We hope you had an enjoyable festive period despite the ongoing difficulties in meeting family and friends. As an essential service, we will be operating as usual and seeing patients for pre-booked appointments during the latest lockdown. We stayed open throughout most of 2020 as an essential healthcare service after significant investment in new (and safe) eye examination equipment such as the WAM 800 – albeit with reduced capacity and new ways of working. We anticipate this situation continuing for the next few months. With the roll out of two Covid vaccines there is every chance that 2021 will be a better year than 2020. Hopefully, 2021 will be the year when: * ‘Corona’ is just a Mexican beer * ‘Tiers’ are only on wedding cakes * ‘Bubbles’ are the fizz in our sparkling wines! We are now (almost) back to our normal opening hours following the changes over the Christmas period. However, we do expect to be closed on Wednesdays throughout January. You can always find any changes to our planned opening hours by googling us. For those of our patients who prefer to do as much as possible online we continue to enhance our virtual eyecare services.
