Eye Examination

Exceptional eye care and state of the art optical technology. A simple eye examination every 24 months will help to detect and combat the onset of conditions like glaucoma, diabetes, cataracts and macular degeneration. Without regular care, your eyesight is susceptible to common eye problems that can cause infection and vision loss.

When you visit us in practice, you’ll be greeted by our friendly team. They’ll be on hand to help you settle into our unique house practice and make sure that you feel at home.

In order for us to best understand your lifestyle requirements, a member of our team will ask you a series of questions based on your lifestyle and vision. It’s important that you give us as much information about your medical history and lifestyle as possible. This will help our optometrists to carry out the appropriate eye examinations and also help our dispensing team to find your ideal eyewear.

You’ll then spend up to 30 minutes with our optometrists. This gives them time to give you an unhurried and in-depth analysis of your vision and health. Our optometrists will want to discuss any problems you are having with your eyes, no matter how insignificant you feel the problem is.

Retinal imaging also gives our optometrists the opportunity to learn more about your eyes and enables us to closely monitor your vision as you age. Using a fundus camera, the optometrist will be able to take a picture of the inside of your eye and highlight any areas that have deteriorated or require correction.

After the examination, you’ll be able to choose from our wide range of high fashion spectacles and contact lenses. Our specialist team are highly knowledgeable and will be ready to assist you in finding your new eyewear. No matter what your eyewear requirements, our state of the art laboratory means that any adjustments or manufacture is completed on-site.

As well as caring for your vision, we endeavour to care for your eyewear too. Our unrivalled aftercare service not only enables you to book eye appointments as regularly as you like, it also means that your eyewear will be repaired, adjusted and cleaned.
