Guidance for optical settings

On 10 May 2020, the prime minister announced the conditional plan to ease restrictions. All optical guidance remains unchanged.

The temporary cessation of routine optical services addresses the safety of patients and of optical teams as well as supporting the public health measures required to slow community transmission of COVID-19.  This advice has not changed. The most recent guidance letter for optical staff is available on NHS England website.
