Sudbury Opticians, Drage and Tozer attend National British Contact Lens Clinical Conference in Liverpool!
Dawn Jordan and Helen Drage are back in practice this week after attending the British Contact Lens clinical conference.
Helen said ‘ it was an exciting weekend especially learning about the future of smart contact lenses ( for drug delivery and glucose measuring) and hearing the results of 3 year trial of myopic management lenses. Amazing to think that results seem to show we can now influence myopia progression in some children!’
Free hearing tests now available at Drage and Tozer Opticians in association with bloom hearing specialists.
Next week, 15-21st May, is Deaf Awareness Week and we at Drage and Tozer Opticians will celebrate this by officially launching our association with Hearing Aid Audiologist Jason Searle of bloom hearing specialists. You are invited into the practice to meet Jason on the morning of Friday 19th May where he’ll answer your questions and provide information and support surrounding hearing loss.
Jason will be holding regular clinics at Drage and Tozer Opticians and Helen Drage said, “We’re very excited to offer hearing tests alongside our eye care.” explaining, “So many of our patients are suffering from hearing loss and we are looking forward to offering patients old and new an even more complete service through our partnership with bloomhearing specialists here at Drage and Tozer, Siam Place.”

More new technology at Drage and Tozer Opticians!
How do you know what the world will look like with your new spectacles?
Drage and Tozer are very excited to have a new Virtual Reality Headset to help patients experience their new spectacle lenses before ordering them!
Dispensing Optician Andrea Hunt said ‘ It has always been difficult to explain to patients the effects or benefits of different lenses and coatings, now, using the Nautilus headset they can experience it for themselves.
She continued, ‘Patients can see with a 360 view the impact of a certain lens on their day to day living. Increasingly we recommend a lens for a certain hobby or VDU use and with Nautius we can easily show the patient how the lens works.
The unit is lightweight and held by the patient. There are a number of real world simulations presented that allows them to see what near and distance vision is like through chosen lens designs’
Call in to practice and let us show you the Nautilus headset! or telephone 01787 310090 for an appointment with one of our dispensing opticians
We will be open Christmas Eve 8 am – 12.00 pm, then we are closed for Christmas.

We have been Sudbury’s local Optician for 20 years and last week we celebrated our First Year anniversary in our new premises at Siam Place.
Helen Drage said “We are thrilled with how Drage and Tozer has grown over the past year in the new premises. We can now offer so much more to our patients, such as the use of the new contact Lens Centre. We can also stock a larger range of spectacle frames, giving patients more choice when choosing their glasses.”
Patients were encouraged to pop in for Coffee and Cake and to take part in picking cards from a lucky dip.
Prizes included, Drage and Tozer Gift Vouchers, Sunglasses including Maui Jim and Ray Ban, and a voucher for a complete pair of Spectacles and Lenses provided by Essilor!
Congratulations to Sally Morland-Pearce who has won a new pair of spectacles in the draw! She is pictured with Rachel Bawden who said, “We had lots of winners last week! Thank you so much to all our patients old and new for your support over the past year. We really wouldn’t be where we are now without all of you.”
Drage and Tozer are very excited to be joining in with the “Beat the Street” game coming to Sudbury and Great Cornard in September.
The competition runs from September 21st to the 2nd November so there’s plenty of time to get registered and be a part of the fun.
Beat the Street has already been hugely successful in other parts of the country and is a great way to get everyone out and about either walking, running or cycling between the different Beat Boxes positioned around the local area.
Tapping in at the Beat Boxes with your Beat the Street card earns you points which accumulate over the whole time that the competition runs. Prizes are awarded throughout as well as overall prizes for topping the leaderboards.
The staff of Drage and Tozer, along with their family and friends will be busy tapping in at the boxes and we’d love to see our patients out there too!
Registration cards, maps and information leaflets are available from Drage and Tozer and further details can be found on-line at www.beatthestreet.me/sgc. This initiative is run by Intelligent Health in partnership with Suffolk County Council.
We hope to see lots of people joining in to make it as popular as it’s been in other areas….why not join our Drage and Tozer team and let’s see how far around the world we can go!
A Drage and Tozer gift voucher could be the perfect birthday present!
Any denomination and it can be used it towards sunglasses, prescription spectacles or maybe buy someone a contact lens trial for their birthday!
Just decide how much, pop in, pick one up and we will do the rest.
If you can’t get in to see us we can do everything over the phone with a credit card and post the voucher directly to you. Call us on 01787 310090 and speak to any of our friendly staff.
