Revised statement on the re-opening of optical practices during the COVID-19 emergency (24 June)



This statement considers the opening of optical practices and the provision of eye care services as lockdown is eased. Whilst patients have had access to urgent/emergency and essential eye care throughout the crisis, there is growing
demand for optical services to re-open to meet the backlog of need. It is important that the public has access to the full range of eye care services, as soon as and while ever it is safe to do so.
