COVID-19 Update:

Hello to all our friends and patients, we hope that you and your families have kept well.
Our priority is to keep all patients and staff safe and well. We aim to remain open and continue to provide care to those that need it.
We have adapted well to the new way of working and have outlined some changes below so you will be best prepared for your appointment.

Before visiting:

On visiting:

Following the examination:

Although you are still able to browse our collection of frames, we have adapted a new method of dispensing where the dispenser will select frames for you to try based on your preferences, fit, size and budget. This ‘personal shopper’ approach has worked very well over the last few months and we have decided to continue with it going forward.

We may also offer to adjust the frames at the time of the dispense so that spectacles can be collected at the door without the need for a further fitting appointment. This may not be possible with some lenses.

We hope that you will understand and feel reassured by the many measures we have put in place to ensure the safety of all of our patients, including those most vulnerable. If you do not want to adhere to these protocols then we may be able to help you remotely or delay your appointment until it’s safe to do so.

If you would like to make an appointment, need telephone advice or would like further information on our protocols please call 01291 622269 or email

We look forward to welcoming you with a big smile behind those glamorous masks!
