughly.

You can order and pay for your contact lenses by phone and have them posted out to you directly. You can also buy lenses from us online.

Advice to glasses wearers

Wearing glasses has been shown to act as a barrier to prevent Coronavirus entering the body via the eyes. It is important to sanitize your glasses daily.

Wash your glasses including all the frame parts and lenses with warm (not hot) water and a small amount of soap. Rinse thoroughly then pat dry on a soft towel.

Finish by using an alcohol based cleaning spray and microfiber cloth to clean the lenses.

Please note that some frames are made of a material that should not have alcohol based products used on it.
