CHINEHAM Centre Opticians is being re-launched this Friday.

The business owned by Chris Cox, in Chineham Shopping Centre, has become a founding member of the Oculus Contact Lens Centre network – the UK’s only optician franchise dedicated to contact lenses. And on Friday the practice will be officially re-opened at 10am by the Mayor of Basingstoke and Deane Councillor Dan Putty.

As part of the re-launch, free no obligation contact lens assessments are being offered this Friday and Saturday.

Chris said: “With the support and training we’re getting as part of the Oculus network, we now have the skills and expertise to fit the latest lenses on the market so our patients will have the choice to wear spectacles or contact lenses, or both. “Our aim is simple – to be known as the experts in contact lenses in Basingstoke.”
