Covid - 19 Update

Updated 05/01/2021

Your eye health and ability to see is clearly very important and although we should be more cautious going forward, we should not neglect this.

As part of the NHS we're pleased and proud to be here for you during the present lockdown. We are open as usual for eye examinations and emergencies so please call us to arrange an appointment, opening hours are as usual.

At John Fell Opticians the most important thing is patient safety and comfort and this is why we have introduced the following measures to keep people safe while at the practice.


We will be booking appointments so that the waiting area is not overwhelmed. We will be doing this by leaving suitable gaps between appointments therefore limiting the numbers of patients within the practice while maintaining a suitable distance from one another in accordance with government guidelines.

Between all appointments the staff will disinfect and wipe down all areas in the reception and dispensing areas.

The optometrists will be wearing protective equipment and using different techniques to look at the health of your eyes. Therefore, not getting to close and safeguarding the patient at all times.

If you have any further questions about the above measures or anything else please do not hesitate to contact us.
