Changing rooms: take a look at our snazzy new practice

Back in Easter we closed for one week for a practice makeover.

The brief was to refresh our look and create more space on the shop floor to allow for the increase in foot-flow.

MiSight Contact Lenses are now available at Perspective Optometrists

Prevelance of myopia has significantly increased in children in recent years. Early onset myopia is more likely to progress and has been linked to increased risk of retinal detachment and glaucoma in later years. Slowing down the rate at which myopia progresses in early childhood gives the best visual and health outcome.

These Daily Disposable contact lenses use “ActivControl” technology to help slow down the growth of the eyeball which in turn slows down the myopia.

Multi-center trials in Singapore, Hong Kong, Canada, Portugal and the UK have shown up to 60% reduction in myopia increase in children over a 3 year period.

Single use daily disposables makes these lenses comfortable and safe to wear for children from a young age.

MiSight Contact lenses are now available at Perspective Optometrists

Happy New Year We hope 2017 has gotten off to a good start for you. Often at the beginning of a new year we reflect and make plans. Hopefully looking after your eyes is on the list for 2017.

Most people would say their eyesight is the sense they would least like to loose. Yet there are 2 million people in the UK living with sight loss which could have been reversible.

In 2005 and 2008 I was fortunate enough to volunteer for Vision Aid Overseas in India and Uganda. In the rural placeswe visited, I witnessed how simple visual problems like short sightedness, need for reading glasses and cataracts had such a profound effect on education and livelihood.

Get Your Eyes Tested and Help Vision Aid Overseas

So if you have your eyes tested in February we will donate all proceeds to Vision Aid Overseas. Our goal is to raise £1500.

Founded in 1985, Vision Aid Overseas has been helping some of the poorest people in the world to see properly for over 30 years. Whether you are a teacher in Ghana, a seamstress in Zambia, or a school pupil in Ethiopia, poor eye sight can have a devastating impact on your life and livelihood.

To enable people living in poverty to access affordable glasses and eye care.

Look After Your Vision & Get A £45 Gift Certificate As A Thank You From Us

When you get your eyes examined in February, not only will you be looking after your vision and helping raise money for Vision Aid Overseas, we’ll also give you a £45 gift certificate that you can use towards new eyewear (which technically means your eye exam will be free if you get new glasses). So you will get a little extra as a thank you for looking after the health of your eyes and helping someone else because of the funds we raise.
