A regular examination is important,not only to determine the prescription to give you the best vision possible,but to check for any optical health problems.We have modern computerised equipment to check eye pressures and visual fields.An enhanced eye examination is offered where,by using a digital fundus camera,a very detailed photograph of the retina can be taken.This gives a photographic record of any anomalies caused by conditions like diabetes,macular degeneration etc.The optometrist can then compare any changes to the eyes at each examination.
We allow half an hour for a routine eye test,so an hour should be allowed for your visit to allow for spectacle frame selection and dispensing.
Many people are entitled to free NHS examinations.
