Our Broughton Astley Practice is now providing all routine eye examinations, repairs
and dispensing of eyewear. Pre-arranged appointments only.

Updated: 2nd July 2020

We have had permission from our governing body to do routine sight tests from the 1st July. Therefore we will be fully open from the 2nd July.




Pre-arranged appointments only. This is so that we can adhere to the social distancing and limit footfall in the practice.



We will be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE). We also recommend all patients wear a face covering




On arrival please use the hand sanitizer provided at reception.



Consultant rooms and dispensing areas will be disinfected between every patient, on practice opening times and at the end of the day.



If you are feeling unwell on the day of your appointment, please cancel and reschedule your appointment.



Where possible we will ask you to pay in advance by paying over the phone, contactless payment or reading your card details to us.
