May 2021: Peter's Vision

April 28 2021

WELL, here we are, a full year later and finally we can taste freedom! Outdoor, socially distanced freedom maybe, but it's a good step to getting our lives back on track. It’s even better that the sun is out and if we can remember where they are, it’s time to bring out our shorts and T-shirts, and hopefully don a pair of sunglasses too!

 When it comes to your eyes, our vision is that each of you receives world class eye care, which we firmly believe you deserve.  However it has become increasingly clear that our vision of reassuringly thorough eye care is not compatible with the NHS funded (free) sight test. With this in mind, we evolved during lockdown into a practice offering Advanced Eye Care to every patient.

We’ve re-launched our Vision Plan.  Membership is via a low cost monthly Direct Debit, which gives you access to the thorough eye care you want, when you need it.  You’ll also receive a glasses discount as well as accidental damage cover for your new glasses.  Advanced Eye Care is available for both adults and children too!  Full details, including our ‘pay on the day’ option are on our website.

I’d like to personally thank each of you for your trust and support throughout this difficult period. Making this change now, allows us to continue providing you and your family with reassuringly thorough eye care for many years to come.

 Don’t forget, whether it’s for reassuringly thorough eye care, sunglasses, glasses or contact lenses, we’re still here when you need us six days per week.  Just get in touch and we’ll be happy to see how we can help you.  We continue to offer COVID safe ways to choose your new glasses too!

To help us keep you all safe, we’re still asking you all to telephone first to book a time to come in.  Please call our Henleaze practice on 0117 962 2474 or our Fishponds practice on 0117 965 4434.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
