How to find us:

On-street parking is available but limited. The nearest off-street Car Park is at the bottom of Wyle Cop (5 mins walk) or by the Abbey, over the bridge in Abbey Foregate (8 - 10 mins walk). The train station (at Castle Street) is about 10 - 15 mins across town on foot

We are open again !


Optometry practices in England have moved from Red to Amber Phase from 15th June. We are delighted to announce that we are now  open again, albeit with slightly limited times for the moment. Our new hours of business, for the time being, will be:



 Tuesday to Saturday, 9.00am - 5.15pm



Due to ongoing Covid restrictions, disinfection and infection control, we will have somewhat limited capacity at first but will build back up as the situation becomes more settled. We have limited staff at present, so please bear with us if there are delays when calling 


We have done our utmost to make the practice as safe as possible for both patients and staff. To comply with social distancing, the number of patients in the practice will be limited to 4. This will increase as the distancing regulations change. We have extensive plastic screening within the practice, all equipment is sanitised after each use, and frames are sanitised after trying on. We use a computer frame and lens measurement system for accuracy and to minimise contact. We are providing a hand sanitiser point by the door, and we request that all patients should use this. Face coverings are encouraged, and will be mandatory for people attending for eye examinations or contact lens checkups. Due to these limitations eye examinations and dispensing of spectacles will be by appointment only. Minor repairs, adjustments, frame refitting etc can be done on a walk-in basis, but please be prepared to queue/wait at busy periods


Should you have, or think you have any Covid symptoms, please DO NOT come in to the practice. 

For out of hours URGENT eyecare or concerns, please use the MECS (Minor Eye Conditions) service, which is available on 0330 100 4730


Thankyou for your help and understanding, and your patience during the time we were closed. This has been a very difficult time for everyone, but we hope you manage to stay healthy, and very much look forward to welcoming you back


Best wishes from Joe, Alison and all the Staff
