With the news of a potential new vaccine for the coronavirus, there finally seems to be some light at the end of a harrowing tunnel.
It seems likely that the second lockdown will continue for longer than first thought and we are acutely aware that our patients rely on us for their ongoing eyecare and this email is to reassure you that, as always, we will be here to take care of you through these very difficult times. We are designated as a key service and so we will be able to continue working normally in the coming months. We are therefore continuing to take all appointment bookings and of course following the strict same Covid protection protocols that have been in place for many months.
In line with current guidance and to protect our patients we are prioritising those with more urgent requirements. This may be changes to their vision, needing to update their glasses or sunglasses or concerns about the health of their eyes. However, we are now able to start to allocate appointments for those who require a routine consultation as well.
Extensive changes have been made to ensure that all appropriate protective measures are in place and we have plenty of hand wash and sanitiser available for everyone who comes to see us. For your protection and peace of mind, we are carrying out our Enhanced Eye Examination for everyone where appropriate.
