Following the removal of COVID-19 domestic  restrictions by the Prime Minister on Thursday 24th February 2022 we are continuing to act within the infection prevention and control guidance for healthcare settings in the UK. 
As an Optometric practice we are following guidelines laid out to us by our professional bodies to ensure we maintain the highest possible standards of infection control to keep our patients and staff safe from the continued risk of COVID-19. These guidelines include: 
Appointments required for every visit including fittings, adjustments, and repairs. 
Extended appointment times 
Managed Patient Flow 
Increased sanitisation routines 
Social Distancing Measures
Adapted Eye Examination routines to minimise close contact 
Perspex Screens at Reception and Full PPE worn by staff 
If you or any members of your household develop COVID-19 symptoms, please contact us to rearrange your appointment 
Whatever happens, we will be here in practice and contactable as follows:
01283 542482

Rest assured, we are working hard throughout this period to ensure that we continue to provide exceptional, personalised eye care in a safe manner.
