    News round up

    Hi all, sorry the blog content has been a bit thin recently. So much has been happening and I have not had time to write long pieces for you. The big thing that has been happening is the alteration of the store. We have moved the back wall a little to give us a bigger room at the rear. What this allows us to do is to put an eye examination suite in the store! Finally we can offer the same level of service on the clinical side too. We have a top optometrist lined up and we are offering an eye test that last forty minutes as standard.

    This provides plenty of time for you to have a chat with the optometrist about anything that might have been concerning you regarding your eyes. One of my bugbears about the High St. opticians is that twenty minutes is just long enough for an eye test if you keep conversation to a minimum. Not much good if something has been bothering you or the optometrist finds something unusual.

    We will also be offering contact lenses as part of our services. Not that many of you are fans of contact lenses but it is nice to have the option for sport or a special occasion to have them. As with the frames and the spectacle lenses, we will focus on the better quality brands.

    Right now we are putting the finishing touches to the testing room so that we are ready on Saturday morning to welcome our first patient. I hope you will consider us as your provider of optometric services when you are next due an eye test and we look forward to showing you our facilities.
