Welcome to Joseph Hayes Opticians for friendly, professional, affordable eyecare

Important Covid Update


Saturday 9th January


Yes, we are open, and will be open throughout the current lockdown period 


Current guidelines are that we should be prioritising essential eyecare over more routine 

appointments, but it is perfectly possible to book a routine check up if you wish


We are doing our utmost to ensure your safety whilst in the practice - we all wear PPE and practice 

social distancing, we have extensive perspex screening, we do remote frame and lens 

measurements, surfaces are regularly disinfected and all staff currently have 2 covid tests every 

week



If you (or anyone in your household) currently have any Covid 19 symptoms, please DO NOT come in to the practice

People who are currently 'Shielding' or self-isolating should not attend the practice


If you have any doubts or queries, please do not hesitate to give us a ring



Our hours will be as normal, ie 9.00am - 5.15pm Mon-Sat, but to make a visit as safe as possible 

the practice will be running with minimal staff, so bear with us if there is a delay in appointment 

availability, answering 'phone calls and replying to emails


If you have an urgent problem / concern with your sight or the health of your eyes, please call the 

Minor Eye Conditions Service (MECS) on 01743 297027, 01772 717167, Mon-Fri 9.00am - 5.00pm, or 

email chec.stoptom@nhs.net 


Thankyou for your help and understanding. This has been, and still is, a very difficult time for 

everyone, but we hope you manage to stay healthy, and very much look forward to seeing you 

soon


Best wishes from Joe, Alison and all the Staff




About Us


After several years of working for a major high street optical chain, we felt that it was time to escape from the "conveyor-belt" attitude towards optical care and establish a workplace based on our experience and values


Joe and Alison started the practice with Adam K and Sue back in 1992. These original staff members are still with us today and have now been joined by Adam G, Sam and Sarah. Between us we have some 150 years of optical experience !


Our Aims


Our aim is, and has always been, to provide top quality service and professional, knowledgeable, unbiased advice on all aspects of eyecare and eyewear


We only deal with reputable manufacturers and suppliers, so we have total confidence in the products we sell and the services we offer


To ensure continuity of service, we do not employ locum optometrists, so all eye examinations and contact lens checkups are performed by either Joe or Alison
