Changes due to Covid

Revolution Eyecare Opticians is committed to operating as safely as possible during the Covid pandemic. As a result, we have made changes to the way we operate.

We are operating for essential eye care only, as routine eye care is not allowed at this time. This may include where patients have broken or lost their glasses or contact lenses and need a replacement pair to function, or where they feel their vision has changed and are now struggling. Where possible we will try to offer the service remotely. Contact lenses are currently available for direct to patient post.

We are not currently able to offer urgent or emergency eye care, as unlike many other CCG’s this service was never commissioned by Bolton CCG, however it is in the process of being commissioned and we hope to able to offer this service soon. Please call your GP, 111 or Royal Bolton Hospital on 01204 390390, if you have any urgent or emergency eye issues.

Access to the practice is now by pre-booked appointment only, including for collections and repairs (we may be able to deliver to your home). On entry please use the available hand sanitiser and adhere to social distancing whilst inside the practice.

Please do not attend or attempt to enter the practice if you have any symptoms or suspicions you may have Covid.

Operating hours will vary according to booked appointments. The phone line will remain active even if the practice shutters are closed, so please call. If the shutters are up the practice door will remain locked. Please do not try to attend the practice without first calling to discuss your requirements. The number of people allowed in the practice at any given time will be limited.

For appointments and deliveries please knock or phone on arrival at the practice to gain entry.

Examinations will be conducted using PPE and with efforts to minimise proximity and contact. A thorough cleaning and disinfecting regime has been implemented. Changes have been made to the practice layout to aid with cleaning and infection control.

Our aim is to keep everyone as safe as possible whilst trying to offer the high level of service many have come to expect from us over the years. Please bear with us during these challenging times.
