An optometrist at an independent practice in Hassocks has warned there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ solution to eye care and urged patients to see a specialist offering personalised treatment options.

Speaking in light of Independents Day – a weekend championing the benefits of supporting independently owned businesses – Vicki Macken of Hassocks Eyecare Centre said the bespoke approach adopted by independent opticians means you will receive the care and expertise required to keep your eyes in optimal condition.

Director and Optometrist, Vicki Macken, added: “When it comes to your eyes, there’s no ‘one size fits all’ solution to care and maintenance. With an independent optician, you can expect a longer and in-depth examination and evaluation of your eyes, resulting in tailored solutions for complex eye and vision issues.

“We pride ourselves on a stronger optometrist-patient relationship, promoting more effective and bespoke treatment plans and a deeper understanding of your specific needs, resulting in a higher level of patient satisfaction.

“That clinical excellence, coupled with a commitment to serving the community in which we all live and are personally invested in, sets us apart.”

Francesca Andersson and Lorna Stewart, optometrists at Hassocks Eyecare Centre, have recently both completed their Professional Certificate in Glaucoma, adding to the wealth of expertise that has been fostered over the years at the practice.
