Covid-19 Updates for Templeman Opticians
For the safety of our patients and staff, we have taken the difficult decision, after 30+ years of continuous community service across our business, to temporarily close our practice doors for all routine appointments.
An emergency service is still available. Please contact us to arrange an appointment, if:
• your vision has suddenly changed or become blurry
• you have a painful or red eye
• you have been advised to attend this practice by NHS 111 or another healthcare professional for urgent eye care
• you have broken or lost your glasses and need a replacement pair to function
• you have a problem with your contact lenses
We can then assess how best to meet your needs.
Eye Emergency Advice Line
As the NHS clinical burden continues to grow, we will be providing telephone triage and advice to anyone we are able to assist. This includes our patient-family, their friends and anyone who reaches out for assistance. This service will be provided free of charge and is open to anyone.
Please keep safe. We look forward to seeing you on the other side when life returns back to normal.
Below are the benefits you will receive from us as a small Essex based family run business;
We specialise in home visit eye care focused on improving the eye care of people over 60!

If you have regular eye tests, wear the right lenses and look after your eyes, there’s a better chance your sight will remain clear.
Have regular eye tests
An eye test is not just good for checking whether your glasses are up-to-date. It’s also a vital check on the health of your eyes.
An eye test can pick up eye diseases, such as glaucoma and cataracts, as well as general health problems, including diabetes and high blood pressure.
The good news is that if you’re 60 or over, you can have a free NHS eye (sight) test as often as you need one.
to find out more about eye tests.
Wear the right lenses
An eye test will establish whether you need a different prescription for your glasses or contact lenses.
It’s important to wear the correct prescription lenses. This will improve your quality of life and reduce the risk of accidents such as falls.
You may be entitled to help with the cost of NHS glasses or contact lenses, so ask your optician about this.
