Eyes front for a fab 2019

A (slightly belated) Happy New Year to all of you from Wright Eyewear.

Now that the festive choccies and biccies are done and dusted, we’re feeling supercharged for a spectacular 2019.

So pop on your kettle and get cosy with our news, reviews and highly-anticipated eyewear releases.

Christmas cards and outings

Thanks to all our clients for our lovely Christmas cards. We’re always thrilled to receive them, and Mrs Dwyer’s even wound its way to us via mid-Wales — perhaps a new Satnav was on that postie’s Christmas list!

We also managed to briefly whisk our team away from optometry for seasonal drinks and entertainment at Brands Hatch — unfortunately, pictures of us attempting the floss have been confiscated by the local dance police.

Expanding eyewear collection

Far from resting on our laurels, we’re pleased to announce a few new arrivals to our ever-expanding eyewear collection.

Style-wise, the first thing we’re looking forward to in 2019 is soon taking delivery of a new range of niche sunglasses from Aspinal of London.

This luxe brand (which supplies some of the Duchess of Cambridge’s favourite handbags) is releasing seven new glam styles inspired by fierce fashion icons from the 1960s to the present.

But that’s not all — we’ve also got fresh on-trend pieces from Cocoa Mint and Lindberg, and have been chatting to Tokai about new, super-thin, high-index aspheric lenses which will be instore imminently.

Watch this space throughout the year to hear about the latest eyewear releases first.

Morrisons car parking

Returning to slightly more mundane matters, a sea change is afoot at the Morrisons car park in Sidcup.

Despite the original planning agreement stating that parking on the site should always be free, the supermarket has announced plans to charge shoppers £2 if they park for between 30 minutes and two hours.

The Council and local business groups are in discussions with Morrisons, so all may not be lost — but please check signs for the latest rules if you’re using their facility or alternatively, park in the lower council carpark.

Recycling specs

Because we’re trying to be green and serene in 2019, we’re asking all our customers to drop any old specs to us instore for recycling.

We’ll donate them to Vision Aid Overseas — an excellent charity which provides eye care outreach services to remote communities worldwide, including gifting children with the prescription glasses crucial for enhancing their education and life prospects.

Keep in touch

As 2019 progresses, we’d love to keep in touch with you about any aspect of eyewear and eye care — or absolutely anything else we touch on in our blog.

So please contact us anytime with feedback, queries or quibbles.

By the time you read our next blog, we’re hoping that Spring has sprung!
