We have just about got back to normality after a fun-filled open day on Saturday. We’d love to say we’ve spent the week polishing off the cupcakes and Prosecco but, with over 150 of you coming, there were no goodies left for us! It was great to see the building bustling with old and new faces.
I’ve never hidden the fact that I love new technology. That’s why we’ve always got the latest piece of kit to help us get a thorough insight into the health of your eyes. We were delighted to see everyone queuing up to have a go of the Optos Daytona laser scanning ophthalmoscope. The Topcon 3D OCT scans also wowed, with all those who had a go amazed at the detailed pictures. For those who missed out, our Daytona scanner arrives later in the year, one of only a handful in the UK, so you can have a go then.
A lot of time was spent in front of the mirror, with many liking what they saw! Hardly surprising considering we had the full 2014 ranges from William Morris London and Silhouette on show. Even those who don’t like to be seen in their specs were pleasantly surprised, realising that a stylish pair could make them look bang on trend.
Many seized the opportunity to try out the very latest contact lenses and we seem to have a few converts too. Dailies Total 1 from Alcon, MyDay by Coopervision and varifocal daily disposables from Sauflon were all trialled with great success.
As most of you know, we’re a family business and so we were delighted to welcome so many families along. The kids were well entertained throughout the day with face painting and our design a frame competition. A few even had a dabble with our numerous pieces of technology.
We gave away Seiko watches, discount vouchers, cupcakes and hundreds of freebies so it was an eventful day.
Thanks again for all those who came and helped make it such a success. If you weren’t able to make it but would like to come in to chat about your eyes please make an appointment on 0131 225 2235.
