Due to the Government restrictions, in relation to social distancing that came in to effect on Tuesday 24th March, I have been forced to close the practice with immediate effect. All routine appointments have now been cancelled.

Please Note that I will continue to provide EMERGENCY cover for those that may need it, in line with the NI PEARS Scheme (details available on this website).

All calls to the practice will now be transferred to my mobile telephone, and I will endeavour to answer and respond promptly to any queries that you may have during normal business hours of 9am-5.30pm.

Tel: 02890 613485

As you may be aware, the current restrictions will remain in place until 8th May. For those who require emergency replacement or repair of their spectacles, or emergency supplies of contact lenses, again please contact me on 02890 613485, and I will do my very best to provide a suitable solution from the stock of prescriptive contact and spectacle lenses that I currently hold in practice. As you may be aware we have our own spectacle glazing lab in practice. We also hold an extensive range of Daily Disposable Contact Lenses. Please be aware that my suppliers are subject to the same restrictions as I am, and we are currently struggling to obtain supplies of certain products.

Those patients on the Contact Lens Home Delivery Scheme should continue to receive their supplies as normal.

Again, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any queries or concerns you may have.

I look forward to continuing to fulfil your eye care and eye wear needs, now and in the future.

Best wishes, and keep safe.

Stephen McKay
