Amy visits Smallwood School

 

In February Smallwood School invited Amy to come and give a talk about Optometry as a career to some of the children. It was part of a aspirations week which included talks by other proffessionals like a pilot and scientist. The children learnt about eye development and how to keep your eyes healthy aswell as what happens when you come for an eye examination.

October 2015- Our MP visits Kidsgrove

Local MP calls on constituents to look after their eyesight by having regular eye tests
MP for Stoke-on-Trent North, Ruth Smeeth, visited L. Thompson Optometrists in Kidsgrove on Thursday 8th October to find out why regular eye tests are so important in preventing blindness.


1.8 million people in the UK are living with sight loss and this figure is set to increase by 115% to nearly 4 million people by 2050, largely due to the ageing population. Much of this is preventable through the early detection and treatment of eye problems. Regular eye tests are a simple and practical way to maintain good eye health and look after your eyes.

Commenting on her visit, Ruth Smeeth said:
“It was great to visit L. Thompson Optometrists here in Kidsgrove, and extremely informative to see the great work that they do. Many people don’t realise they are eligible for free sight tests, and I would urge everyone to make sure they are getting their eyes tested regularly.  ”

 

The visit was arranged between Staffordshire Local Optical Committee and Ruth Smeeth MP, with the support of the Optical Confederation’s Public Affairs Team, as part of the ongoing campaign to reduce the high level of avoidable sight loss in the UK.

December 10th 2013- Opening Night

 

 

To celebrate our re-opening as L.Thompson Optometrists and The Congleton Eyecare Centre we felt the need to celebrate with our local mayor George Hayes, Lyndon Taylor the chairman of the Association of Optometrists and local business people and friends!

November 2013- Finally!

 

We are delighted to announce that phase 2 of our refurbishment,  the updating of number 5 West Street, has now been completed.

We have a much larger frame display area which has enabled us to carry an even wider range of frame styles.

Also, with the increased space we have been able to create a designated dispensing area where patients can make their final frame choice in a more private environment.
