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.
MINOR EYE CONDITIONS SCHEME

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.
