Message from Specsavers’ CEO John Perkins

I’d like to let all our customers know that Specsavers will continue to remain open for all eye and hearing needs during the current lockdown. We're able to do this because, under current government guidance, people are allowed to leave home to attend medical appointments, including eye and hearing tests, which are considered essential healthcare services. And if customers can’t leave home unaccompanied for an eye test, they can request a home visit from us instead.
