5 REASONS WHY YOUR EYES SHOULD BE A PRIORITY POST LOCKDOWN

With lots of us focusing on getting back to the hairdressers or pubs now that they are reopening, Nimesh Maisuria, store partner at Specsavers in Hammersmith, has highlighted why our eyes should be our priority appointment.

 

Since reopening for all appointments, the staff at the Hammersmith store have seen and increase in customers with the five issues below.

 

  1. Those struggling with dry eyes since lockdown have now been coming into store to check their eye health. Specsavers staff are specially trained to deal with this issue and can offer eye drops to avoid a trip to the GP
  2. Many of those who have been using their computers more since working from home have noticed a change in their prescription. It is crucial to get this checked as straining eyes can lead to further issues, so get your sight test appointment as soon as you can
  3. Those who broke their glasses during lockdown have been relieved to come and have them fixed, particularly children. We also have some great new ranges coming in if you want to update your look with your new post lockdown hair do
  4. With the incoming rules making it mandatory to wear masks, those who wear glasses may be thinking about getting contact lenses to avoid specs steaming up. We are happy to help you explore this option
  5. Diabetes and Glaucoma screening appointments may have been delayed, so we are able to support those who have any queries around this

 

Specsavers stores in England and Wales are now open for routine testing, having operated an urgent and essential care only service throughout the COVID-19 restrictions. The full breadth of optical and audiology services, including routine eye and hearing tests, contact lens consultations, frame repairs and the sale of glasses, contact lenses, hearing aids and other products, are now available.

 

Customers unable to attend a store can still access care and support through Specsavers RemoteCare video and telephone consultation service, and Specsavers Ask The Expert Facebook group, while glasses and contact lenses can be bought online with a current prescription. Customers can even try on prospective new specs at home, with Specsavers’ virtual try-on tool.
