Corona Virus – Tempory Closure

We are making preparations for when we are permitted to re-open for routine eye examinations. There is no indication yet from optometrist’s governing bodies as to when this might be, so for now we are still open just for urgent and emergency care.

We will be doing extended test times to allow time for safe practice, infection control and changing of our personal protective care, and will be operating behind a locked door. Everything including collections and repairs will have to be done by appointment so we can be sure there is no more than one patient in the reception area at any one time.

We will make every effort to make your visit as safe as possible.

Keep a look out on our website and on our Facebook page for further updates.

In the mean time, please phone if you have any queries. We will do what we can to help.

More than just sight tests, we provide eye care

At Robert Hughes Eyecare believe in providing tailor made, comprehensive examinations, unbiased advice and exemplary service and aftercare, all in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Pop in to their friendly practice and find out more!

Eyecare for all the Family

Unlike some high street opticians, at Robert Hughes Eyecare we think there should be no minimum age for a sight test. The sooner problems are detected the easier they are to treat. Therefore we recommend a child’s first sight test is between the ages of 6 months and three years old, however we will test a child of any age if there are concerns about their sight.

We will give you the time and the advice you deserve

Why follow the flock? At Robert Hughes Eyecare our experienced optical assistants will help you choose a frame which suits your face and your character, guiding you to the best looking glasses for you.

“For many years now, I have been taking my Mum to see Robert and have always found him to, not only be highly professional, but also showing a personal understanding and respect for the individual needs of Mum. Robert was particularly supportive in assuring Mum that she could have certain tests carried out by him, rather than going to an unfamiliar health centre with all the stress and uncertainties it held for her. I am very happy to recommend Robert and all his team to anyone looking for a local optician with first class service.” Mr A.M. May 2017
