Both branches of Globe Opticians are now open for regular eye examinations, contact lens checks and fittings. It has been three months that we have been operating on a emergency basis only. We appreciate the loyalty and patience our customers have shown during these hard times. Our staff have been working tirelessly to make testing as safe as possible. We have arranged both shop areas in a way to keep the public as safe as possible. All our staff will be wearing masks and where necessary face shields. We will be providing alcohol hand gel. All spectacles will be cleaned in compliance with the guidelines.
With the Governments new traffic light system, there are a few rules that must be followed :
- All adults having an eye examination must come into the room wearing a mask. Children under 12 do not have to wear a mask but wherever possible please wear one. You may take your mask off while choosing spectacles but please adhere to the social distancing rules.
- Please attend the practices only 2 people at a time wherever possible to eliminate crowding.
- People who are AT RISK AND SHIELDING please call in advance as we are running a special clinic for these patients.
- If you need to try spectacles please ask a member of staff first, since we have a very strict hygiene policy.
- If you have symptoms i.e fever, persistent cough, loss of smell and taste, please do not attended until you have self – isolated for 2 weeks.
Please abide by the rules set. These have been made to keep everyone safe.
We have a spectacle laboratory meaning we can make glasses within 1 hour. Any emergencies on spectacles we are happy to help and provide a very fast spectacle service.
Please note our latest opening hours on the right or below on mobile. These are subject to change depending on the circumstances.
The phone lines will be open 6 days a week.
VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT COME IN TO THE SHOP WITH ANY COUGH OR COLD SYMPTOMS. THIS IS PUTTING EVERYONE ELSES SAFETY AT RISK AND YOU WILL BE REFUSED TO BE SEEN.
I wish everyone good-luck through these testing times. Please think of others and be considerate to your fellow countryman. Well can beat this all together as one.
