This is a bit of a low effort post, but it’s blisteringly hot and I am sitting between two fans and I am not moving!

Unfortunately, lenses and some frames are starting to cost a few pounds more than before, so you may notice prices are a little more than a couple of years ago.

I have mentioned this before but I need to say it again, every week a couple of people will cancel their eye test at short notice. Could you please make sure you’re booking appointment that you’ll be able to keep. I know things get in the way, but if you want us to still be here in a couple of years for your next test we need to tighten up things.

On a similar note, we know we give a great sight test and I am very happy to say that if we don’t have glasses you like then of course you should look elsewhere for frames that do fit your look or budget. But, if you’re just coming to us for a test and then going to buy glasses from Specsavers or somewhere online, you are hurting us. We make no money from tests and most of our money from glasses. Please consider that before booking in if you really have no intention of buying glasses here.

Lastly, I have a new toy in the practice that will help if you want to keep using your old frames. In a lot of cases I will be able to switch old for new lenses without sending the frame away, so you won’t be without your specs for more than a few minutes!

Finally, here’s a teaser of some new frames that have trickled in.
