Optometrists and Contact Lens Practitioners

Eye Examinations

We offer a comprehensive, professional eye examination for all Private and NHS patients performed by fully qualified, registered Optometrists. During an eye examination the health of the eyes is assessed, levels of vision measured and the prescription required to correct any sight defect is produced. All patients are given time to express any problems or concerns they might have about their eyes and after the consultation the results will be fully discussed and all advice will be carefully explained.

In addition to prescribing spectacles, all of our Optometrists are also able to advise on the suitability of individual patients for contact lenses and refractive surgery.
