We rely on our sight in every single facet of daily life and an eye examination is essential in monitoring your eye health and maintaining the very best vision possible. Our eye examinations usually last 45 minutes, for people of all ages, but we will advise you if you require any additional tests and how long these may take.
Specialist, Tailored Eye Care
We have a tried and tested eye consultation process that we perform for every patient, but as we treat every patient as an individual, we will tailor the examination as required and that guarantees you a thorough eye examination irrespective of your eye requirements. As well as including all tests to check your eye sight and to see if any vision correction is required, we also check for any potential eye diseases like Glaucoma, Cataracts or Macular Degeneration to name a few.
The Optometrist will always explain the results of the various eye assessments to you and you will be given every opportunity to ask any questions you have, and have those questions answered in an easy to understand manner. The recommendations given at the end of the eye test will take into account factors such as your work environment, your lifestyle and any leisure pursuits you have, so we can meet your visual needs in the best possible way.
