Our advanced private eye examination is more than a simple test of the sharpness of your vision. It can detect (before you notice them) early signs of eye conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts and retinal problems. What’s more, your eyes can be an indication to your health and our optometrists may identify early onset of several common health problems, such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes. In fact, regular eye examinations should be a normal part of all your health routines because all of our eyes change over time.
We use the latest technology including an OCT scan which enables us to detect and monitor eye conditions. We recommend this to all of our patients and if you are entitled to an NHS sight test, you can simply ask to have an upgrade to this advanced eye examination.
Before we offer you advice or recommendations, we will ask you about your occupation, family history, and lifestyle. For example, how often you use computer screens, or read small print or take part in sporting activities. Our optometrists will then pass the relevant information on to our dispensing team who will help you to choose the frames and lenses best suited to you.
