We rely on our sight in all aspects of daily life and an eye examination is essential to monitor eye health and maintain the best vision possible. Our eye examinations usually last 45 mins for people of all ages but we will advise you if you require any extra specific tests and how long these may take.
Specialist, Tailored Eye Care
We have a general routine we perform for every patient but as we like to treat every patient as an individual we will tailor the examination similarly, which guarantees you a thorough eye examination. As well as including all tests to check your sight and to see if any vision correction is required we also check for any potential eye disease like glaucoma, cataract, macular degeneration to name a few.
The optometrist will always explain the results of the various assessments and you will be given every opportunity to ask any questions. The recommendations given at the end will take into account factors such as working enviroment, lifestyle and any leisure pursuits you have so we can meet your visual needs in the best possible way.
