A huge thanks to our friends at Zetland FM, right here in Redcar, for helping us spread the word about the benefits of regular eye tests. We have walk-in appointments available so if you could do with a check-in come and pay us a visit - just look for the orange and black store!  


Caring for your contact lenses

- Thursday, October 13, 2016

There are two man types of contact lenses; rigid gas permeable or soft – instructions for both will vary accordingly – so it is vital you follow your optometrist’s advice. Being careless with your contact lenses can lead to serious infections in your eyes – in some cases, misuse of contact lenses has led to parasites, bacterial and fungal infections, herpes and temporary or permanent blindness. 


Why are eye tests important?

- Wednesday, September 28, 2016

Regular eye tests are important, as your eyes generally don’t hurt when they have an underlying problem – and if you’ve had a problem such as blurred vision or floaters for a long time, it’s likely you’ll have gotten used to it and are unaware of the long-term health impact this can have on your life. 


Back To School Eye Tests

- Tuesday, September 06, 2016

Thankfully, there are a handful of children who will tell you; “Dad, I can’t see the board at school,” or they will make subtle changes in their behaviour we can pick up on – like sitting closer to the television, frowning or blinking a lot, or holding a book closer to their face. And whether your children shows any signs or symptoms of vision problems or not, it is still a good idea to take them to regular checks at their opticians to spot any potential problems before they get worse.
