The Right Care for Your Eyes

Eye Care and Support

What you need to know

What’s the first thing you do every day, even before cleaning your teeth? You open your eyes, so you can make sense of the world.

It’s easy to take our sight for granted but looking after our eyes means we can continue to get the most from this most miraculous of senses. At Patrick and Menzies, we don’t take your eye care lightly, and we will always go the extra mile to make sure your vision is the best it can be.

What do we do differently? …

The Right Solution for You

We are independent opticians, which means we can source suppliers and products that you often won’t find elsewhere – and because our service is bespoke to you, the levels of care we provide won’t be beaten. We can ensure you’re getting exactly the right thing for your situation. Whether it’s something simple but stylish, contact lenses to change your look or a designer frame and a complex prescription.

Take a look at just a few examples of what we can offer (but remember, there’s lots more in store!)

Our usual great service –
just a little different.

We’re open and looking after your eyes, glasses, and contact lenses as normal, just with a few alterations to how we go about things. As per our professional guidelines, we are prioritising those people who are having trouble or are concerned about their eyes, vision, or visual correction. We can see routine appointments but are asking those with no issues just to book a little further in advance to allow us to leave room for those people who are experiencing difficulties.

To keep us all safe, and to comply with guidelines, all staff have appropriate PPE and training and will observe social distancing wherever possible. We will perform as much of your consultation as we can at an appropriate distance, or remotely before you arrive at the practice.

Our New Procedures

  • Our practices are operating by appointment only. Appointments are needed for all visits, whether that’s for an eye examination, to collect your spectacles or for any other face to face query.
  • You can request your appointment by phone, online or by email
  • Everyone visiting the practices will be asked to wear a mask or face covering and sanitise their hands on arrival.
  • Please attend your appointment on your own unless you have to have someone with you for mobility or other health reasons.
  • We ask that children only attend with one parent.
  • We request card payments only, or BACS before you collect your spectacles.

Finally, and most importantly, please do not attend if you feel unwell and have developed any of the symptoms of Covid-19, or if you have been in contact with anyone who has.

Thank you for your help in helping us, look after you.
