We will, for now, be open by appointment only and closed on Sundays and Mondays.
For the time being we will operate a one person at a time policy and adjustment, repairs, dispensing and collections will need to be done by appointment. Each of these will require a different amount of time so please call or email the store to book to ensure we can give you the time you need. We won’t turn away anyone who simply turns up, but they may be asked to return later as we will have to fit them in with existing appointments.
Sterilisation and PPE
Please wear a face covering when you come to the store, there may be times when you will need to remove it but only if you feel comfortable and it is safe to do so. All frames, sunglasses and measuring devices will be sterilised after each use using UV-C sterilisation and all surfaces and equipment will be cleaned with 75% isopropyl alcohol. We will have alcohol-based hand sanitiser at the front of the shop and masks, visors and gloves readily available, as well as regular hand-washing facilities with single use paper towels.
Eye Examination Appointments
We are now able to perform eye examinations if your prescription has expired or you feel it has changed. Just call the store to book.
We look forward to seeing you again soon.
With very best wishes,
Steenie and the Team
