The team in Walthamstow have been supporting the local community by fixing their glasses as well as giving key workers sight tests and getting them glasses so that they can continue the important work they are doing.
Helping the elderly
One elderly customer was really pleased with the store’s service after they made up a new pair of glasses for their friend who had lost her reading glasses and wasn’t able to get out to to buy a new pair.
The staff have also been fielding a great number of worried calls from customers and have been able to address and alleviate these concerns through continued access to professional optical services.
A message from the store director
Faiz Parkar, ophthalmic director of the Walthamstow store, says: ‘We’re grateful to have had the capacity to remain open during this difficult period, and we’re proud of the help we’ve been able to provide to those in isolation. It can be extremely difficult during isolation if you cannot undertake your normal activities due to poor vision.
‘We want the local community to know that, while we are closed for routine appointments at the present time, we are still very much here to support people with their essential eye care needs, and to make sure they can see and hear healthily whilst staying at home – so please give us a call if you need us.’
