A High Street optician has begun a phased reopening for those who have suffered a change in vision over lockdown.
An independent optician in Weston has allowed patients to book eye tests for the first time since March.
Optika Opticians, on the High Street, was able to expand its services following NHS England guidance on Covid-19.
Patients who have experienced changes to their vision during lockdown are eligible for consultations with Optika’s Optometrist.
Although the optician has been supporting the community throughout lockdown, routine appointments may now take place with social distancing procedures and full PPE.

“As we are able to spend much longer with patients it means we can give you an even more personalised service.
“We ask that patients come into the practice wearing a face mask, but we are more than happy to provide you one on arrival, should you need it.”
