As you would expect we already operate at a very high level of cleanliness and hygiene in our boutique practice which includes regular hand washing and cleaning equipment between clients. But, given the threat we are all facing from COVID-19, we have brought in some extra measures to try and combat the spread of the virus.

  • Following government guidance, we’re asking anyone with flu-like symptoms not to visit us. ​We will be very happy to re-arrange your appointment to a later date, please call us on 028 9023 6629 if you wish to change it. For the latest NHS advice please click here
  • We’ve made hand washing facilities available to our staff and all our clients in our ​practice
  • When our staff are helping clients choose frames, each frame is disinfected before putting back on display and between clients.
  • Frames will also be cleaned at regular intervals.
  • As many of you already know, we provide a very high level of personal care and attention to each of our clients and as such we never have more than one or two clients in the practice at any one time. This ensures that a suitable distance is always maintained between individuals and is in-line with the latest recommendations from WHO and the NHS.
  • We also take great care to ensure we meet a high standard of hygiene with our hearing products, and also within our test rooms

This is a challenging time and we’re committed to doing everything we can to make sure we can continue to deliver a safe and reassuring service and experience for all clients in our practice. We are quite different from most optician practices in N.Ireland in that we have always put a great deal of focus and investment into the diagnostic and clinical side of eye care. Under the care of an industry-leading optometrist and using the very latest in cutting-edge diagnostic technology we want you to know that we are here for any eye care concerns that you or your loved ones may experience over these coming weeks and months.

We wish you all good health and look forward to seeing you soon.
