COVID-19 Update (16/06/20)

From 16th June 2020 we are able to welcome you to the practice for spectacle browsing and purchases, by appointment. We have been busy behind the scenes getting the practice prepared to keep both you and our staff safe during these ‘socially distant’ times. Please click here to see how we plan to keep everyone safe.

We are following the Guidelines set out by the General Optical Council, College of Optometrists and the Association of Optometrists, who stipulate that optical practices may now see any patients who require an appointment due to adverse symptoms. Therefore we can potentially provide care if:

  • You have broken or lost your glasses.
  • You are suffering from eye strain or headaches related to visual tasks.
  • You have noticed a change in your vision/prescription.
  • You are having problems with your contact lenses.
  • You are struggling with uncomfortable and/or red eyes.
  • You have a known eye condition that requires monitoring.
  • You are taking medication that puts you at risk of ocular side effects.
  • You have concerns or anxiety about your vision or eyes.

See your Optician with new eyes!

Don’t you just hate feeling like you’re being given a sales patter when you go to the opticians? Do you really need that extra test, those new glasses or special lens coatings? Isn’t it annoying when you’re not given enough time during your consultation to ask questions and feeling like you’ve just been passed along the conveyor belt? Well, we hate all that too.

Going to the optician can be a stressful experience. As an independent, private practice, Taylor-West & Co Optometrists aim to provide the antithesis to the usual tiresome optician experience. Sophie Taylor-West has worked in practices where the emphasis is on selling glasses and not on the quality of care. It’s no fun for you or the optometrist. If you’d like an enjoyable experience in a stylish, relaxed and caring optical practice, with the most thorough eye examination you’ve probably ever had, we’d love to meet you and show you why our service is second to none.
