Here at Alan Tyler we all look forward to getting the practice dressed up for Halloween. But ahead of this year’s spooktacular we would like to share a word of warning when thinking about putting together your halloween costume…
We’re sure that you’ve been working hard to perfect your 2019 Halloween look, and whilst you might be thinking that the addition of some spooky contact lenses could be the icing on the cake for this year’s scary outfit, it is worth considering that the popularity of these Halloween contact lenses is becoming an increasing cause of concern amongst eye surgeons.
Many have found that the wearers of these coloured lenses are at increased risk of metal poisoning and a host of other eye conditions, including swelling, infection and even vision loss. It is important that you are aware that whilst these lenses are readily available, in some cases they can be extremely dangerous. Unlike regular prescription lenses, these novelty lenses are not regulated by UK Law.
If you really want to wear special contact lenses this year, please be sure to buy them from a reputable company and seek advice before wearing them.
My son Harry was devastated when the school suggested he should have his eyes tested. After asking around we were recommended to Alan Tyler's. From start to finish the staff and opticians put him at ease and made the experience fun. He loves his glasses and now sees what he has been missing!!! A big thank you to all of your staff.
I knew there was something wrong with my vision. Thanks to the new OCT machine, the trained Alan Tyler optician was able to highlight the problem in an instant.
We would like to thank ALL the staff at Alan Tyler Opticians for the superb and attentive service that we received on our recent visit to your shop. We have as usual been treated to faultless advice and support. With the friendly manner and professionalism you extend to all your customers we would not hesitate to recommend your service to others.
A big thank you to all the staff at Alan Tylers. After years of wearing varifocals and having to put up with distorted and limited vision I finally the vision I have always wanted with the new Varilux lenses that was advised by the dispenser. They are perfect.
A professional but enjoyable experience. The test was thorough, and the options of frames etc to suit are good. Any problems after are quickly and efficiently resolved. The whole process was a pleasure.
