Eye Examinations

Each examination, whether private or NHS, takes between thirty and forty five minutes and is conducted in its entirety by your Optometrist – we believe this is important as it allows greater continuity and accuracy.

Using a combination of traditional methods and the very latest equipment, we aim to give you the best possible vision for all your requirements and ensure the health of your eyes.

We offer private and NHS Eye Examinations, each tailored to the individual patient.

Our optometrists each have only a small number of appointments per day, ensuring that every patient is given plenty of time and that all assessments can be done by the optometrist, not by unqualified staff.

The Eye Examination can include a wide variety of tests, including:

  • An assessment of visual acuity
  • Binocular vision measurement
  • Eye health checks by direct and indirect ophthalmoscopy
  • Objective and subjective refractions
  • Visual field examination
  • Eye pressure measurement
  • Pupil dilation with drops
  • Colour vision testing
  • Stereopsis and tests for macular function.

All of our eye examinations are carried out by a fully qualified optometrist
