COVID-19 Update 24th March

Optometrists have been advised that they can continue to practice with new protocols in place, as long as they feel comfortable doing so. At the moment, that is certainly the case here.

We are implementing the change in the practice where Simon only wants to see patients in the ‘at risk’ group early in the morning when we can shut the shop off to the public. This will ensure that they do not have contact with anyone else.

Moving forward, Simon wants to maintain as much separation in the practice between people as possible. This might mean waiting outside for a short period of time, 5-10 minutes, if you are collecting glasses or making appointments.

For all contact lens wearers, to avoid the need to come into the practice, we do have the option of shipping the contacts directly to you if that option suits you better at this time.
