Open for business
Allegro Optical is remaining open for all eyecare and hearing needs during the current lockdown and will continue to provide all its current services including ophthalmic and emergency eye care, pre-screening, dispensing, and hearing care.
Research by leading industry bodies indicated that a third of the people in the UK noticed a deterioration in their eyesight during the first lockdown. For this reason, we are encouraging customers to keep their scheduled appointments, staying up to date with their eye care.
While most retailers have closed under the new restrictions, opticians can remain open. We understand the concern customers have as we have moved back into a second lockdown. As a team, we would like to everyone that it is safe to go ahead and book an appointment or come in as scheduled.
