As the world is in the midst of this major pandemic, we can all do our bit to fight the Corona virus.
The reason this virus is spreading so quickly is because it stays in the system for upto 14 days before the symptoms presents.
WHAT CAN WE DO:
As the government has advised social distancing is a policy that actually works, scientist have discovers the main means of infection is by infected droplets coming in contact with other human beings and entering the system through the eye, mouth and nose.

WHAT ARE WE DOING?
We at Lais Opticians have decided to operate reduced hours and close certain days. This is to maintain a safe environment for our staff and the community.
All our stores and stock is disinfected after every patient. Given access to hand washing facilities to all our customers.
We have a dedicated phone line (07908 637705) for customer wishing to discuss glasses, contact lenses, appointment or have an ocular emergency. We also have introduced our online store for purchases.
What is the difference between Digital and conventional lenses?
The biggest difference is how they are made. Convention lenses are made using a generator which grinds the back surface of the lens which is then sanded down and polished to provide the required prescription, each step involves human interaction. This process can generate heat and cause the lens to warp which effects the prescription of the lens, and there is risk of human error.
Digital (Freeform) lenses are produced in a very similar way but each step is controlled by a computer and which reduces human error and because of this we can control more factors of the lens manufacture which enables the lens to be modified for the individuals face and frame choice.
