Coronavirus COVID-19 and Eye Care

At A&J Opticians, we remain committed to providing the very best patient care through this current COVID-19 outbreak.
In line with Government guidelines, we are currently operating an ESSENTIAL and URGENT service only. We are temporarily CLOSED for all routine eye examinations and contact lens aftercare appointments and will be in touch with our patients to recall them when it is deemed safe to do so.
We will still be monitoring our emails and manning our telephones so please contact us if you are worried about your eyes, in particular if:

Your vision has SUDDENLY become distorted, blurred or has changed in any way that you are finding distressing or worrying.

You have a painful and/or red eye.

You have been advised to contact us by NHS 111 or another healthcare professional for urgent eye care.

You have broken or lost your glasses and need a repair or replacement in order to function.

You have a problem with your contact lenses.

We can then assess how best to meet your needs and may be able to answer your queries by phone or video link. We are operating with reduced staffing levels so you may need to leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
If you have spectacles or contact lenses on order or wish to order more contact lenses or REPLACEMENT spectacles, we will arrange for these to be delivered or sent to you by post.
If you have an eye emergency, please contact us first rather than your GP or A&E.
We urge all our patients to adhere to the latest guidelines and follow the advice given to STAY AT HOME.

PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE PRACTICE.

Only contact us by email
enquiries@aandjopticians.co.uk
or phone 01805 628271

We hope that you stay well and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.
