We will remain open over lockdown.


We have been advised by our professional bodies that we can continue to see patients over the new lockdown during November, for routine eye care as well as emergencies, and for supply of spectacles and contact lenses. 

We have very strict hygiene and cleaning procedures in place to ensure your visit is safe for everyone - see below for details.

For appointments please contact the practice or go to our contact page and send us a message so that we can book you in. We have suspended our online booking system at present, although you can contact us directly from our Facebook pages to arrange your appointment - see below.

Get in touch with us: The quickest way to contact us is via a direct message through our Facebook pages.

Making your visit safe:

We are operating a locked door & appointment only policy to ensure your safety by limiting the number of people in our practices at any one time.

We may telephone you before your appointment to discuss your eyes and eyesight to reduce the amount of time you need to spend in the practice.

Please don't attend the practice if you have a cough, sore throat or fever - we will be unable to see you if you present with any of those symptoms. 

We will check your temperature on arrival using a non-contact thermometer. 

You will be asked to sanitise your hands on arrival.

All fabric seating has been replaced with wipe down chairs. After your visit all equipment, frames and and seating are sanitised.​

We have perspex screens in the reception and dispensing areas.

All branches have a 'Steroriser' that sanitises frames using UVC light before they are replaced on the display racks.

All staff have new uniforms that are kept freshly laundered.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Rob Stokeld & Matt Booker, Directors, and all the team at Henderson Opticians group.

Yarm branch closed on Mondays: Our Yarm branch will be closed on Mondays for the forseeable future. We have done this to reduce the need for staff to transfer between branches, increasing  your and their safety.
