Your eyes are extremely delicate. They require high quality care and attention at least every 18 months. This helps to detect any signs of eye conditions that can leave your vision feeling gritty and uncomfortable.

Our friendly team will greet you ahead of your appointment and ask you some vital questions regarding your lifestyle and any changes in vision that you may have noticed. The optometrist will then spend at least half an hour testing your eyes.

The specific tests will include refraction, intraocular pressure, visual field tests, opthalmoscopy, colour vision assessment and digital retinal photography. These examinations are completed using the very latest optical technology and helps us to detect the onset of eye and health conditions such as glaucoma and diabetes.

By taking advantage of our retinal imaging camera, we can take detailed images of the back of your eye. This enables us to more accurately monitor changes in your vision and highlight any areas that need close attention. The scan is non-invasive, easy and quick to complete. We’ll keep the image of your retina on record so that we can successfully monitor your health and the condition of your eyes.

Once your examination is complete, your optometrist will talk to you about your eyes and discuss your eyewear requirements. You will then join our friendly team again and choose your ideal eyewear from a huge range of designer and non-designer frames.

Please remember to bring your existing prescription for your current eyewear along with you and any details of medication that you use.
