You can be sure that our thorough eye examinations provide an accurate assessment of your vision and the health of your eyes. Each examination can take up to 40 minutes to provide sufficient time for this. Using the latest diagnostic techniques and equipment we check for many eye conditions including macular degeneration, cataracts and glaucoma to name but a few. Did you realise diabetes and raised blood pressure can sometimes be initially detected by changes to the back of the eye? For children in particular it is very important to detect any sight problems early, as undetected they can be detrimental to their learning and development. We are happy to see children of any age and recommend regular sight tests for all children over the age of 3 years. They are of course paid for by the NHS up to the age of 16 and up to the age of 19 for those in full time education.
