Taking care of your eyewear this Christmas

We’re fast approaching the festive season – and as staff at our four north Essex branches will tell you it also seems to be the time of year when more people than usual break their glasses!

So, if a nose pad goes missing while you’re unwrapping your presents, you sit on your specs when you settle down to watch King Charles give his first Christmas speech or a screw slips out while you’re on a Boxing Day walk, don’t worry. The Patrick & Menzies team can help.

Patrick & Menzies’ Dan Edwards said: “We always find people seem to break or lose their glasses more around Christmas time, so we do advise patients to consider investing in an extra pair of specs. Then, if the worst does happen, you still have a fall-back plan. So long as you have an up-to-date prescription then all you need to do is call us to book a dispensing appointment and we can help you to choose the right spare pair for you.”

Many people now choose to have multiple pairs of glasses frames as if you want to dress to impress, altering your eyewear is an easy way to switch up your look.

And if you do break your classes we are also primed and ready to carry out repairs. Just phone your local branch once we reopen and we will do our best to make them as good as new.

So, whether you need a simple spare pair, or you’re searching for new standout eyewear, we have plenty of options to choose from. You can browse a large selection of the frames available from Patrick & Menzies on our website, with options to suit all tastes and budgets.

Needless to say, if you are worried about your vision or have any concerns about your eyes, get in touch with us as soon as possible to book an appointment. Our branches are closed for the period between Christmas and new year, so it’s important to contact us as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. You can either book over the phone or book online.

Festive opening times

All of our branches will be open right up to 1pm on Christmas Eve, reopening at 9am on Tuesday 3 January for the start of the new year. 

We would like to wish all of our customers a very Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year. Our deepest thanks for your ongoing support.
