Closure of our Kidsgrove Practice due to
Mr Thompson's semi-retirement
At the end of 2018, after 35+ years of testing 6 days a week, Mr Thompson decided to decrease his testing days. Sadly this means that we had to make the hard decision to close our Kidsgrove practice.
We would like to thank all the patients and staff who have worked in our kidsgrove practice for the past 32 years.
We have transfered all our patient records to our larger Congleton practice where eye examinations are avaliable 6 days a week.
We would love to keep seeing as many of our loyal Kidsgrove patients as possible, and will send out reminders when patients are due inviting them to Congleton.

Good Luck Vicky & Welcome Patricia!
Vicky has decided to return to university to study, so will sadly no longer be part of the L. Thompson Team at Congleton. Vicky has been working with us for the past 7 years and will be missed.
Her shoes have been filled by Patricia who has recently moved to the area and has many years of dispensing experience.
We wish Vicky the best of luck for the future!

You may have noticed lots of adverts on the TV about Crizal or Transition lenses and a promotional deal with local independent opticians.
We are part of this promotion and it's running for the next 6 months giving a second pair of lenses for free or at 50% off depending on what lenses you have. This includes single vision, so get a free set of reading lenses when you get a pair of distance glasses, or varifocals, interview lenses or sunglasses!
Give us a ring or pop in and we can tell you more about it.
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.
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!
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.
