Vision & Health Care
Regular eye examinations are important for all ages. Exams are usually every two years although for youngsters and certain eye conditions more frequent examinations may be advised. Eye exams can help to identify conditions such as glaucoma and diabetes at an early stage allowing them to be more effectively treated.
In children, it is essential to diagnose sight problems early to prevent learning and development problems. If you already wear glasses or contact lenses please remember to bring them with you, the optometrist may ask you to wear them during a test. Please also bring any details of medication that you may currently be taking or have recently taken.
Our experienced qualified optometrists take a comprehensive medical history, and details of any symptoms as some eye conditions are related to health, lifestyle, and hereditary factors.
Each eye examination is performed to understand individual requirements, assessing your prescription carefully to ensure best possible vision. All exam rooms are equipped with state of the art advanced diagnostic technology for both monitoring and diagnosis.
Advanced diagnostics - Retinal screening
Advanced diagnostic technology is invaluable to screen for eye conditions that can affect your vision and your health. State of the art fundus photography and Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) provides detailed information about the back of the eye which is invaluable for monitoring and earlier detection of eye conditions which can effect vision.
Retinal screening is provided at a supplementary charge to NHS patients.
