Maskell + Josephson began life as a contact lens practice in central Manchester. In 1983 Ross Maskell opened a new practice in Altrincham that concentrated on all aspects of eye health and vision correction. We have been in our home on Regent Road ever since.
Anthony joined the practice at the start of 2013, having qualified 5 years previously. In May 2017, Ross Maskell announced his retirement and Anthony took over the practice. From the 21st September 2019, the practice was rebranded as ‘Maskell + Josephson’, keeping the Maskell name that the local community have got to know and trust whilst inserting Anthony’s name as the future of the practice. Whilst certain elements have been modernised and updated the ultimate objective remains the same – to offer world-class eye care and provide a range of options to suit each individual’s needs.
By providing longer consultations than your average practice and having access to a larger variety of products than your average practice, this allows Maskell + Josephson to treat every individual as an individual. Whilst many people share a common interest (if you’re reading this it’s likely to be the love of golf) no two people’s eyes are the same. No two people’s lifestyles are the same. No two people’s vision correction should be treated the same.
When it comes to golf, good vision is essential to see not only the longer distances but also the closer up ones. There may be clinical or genetic reasons why one person can see better than another but Maskell + Josephson are passionate to make sure each person can see to the best of their potential.
First and foremost, the key to having good vision is having healthy eyes. There are lifestyle decisions that feature in this. We all know that smoking is damaging for one’s health. Not many people realise just how damaging it can be for their eyes. A healthy lifestyle, good diet and supporting exercise regime maintains a healthy body and eyes (as well as working wonders for the mind). However sometimes you can follow all the rules and things still don’t go to plan. Maskell + Josephson are here to make sure that anything that is treatable (be it vision correction or pathologies such as cataract, glaucoma or macular degeneration) is detected early and treated appropriately.
The opticians offer many different types of corrective options, including; general-purpose spectacles such as single vision or varifocals and in various tints ranging from clear lenses to photochromic lenses (react-to-light), gentle comfort tints, polarised lenses and even tints that are designed to support specific sports such as golf.
Many people who require varifocals on a day-to-day basis may find that they struggle to wear these for playing golf. Quite often, when it comes to a specific hobby or pastime, you’ll find that one pair of spectacles doesn’t always suit all activities. Think about shoes – different types of shoes are worn for different purposes. Much the same should be expected from spectacles
