We have reduced capacity to enable us to sanitise and social distance so please be patient with us.

New feel, new look, new era.

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.

Thank you
