Eyecare during the Covid 19 Pandemic

I am delighted to update you with some extremely good news.

The practice is now open again following our extensive preparations to ensure that all appropriate protective measures are in place. We will be working in smaller teams but available between 9.00 – 5.30pm Monday – Saturday.

Initially 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

A few important points:

  • We ask that when attending an eye examination or contact lens appointment you do so alone wherever possible to help with social distancing.

  • If you wish to choose some new glasses or sunglasses, we recommend that you to arrange an appointment in advance as we need to 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.

  • To reduce the risk of spreading infection we will have hand sanitiser for you to use at the entrance and we ask you to come wearing a face mask.

  • If you need further supplies of contact lenses or eye drops, 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.

To arrange your appointment please call us on 020 8363 3578, our lines are open until 5.30pm each day and we are very busy, so we ask for your patience when calling.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Please take care and stay safe.

With my best wishes,

Deven Lakhani
