Lockdown 3.0

Here at Christopher Nixon Optometrists the welfare of our staff and patients is paramount and now, more than ever your health and safety are our top priority. We are pleased to let you know we will remain open during the current lockdown starting January 7th and will be offering all essential eyecare services albeit by appointment only and with a slightly reduced capacity, continuing to consider the health and safety of all in the practice. We may ask you to postpone your routine appointment beyond the lockdown period if deemed non-essential - please call if you are unsure.

As many of you will have seen already, the practice is as safe as possible for us all  - a one way system has been implemented, limits on numbers in clinic rooms and protective screens are in place to comply with government Covid-19 certification.

We are of course using appropriate personal protective equipment and do ask that you refrain from visiting if you have any Covid-19 symptoms.


For all eyecare and spectacle queries PLEASE TELEPHONE FIRST

We are all looking forward to returning to some sort of normality and getting you back safely to the practice. We know that some of you will have been struggling through the lockdown period and thank you for your support and patience during this testing time.
