Wigram and Ware Opticians, which has branches in Lynn and Dersingham, arrange free deliveries

Independent opticians in Lynn and Dersingham are extending their services to support vulnerable people in the community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Team members at Wigram and Ware Opticians, which has branches in Lynn and Dersingham, are arranging special free deliveries to clients.

They will be delivering spectacles to those in need, including older members of the community and high-risk patients, who are unable to collect in store.

Although the practice remains open as usual, team members will travel free to the door of patients who cannot visit the practice, even delivering contact lenses and solution to those in self isolation.

Wigram and Ware are also maintaining their commitment to repairing existing spectacles, as any patient who sends in their glasses can expect them to be delivered back to their home as soon as possible.

For patients who require an emergency pair of glasses but are unable to come into practice, they will be able to visit Wigram and Ware's website and select a replacement pair that will also be delivered to their door.

Patients can also request a closed-door clinic with their optometrist, meaning the practice will be closed to all but staff members, to avoid potential interaction with other patients.

Optometrist and practice co-owner Sarah Baldock said: “The wellbeing of our patients is our highest priority, so these measures are about ensuring the health of those in local area is maintained during this period of uncertainty.

“We hope by extending our services beyond our normal capacity it will allow our patients to follow government guidelines of staying at home, whilst retaining peace of mind about their eye health.

“Our eyes are one of our most valued assets, so it’s vitally important that we stay open and guarantee that our patients are receiving the same level of care attention, even in these testing times.

“All of our thoughts go out to all of those affected by COVID-19 and we hope we can continue to support our community for as long as possible.”
