Covid-19 Update: Revised Opening Schedule

From Monday 30th March, Scotts Opticians Thetford will open on the following days only from 9am to 5.30pm, for the foreseeable future:

Monday, Tuesdays, Wednesday and Friday

Our telephone number remains 01842 764 831 and we will collect answer messages on other days to call you back.


Further to guidance issued by the College of Optometrists, Scotts Opticians will not be conducting routine eye examinations for the foreseeable future. If you have an urgent eye care need, we will still be able to examine you, although we strongly advise individuals over the age of 80 to only attend if absolutely necessary.

Please note that ‘essential’ eye care needs include:

– Emergency eye problems (sudden pain/visual loss)
– Issues with spectacles (broken/lost)
– Issues with contact lenses

We want to do our very best to ensure we keep patients away from GPs and hospitals at this time, therefore please contact us in the first instance. Where possible, we may triage over the telephone.

If you have any general queries which are not of an urgent nature, do email us and we will reply as soon as possible.

Contact Lenses

For existing contact lens patients, please call/email us and we will order more lenses for you and take payment over the telephone. We can also deal with spectacle queries over the phone, but may need to establish a video call if necessary.

Thank you for your understanding at this time. We look forward to getting back to doing what we do best with full capacity.

We wish you and your loved ones safety and good health.

Your eyes matter. Trust your independent optical specialists with your eye health

Your eyesight is irreplaceable and arguably your most vital sense. So it is extremely important for you to visit an expert you can trust, not only to provide you with an insight into your eye health, but to only suggest treatments that are necessary. That is exactly what you’ll receive at Scotts Opticians, Thetford’s leading independent eye specialists.

Your visual health is our main priority and will be cared for by a team who have over 30 years combined experience. Owner and principle optometrist, Dr Parth Shah has a PhD in myopia, a qualification that reinforces a passion for learning and clinical excellence. He also uses advanced techniques and equipment – like the OCT scanner – to provide you with the highest level of eye care.

You also want to look and feel great too. We have a dedicated dispensing team who will help you to choose the perfect frames from a collection of designers like RayBan, Polo, Ted Baker, Joules and Face a Face. We also stock a huge array of non-designer quality frames to suit all budgets.

To find out more about our practice, or to book an appointment to have your eyes tested, please contact our friendly team by calling 01842 764831 or use our online booking form.
