“Crusoe” is the name!

We have just heard back from Guide Dogs for The Blind. They are delighted to announce that “Crusoe” will be the name of our dog- the first eligible puppy to be called that name.

Thank you to Russ Moulding for the original thinking and to everyone who has supported this campaign.

Crusoe hasn’t actually been born yet, but watch this space for an update on his progress.

HELP US NAME OUR PUPPY!!!!!

We have raised over £2500 to buy a guide dog puppy and put it through its first weeks of training.

Thank you to everyone who has supported this wonderful campaign. We now need one more favour, name our puppy. Please add your suggestions to our Facebook page. We need a name for a boy, a name for a girl and one that could be either.

Could you please share and like our page and then add your 3 chosen names……

We look forward to hearing from you and thanks once again from all of us at Robinsons.

New Star Signing in The Transfer Window!

New Optometrist Elaine

This month We are delighted to welcome Specialist Independent Prescribing Optometrist Elaine McKechnie to our Star Studded Team! Elaine, along with our own Gary McMullan,  is one of the very few Independent Prescribing Optometrists in the region, a much sought after qualification. She has worked extensively in The RVI as well as Independent Practice and is passionate about the eyecare of her patients. Her recent experience of working in The Eye Emergency Department will prove invaluable to The Practice.

What’s more, we can vouch for her being just a lovely person, and is destined to be a huge hit with patients and staff alike.  She joins our established Team of optometrists, Nigel, Judith, John, Gary and Jim who are all very much looking forward to working with her.

 

 

Guide Dogs Week at Robinson Optometrists, 7 – 15 October

Robinson Optometrists are proud to support National Guide Dog Week, a special week for our chosen charity! We are £2,200 on the way to our target of £2,500 – the amount needed to buy and train a guide dog puppy through it’s early weeks.

We’re having a CAKE DAY on Thursday 12th October. Call in for a coffee and home made cake – all donations to The Guide Dog Appeal. There’s also a special appearance by Guide Dog Breeze, along with her owner Irene, who will be happy to answer any questions about guide dogs (from 3pm).

Half Price Designer Sunglasses

The sun does seem a long way from our thoughts today. However the Summer Holidays will soon be upon us, and our offer on half price designer sunglasses is proving a real hit, especially our fabulous new ranges from Cocoa Mint and Jensen.

Simply buy any frame (complete with lenses), from any of our premium ranges to be eligible. You can also join our easy to set up, interest free payment plan.

We look forward to seeing you…and the sun!!!

Opticians Awards 2017!

Exciting News! We have again been shortlisted as National Finalists in The Optician Awards in two categories:

  • The Independent Practice of the Year
  • The Fashion Practice of the Year

We previously held Independent Practice of the Year in 2010 and 2012 so are really pleased to again be recognised. Fashion Practice is normally the domain of London based outlets, so pleased to be putting Whitley Bay on the Map! The Winners are to be announced at a Gala Dinner at the NEC Hilton. Win or lose, we aim to enjoy the evening!

Thanks to you all, our loyal customers, without whom this would not be possible.

Thank you Munich!

#munichopti is a huge opportunity for Nigel and Judith to personally select fashion ranges from around the world. We aim to make sure that we offer frames that are a little bit different to enable you to stand out from the crowd! We look forward to sharing our ranges with you! Both so impressed by Munich!

It’s Back!

The return of our most popular #offer! Buy any Hoya ID varifocal ( the lenses with the super wide distrotion free zone), and get a spare pair from a choice of other products! The choice includes free sunglass varifocals, indoor varifocals for sustained computer use, or simply single vision. This is a great time to order your new varifocals.

We look forward to seeing you.
