EYE EXAMINATION

“Looking after the health of your eyes, not just checking to see if you need glasses”

Private Sight Test

During a sight test we look at much more than just whether you need glasses or not. Having your eyes tested is a useful health check as we can detect many conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.  We also screen all patients for signs of eye conditions including glaucoma, cataracts and age-related macular degeneration.  Early detection of these and many other conditions gives you the best chance of successful treatment, which is why we recommend that all people have regular sight tests even if they don’t need glasses.


NHS Sight Test

Some people are entitled to a free sight test and can even get help towards the cost of glasses.  If you think you qualify for a free test then feel free to ask one of our receptionists or discuss it with the Optometrist at your appointment.


Children’s Sight Test

We use different equipment for testing children’s eyes. Emphasis is placed on making the test engaging and fun.

We make sure that mum or dad understand the results of the test, and take time to explain where, when and why any glasses should be worn.

Enhanced Eye Exam

An Optical Coherence Tomography or OCT scan helps us to see what is going on beneath the surface by scanning through the layers of the eye and creating a 3D image. More info...
