Eye Examinations

We pride ourselves on our comprehensive eye examination whether it is a private or NHS examination: our experience & dedication helping to achieve the best possible vision whilst continually monitoring the health of the eyes.

At all times we try to understand your needs & offer appropriate advice to you as an individual. We will carry out digital retinal photography and basic dry eye assessment during the eye examination if required. Occasionally, a more in-depth dry eye assessment may be required and you will be advised of this accordingly.

Childrens Eye Exam Visual problems can often be overlooked as an explanation for poor performance at school. We understand that a first visit to the opticians can be a slightly daunting prospect and aim to assess children according to their age whilst still making it an enjoyable experience! All children under 16 are entitled to an NHS eye exam.

Intuitive Colorimetry

Although this is not currently recognised under the NHS it is often recommended as a way of relieving visual stress which can cause headaches. Intuitive Colorimetry can also reduce problems with reading encountered with dyslexia. This can affect about 25% of the population in varying degrees.

We are able to carry out coloured overlay assessments - a simple test which only last between 20 and 30mins. This is used to determine which coloured filter may be of help. We can then perform an additional examination, if required, to prescribe specially tinted spectacle lenses.

Financial help is now available to students in higher education who are eligible for The Disabled Student's Allowance (DSA). Please go to www.direct.gov.uk/studentfinance or contact your local DSA assessment centre at www.dsa-qag.org.uk.

Contact Lenses

Most people are suitable to wear contact lenses whether they wish to wear them the majority of the time or just for sports or on social occasions.

They offer a convenient alternative to glasses and come in a variety of options to give you maximum comfort - from daily to monthly. Our staff will be able to advise you the best option to suit you and your lifestyle.

Digital Retinal Photography.

The health of your eyes is one of the most important things to us. With this technique our optometrists take a detailed picture of your retina to detect any problems. We will perform Digital Retinal Photography as required or at the request of another health care professional.

Dry Eye Assessment and management.

Dry eyes are an increasingly more common problem for patients. We are able to asses tear films and advise on appropriate treatment.

Vitamin Supplements

There is now increased evidence about the benefits of taking vitamin supplements for a number of ocular conditions including Macular Degeneration and Dry Eye conditions.
