Opticians with a vision of the future
David Gould Opticians have two optical practices in the Rossendale Valley, located on Bank Street Rawtenstall, and Deardengate Haslingden.
Owners, David & Diane Gould are both qualified contact lens opticians, and, working with experienced, qualified independent optometrists using some of the latest examination equipment, they are able to provide a comprehensive eye care service.
David and the trained support staff are on hand to offer first-rate advice on frames and lenses to ensure you have the information to make the correct choice of eyewear for your needs. We use Essilor's Visioffice Dispensing System in both practices, which allows 3-D digital measurement of spectacle lenses and a great way to see yourself clearly when trying on new frames.
The latest digital contact lens equipment is used to continue to provide what has become the largest contact lens service in the area. All types of contact lenses, including disposables, multifocals, continuous wear, hybrids, Rigid Gas Permeables and toric lenses for astigmatism, are supplied, including One Day Acuvue Moist for Astigmatism.
David Gould Opticians hold the status of Acuvue Centre of Excellence, are one of Cibavision's Premium Independent Practices, and are members of Coopervision's Visionary Club. This means that we often have access to new products before they are generally available. We also carry out clinical research studies on new contact lens products yet to hit the market.
We do not use "own brand" products as we believe this restricts choice and we want our clients to be able to choose from the full selection of products available.
Our Dry Eye Assessments were introduced in January 2012 and have proved very popular and attracted many new clients to the practice. We are able to carry out various simple tests to determine the nature of the problem and recommend appropriate treatment. Many people we have seen have been using the same treatments for many years and have never been exposed to some of the latest products and methods. Our digital slit lamp microscope allows us to show clients what we can see and helps in gaining a better understanding of what's happening. This service is currently available free of charge to patients registered with a GP in East Lancashire, but can be carried out privately also.
