Update 30/5/20 Our shutters are still down but we are open for you if you have a problem with your eyes, spectacles or contact lenses  Routine eye tests are still not available but if you have vision problems, broken spectacles, or are anxious or concerned about your vision then please get in touch.

I can be contacted by mobile on 07941444725 or on e mail sylviabaileyoptom@gmail.com for advice.

Contact lens supplies are unaffected and we are arranging home delivery. This can take a little longer than usual. It may be worth contacting us to confirm that your lenses have been ordered- give me a ring or drop me a message when you put in your last pair ( of monthlies) or are down to your last few daily lenses.

Why not like our Facebook page J.A.Hicks Optometrist?  If you click on the facebook icon at the top of our website home page it will connect you. I will post on facebook anything you need to know or you can use Messenger as another way of getting in touch.
