Your hearing is as important as your sight.

Your hearing has never been more important.  With appointments and meetings being conducted online or on the phone and mask wearing compulsory when speaking in person, not hearing well has become a real issue.

The masks obscure sound and our ability to read lips, therefore making it much more difficult to understand what the other person is saying.  But there is no need to suffer in silence.  Get in touch to book your FREE hearing assessment, where we will be able to ensure the health of your ear as well as test your hearing.

With today’s technology, hearing aids are small and comfortable and almost invisible.

Patients who have recently updated their device have remarked that they hear the way they remember hearing before they had a hearing loss.

That’s because the processing power of today’s hearing aids is far beyond what older hearing aids could manage.  Everything has a natural crispness to it – and loud sounds are completely comfortable.  It can analyse the sound types and balance the background noise – which makes speech clearer and easier for you to be a part of the conversation.  And to simplify matters, they connect seamlessly to the phone or TV.   Smart hearing all the way.

See clearly – stay safe!

Wearing a face mask is not the most comfortable for anyone, but if you wear glasses too and can’t see out of them most of the time, you know exactly what we are talking about when we tell you we have the solution to fogged up lenses!


Shamir rose to the challenge and produced a lens with anti-fog properties.


With face masks here to stay for the interim, make sure your vision is as sharp as ever.


Who benefits from Shamir Glacier Anti-Fog?

Shamir Glacier Anti-Fog is suitable for anyone who regularly experiences rear lens surface fogging, including:


• Anyone who wears masks with glasses (sunglasses and eyewear)
• Medical teams that are required to wear a mask for long hours
• Those engaged in sports, both indoors and outdoors
• Work that involves strenuous activity
• Professions where safety glasses are required


For additional lens protection, we recommend combining Shamir Glacier Anti-Fog with one of Shamir’s advanced Glacier Plus coatings or Power Mirrors on the front surface of the lens.

Regular eye tests are important

February half term is fast approaching and it is the perfect time to have your child’s eye test booked.

We recommend regular check-ups for all children.  Ideally they should have their eyes tested once a year or more often if there seems to be a problem.

Children and adolescents develop rapidly and their eye sight can change equally fast.  Poor vision can affect their learning at school and their safety while out and about.

We offer NHS sight tests to all children, which are completely FREE of charge.   Not only children are entitled to an NHS test.  Here are some other criteria:

You’re entitled to a free NHS sight test if you:

  • are under 16
  • are 16, 17 or 18 and in full-time education
  • are 60 or over
  • are registered as partially sighted or blind
  • have been diagnosed with diabetes or glaucoma
  • are 40 or over and your mother, father, sibling or child has been diagnosed with glaucoma
  • have been advised by an eye doctor (ophthalmologist) that you’re at risk of glaucoma

In some cases, the NHS will also give an optical voucher towards the cost of glasses or contact lenses.
