Welcome to N & S Patients

POSTED ON October 28th  - POSTED IN News, Uncategorized

We are delighted to be able to report that we are now able to serve all those patients of Navint and Shilpa Solanki at Market Place under our Chapmans umbrella.

We will be sending out eye examination reminders in the usual way, but will welcome you to the Market Place practice where we can offer full ophthalmic support.

Navint Solanki will be examining eyes here on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays if you wish to continue to see him and we also have two very experienced ophthalmic opticians available throughout the week, as well as a fully qualified contact lens practitioner.

Our frame selection is extensive – from value to designer – and we hope that you will be pleased with the new arrangements made for your eye health.

We are very much looking forward to meeting you and providing a warm, efficient and effective service – something on which we pride ourselves.

Peter Kirby and all the staff at Chapman and Partners

 

Vision Aid Overseas

POSTED ON December 30th  - POSTED IN Uncategorized

2013 has been a very busy year for Vision Aid Overseas and we, at Chapmans, are pleased to have been able to help in our small way by providing your old spectacles to be sent to people in third world countries.  This effort has changed so many lives through VOA’s international work – Please continue to bring in your old spectacles to deposit in our basket..

In the last year VOA have:
· Helped over 48,459 people to see by providing eye examinations and spectacles.
· Launched three major, new projects in Burkina Faso, Ethiopia and Sierra Leone.
· Established five new Vision Centres.
· Provided training to over 295 eye care workers.
· Received their first major grant from the UK Government’s Department for International Development.

None of this could have been done without your continued support.  Thank you for everything you have done for Vision Aid Overseas this year.

Looking to the future, we want 2014 to be a year in which we continue to support VOA to help even more people and with your support we will make this a reality…

Cyber Bullying

POSTED ON December 17th  - POSTED IN Uncategorized

Cyber-bullying : is a buzzword these days – for a particularly cowardly and hideous form of unkindness.

It goes without saying that bullies are cowards, first and foremost, that pick on more gentle and sensitive people – people to whom they feel intimidated or less interesting – and to make themselves feel better, they belittle their prey.

It is sometimes very difficult to speak of these things to parents, teachers and friends for fear of reprisals but our ophthalmic opticians are very willing to listen and may be able to help. When having an eye test in the secure and confidential surroundings of our examination room, the optician will ask if there is anything that you would like to raise and this could be a good opportunity to ask any questions about your eyes or spectacles or to share any bullying burden. All conversations would be dealt with in the strictest confidence, as your health and eyecare will always be.

Parents; please pass this information on to your children and young people when coming for their next eye examination, as we are all keen to help stamp out this vile activity.
