We hope this update finds you all safe and well.
Firstly, we are happy to announce we are now open for essential and urgent eye care appointments, this includes:
• Lost or Broken Spectacles or Contact Lenses
• Eye Conditions Causing Pain or Loss of Vision
• Any Other Concerns About Your Eyes or Vision
We have sent our risk assessment to NHS Lanarkshire and have added additional procedures which are not mandatory to ensure our patient safety such as contactless temperature checks, UVC sterilisation of frames and remote video consultations with patients. We hope this provides some reassurance at this time.
We are looking forward to welcoming our patients back!
(Please note no reminders for eye examinations or contact lens aftercare are being sent as this constitutes a routine appointment which NHS Scotland suggests may be part of Phase 3 (mid-July) or Phase 4)
Eye Casualty – Lanarkshire
Since we closed our doors on 31/03/20 we have been busy working 6 days a week as an Emergency Eye Treatment Centre for the Lanarkshire area receiving referrals from GPs, NHS 24, Hairmyres Hospital and fellow opticians.
This treatment centre will now close on 28/06/20 but we will still be running an Eye Casualty service for all our own patients.
