• COVID-19 Update

Hello wonderful Oculist people.

We are so pleased to be classified as an essential business so we can stay open through the lockdown.

We will continue offering all our world famous Oculist services and products but you will have to book an appointment.

The shopping centre will be locked, so we are currently organising safe passage for you all via the Westgate Arcade entrance (opposite The Bull Hotel). If you are parking in Queensgate, the only open car park is The Blue Car Park – park up and exit through the barriers. If you need any advice on how to get to us, please just give us a call.

We are operating hour-long eye examinations which ensure adequate time between clients to sanitise and social distance. We are even offering to lockdown the whole store for vulnerable people, family bubbles or people that are shielding. Let us know what you need and we will do our best to serve you.

As always, thank you so much for your continued support.

We have changed lots of things in the store to ensure you have a safe visit and to ensure we adhere to recommended Covid guidelines.

Those of you that follow our social media have spotted that The Oculist has had a spruce.

I commissioned Olive & Umber and Visual Etiquette and both companies delivered in record time. We have new colours, new work stations and the first floor has taken a huge step towards providing a new type of Oculist experience. Watch this space.

We are excited and ready to see you all and look forward to Oculizing more and more faces.
