Welcome to Joseph Hayes Opticians for friendly, professional, affordable eyecare

We are open again !


Optometry practices in England have moved from Red to Amber Phase from 15th June. We are delighted to announce that we are now  open again, albeit with slightly limited times for the moment. Our new hours of business, for the time being, will be:



 Tuesday to Saturday, 10.00am - 4.00pm




Due to ongoing Covid restrictions, disinfection and infection control, we will have somewhat limited capacity at first but will build back up as the situation becomes more settled. We have limited staff at present, so please bear with us if there are delays when calling 


We have done our utmost to make the practice as safe as possible for both patients and staff. To comply with social distancing, the number of patients in the practice will be limited to 4. This will increase as the distancing regulations change. We have extensive plastic screening within the practice, all equipment is sanitised after each use, and frames are sanitised after trying on. We use a computer frame and lens measurement system for accuracy and to minimise contact. We are providing a hand sanitiser point by the door, and we request that all patients should use this. Face coverings are encouraged, and will be mandatory for people attending for eye examinations or contact lens checkups. Due to these limitations eye examinations and dispensing of spectacles will be by appointment only. Minor repairs, adjustments, frame refitting etc can be done on a walk-in basis, but please be prepared to queue/wait at busy periods


Should you have, or think you have any Covid symptoms, please DO NOT come in to the practice. 

For out of hours URGENT eyecare or concerns, please use the MECS (Minor Eye Conditions) service, which is available on 0330 100 4730


Thankyou for your help and understanding, and your patience during the time we were closed. This has been a very difficult time for everyone, but we hope you manage to stay healthy, and very much look forward to welcoming you back


Best wishes from Joe, Alison and all the Staff


About Us


After several years of working for a major high street optical chain, we felt that it was time to escape from the "conveyor-belt" attitude towards optical care and establish a workplace based on our experience and values


Joe and Alison started the practice with Adam K and Sue back in 1992. These original staff members are still with us today and have now been joined by Adam G, Sam and Sarah. Between us we have some 150 years of optical experience !


Our Aims


Our aim is, and has always been, to provide top quality service and professional, knowledgeable, unbiased advice on all aspects of eyecare and eyewear


We only deal with reputable manufacturers and suppliers, so we have total confidence in the products we sell and the services we offer


To ensure continuity of service, we do not employ locum optometrists, so all eye examinations and contact lens checkups are performed by either Joe or Alison
