UPDATE DEC 2021:

We are taking bookings for Eye Examinations, Contact Lenses and Collections.

All visits to the practice are by appointment only and need to be pre-booked before arrival.

For the safety of our staff and patients, we have a restricted number of people in the practice. This enables us to sanitise the practice between each patient and allow safe distancing inside.

Due to the continuing situation, our clinic capacity is lower than it was previously, but we endeavour to see you as soon as possible.

We are open Monday – Friday 9.00am – 5.30pm & Saturday 9.00am – 4.00pm. Please leave a voicemail if we are unable to answer.
