Southern Optical Ltd.


We are excited to announce that we will be open 9 AM to 5 PM, Monday to Friday, effective May 5th. Please note that we are closed from noon till 1 PM for lunch.


To meet our commitment to customer and staff safety, we have implemented the following changes:


  • There will be no more than eight people in the store at once.
  • Eye tests are scheduled further apart and done with social distance protocol, and masks and gloves, if necessary (depending on the necessary tests).
  • All hi-touch and public areas are sterilized continuously.
  • Fitting and adjustments are made from 6 feet apart.
  • Glasses are sterilized after any contact.
  • Hands and tools are sanitized before and after use.
  • Contact lens customer training is being held off until stage 2 reopening.

Rest assured that we are following all the guidelines given to us by our college, which comes directly from Dr. Hinshaw!


If you have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, have travelled internationally in the last two weeks, or have been in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19, we ask that you stay home and not visit our store at this time.


Thank you for your patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing you and appreciate your support to help maintain a safe environment in our store!
