Eye Exam

We provide friendly and comprehensive eye-care for the whole family. Clinical excellence is of utmost importance to us.

Our routine eye examination costs just £35.00 and includes the following:

  • History and symptoms: we ask you some questions about your eyes, your health, and any family eye problems, but very importantly we take time to listen to any concerns you have about your eyes and your vision .

  • Refraction: this is to accurately work out your prescription

  • Muscle balance: this is to assess how your eyes work together

  • Ophthalmoscopy: this is to look inside the eye to check that it is healthy. To do this we use a technique called ‘Slit Lamp binocular indirect Ophthalmoscopy’. This is an advanced technique used in hospitals to give us a very good view of the retina

  • Tonometry: This is to find the eye pressure

  • Visual fields: this is to check your peripheral vision (where appropriate)

  • Pupil dilation:  we often do this to get a better view of the inside of the eye

  • We carry out many other tests in addition to the above and routinely check for:

  • Glaucoma

  • Cataracts
  • Retinal problems /disease
  • Macular degeneration
  • Anterior eye disorders including corneal problems
