LATEST UPDATE 15th June 2020: 

From Monday 15th June Optometry practices across England can move to an amber phase guidance meaning we can offer appointments to patients requiring more immediate eye care. We are going to prioritise patients who were cancelled at the start of the lock down, and those patients that were due to have an eye examination during this time that are having eye problems.  If you are due a routine eye examination and are having no problems, we would kindly ask you to be patient with us while we deal with more immediate eye care needs, but rest assured we will be in contact as soon as we are able to offer a more routine service.

If you have any concerns over your vision or feel your prescription has changed, please telephone the practice on 01743233486. We are also open to all queries between the hours of 9.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday. Saturday 9.00am to 1.00pm.

We look forward to seeing you!


Contact lens orders

Contact lens orders will still be processed in the usual way. If you anticipate requiring additional contact lenses in the coming months, please get in touch as we are keen to ensure you do not have any break in your supply of lenses.

General enquiries

You are also very welcome to contact us by email with any general enquiries regarding your eye care. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We would love to hear from you.


We will update our website regularly should this current situation change.

Jenny and I would like to thank you all for your ongoing support and loyalty to the practice, and we would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family all the very best.

Gareth and Jenny Hardcastle
