COVID-19 SPECIAL MEASURES.
We are open for all types of appointment, although there is the new lockdown from Friday 23rd October we are still open as part of essential services.
Priority will be given to emergency appointments as requested from NHS Wales – but we are still able to do normal testing and contact lens care as well through this period.
We very much look forward to welcoming you into the practice, where we have full safety procedures in place to look after you whilst here.
A few important points:
- We ask that when attending an eye examination or contact lens appointment you do so alone wherever possible, as we have to be careful on the number of patients in the practice at any one time..
- If you wish to choose some new glasses or sunglasses, we recommend that you to arrange an appointment in advance as we need to strictly control the number of people in the practice. If you wish to bring another person with you when choosing new glasses, we will do our very best to accommodate this. Any glasses you try on will be held to one side and sterilised before being put back on display.
- If you need further supplies then we’re happy to continue posting these out. If you’d prefer to call in person, please phone ahead so that we can have these waiting for you.
