SightCare’s Lockdown Heroes
Over 20 independent opticians and optometrists have been recognised as SightCare’s Lockdown Heroes for their dedication to their local community eye care during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Optical practices across the UK have submitted their lockdown experiences to the optical business support group SightCare as part of their SightCare Lockdown Heroes award initiative. The exemplary work of entrants included hand-delivering frames to the vulnerable, creating uplifting parody eye related videos, creating lectures on brain and vision therapy, taking on additional training, refitting the practice to make it more COVID-secure and feeding the homeless, to name but a few.
SightCare said “We invited independent practices across the UK to send us their lockdown experiences with our favourite stories being selected to be viewed nationally on our free online conference platform. We are exceptionally proud of how independent optical practices have worked to keep the eyesight of their community safe during the pandemic while also complying to the ever-changing regulations. They have shown not only great dedication to their small independent business, but to their local community, making them worthy Lockdown Heroes.”
The entries are available to read as part of SightCare’s free online conference and can be found on their online conference platform. To register for access the free two-day conference opn the 28th February and 1st March, click here: http://bit.ly/39cEC5y
