Simon Lowe, a key figure at our Crowthorne practice over many years, has opted to take early retirement. We wish him well as he enters this new phase of his life.
Notice to all our patients
In order to try to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we have decided that we are unable to offer any face to face consultations at this time. This includes routine eye examinations, contact lens aftercare appointments and fitting spectacles.
We will remain open in order to answer any telephone calls and emails and we can offer a telephone consultation with an optometrist if you need it.
You are welcome to collect your contact lenses and spectacles, so long as we maintain a safe distance. Therefore, we will not be able to offer a spectacle fitting service at this time.
If it’s more convenient for you, we can arrange to have your goods delivered to you; you’ll just need to cover the cost of posting.
We appreciate all your support during this difficult time.
The health and safety of our patients and employees is our priority. Let’s all stay safe.
We will update you of any changes accordingly.
Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.
3D OCT scanning available at our Crowthorne practice
We can now offer 3D OCT scanning at Crowthorne. This gives us an image similar to an ultrasound and can help our optometrists see beneath the surface of the retina. It can help us pick up even the early stages of Macular Degeneration and Glaucoma and is particularly important if there is any family history of these diseases.
Please ask for an OCT test when booking your eye examination.
It is with great sadness that we announce the retirement of Mrs Bagshaw from Norman Prince Opticians. She had been an optometrist with us for over 40 years and during that time made a huge impact in every aspect of her work.
The same commitment and dedication shown by Mrs Bagshaw continues with our remaining optometrists: Mr S Abery, Mrs E Entwistle, Mrs Mola-Moheddien and Mrs K Jowhal, all of whom have been with us for a number of years and would be more than happy to take on your eye care.
Miss H Bhatt is the newest addition to our optometry team. She has been working at our Ashford practice for over a year and is as committed in her role as Mrs Bagshaw was.
We all wish Mrs Bagshaw a very happy retirement!
