We are taking all advised precautions with regard to infection control and have a good supply of PPE.

Here are the policies we are adopting to make you as safe as possible when attending the practice.

If you usually collect your spectacles or contact lenses but would prefer that they are delivered, we can happily do that. 

As our patients have been known to say

“I wouldn’t trust my eyes to anyone else”

We both share a clear view of our practice aims. We want to give you the best care for your eyes. We do this by investing in ourselves- we keep our skills and knowledge current. We also invest in our practice environment – we have state-of-the-art equipment and a pleasant, comfortable space in which to work.

We invest in our staff- we encourage feedback and an exchange of information and ideas.

We can now offer a comprehensive range of eyecare services. Even so there could be an item you need which is not listed or you may require information not contained on the site, if so – get ,in touch and we’ll be delighted to help.

We are proud sponsors of the Chew Valley 10K and 1K. Looking forward to 2021. 

Rock and Roll !

At Brislington we are delighted to offer frames with a ROCK MUSIC styling. Vinyl Factory Vintage Retro style in beautiful acetates: quirky round eyes, glamorous upswept, plus strident and cool. The cases feature a gold disc and the delivery box resembles a  Sixties amplifier ! The lens cloth is of course in the shape of a vinyl record. They are French in origin and construction is as solid as a rock ! Sunnies too ! 

At B&H we love Retro - Vintage styles and if we haven't got it we'll attempt to track it down for you. We also like Eco styles that place less burden on resources.

NEWS June 2019. Michael Brock has retired from the partnership but is retained as a consultant on a part-time basis, mainly based at Brislington but also for occasional sessions at Chew Magna. He extends grateful thanks to all patients for their loyal support of the three generations of the Brock family involved in the practices and to all the staff who have been employed during that time. Ownership of the business has passed to the remaining partners Mark Houlford and Nicola Deacon-Low
