Sheffield Optometrist celebrates move with family fun day

Sheffield Optometrist Alex Gage is celebrating his move to spacious new premises with a family fun day.

Alex and his wife, fellow optometrist Sarah Gage, started practicing at Sandygate Road, Crosspool on Monday 5th September following an extensive programme of refurbishment and will hold a launch party this Saturday (10th September). There will be fun for all the family with magic and balloon modelling from Professor Shell between 11am and 1pm and refreshments and home-made cake for all the family throughout the day.

Sarah is delighted with the move and said; “Crosspool is a thriving, family focused community and we wanted to host a little party to get to know people and to show people how important healthy vision is to all the family.”

Alex continued; “The move to Crosspool practice was prompted by a desire for more space so that we could increase the number of frames that we stock and gives us the capacity to offer sports vision testing and behavioural optometry services.”

Alex  has over 20 years experience, a diploma in sports vision and is an accredited member of the British Association of Behavioural Optometrists. Behavioural Optometry is a discipline whereby the optometrist works with an individual to help them gain a better understanding of what the eyes are seeing. This often helps people, especially children, to understand the information that the eyes give them. Through the careful use of lenses and vision training activities, Behavioural Optometrists facilitate the development of a more efficient and complete visual process. This enhanced visual process leads to improved performance in many areas of life including general movement and co-ordination skills, academic development, in the workplace and in sports and other recreational activities.
