A fresh perspective


In this Case Study, we learn how one optician has introduced a sustainable cleaning system to help combat COVID-19.


Brian D Suttie is a Chesham-based optical practice that has been established for over 20 years. The company believes in the continuity of care, not only in its service and product offering but in maintaining a retail environment that is safe and clean for their patients, customers and staff.


A practice that strives for sustainability, Brian D Suttie needed to respond to the workplace guidelines for COVID-19 to ensure they could reopen, implementing a new cleaning regime that would help make the practice ‘COVID safe’.


Chetan Gudka, owner and Optometrist at Brian D Suttie, explained: “As part of an Optometrist forum, one of the areas we’ve been discussing with regard to reopening safely is the disinfecting and sanitising of our practices. From the consulting room equipment which includes chin rests, head supports, and our own instruments, to the frames in the dispensing area that our patients will try on.


“We wanted to find a multipurpose solution that can be used to safely disinfect work stations, hands, equipment and frames safely, as part of increased hygiene protocols. The question of using certain products on our equipment which comes into contact with skin has concerned me and we were keen to avoid alcohol, bleach or hydrogen

peroxide sanitisers. It needed to be an effective antiviral cleaning system that would be suitable for both clinical and retail environments.”


After researching chemical-free cleaning solutions online, Chetan discovered Toucan Eco. The multipurpose disinfectant cleaner is made from just salt and water, and uses electrochemical activation to produce hypochlorous acid – an effective solution that’s already being used by the dental industry for disinfection.


The solution kills up to 99.999% of microorganisms, including those harder-to-kill than the coronavirus. What’s more, with a gentle pH of around 8, Toucan Eco is both effective and safe to use on areas and products that come into contact with human skin.


One of the benefits that appealed to the practice was Toucan Eco’s ability to create their own disinfectant solution on-site, refilling reusable spray bottles and, in turn, eliminating plastic waste from the single-use bottles that chemicals are often supplied in.


Chetan continued: “We all need to take responsibility for the environment; as a practice we’ve been looking at various ways to improve our sustainability over the last few years.
