We are committed to offering you the highest standards of professional service. Your eyesight is priceless and deserves the best possible care.
Your Eye Health
Without good eyesight it is difficult to take part in most everyday activities, such as reading, driving and watching TV. But poor vision may also indicate the presence of potentially serious eye diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration, or general health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Because eyesight problems often develop slowly, you may not notice any symptoms initially. So it is important to have regular eye examinations. The sooner a potential problem is detected, the greater the chances at it being treated successfully.
If you haven't had an eye examination within the last two years, we recommend you call us now for an appointment. We will examine your eyes thoroughly and answer any questions you might have about your vision.
Free Eye Tests
Our practice offers NHS and private eye examinations. Many people are now entitled to free sight tests under the NHS and they may also qualify for help with the cost of their glasses.
Because spectacles draw attention to your face, they can make a big difference to the way you look. That's why it is important to wear a style which really suits you - and why we always take the time to make sure you look good in your new glasses. Our dispensing staff are specially trained to help you choose the right frame based on your facial shape, colour preferences and lifestyle. They will ensure that your spectacles fit properly and are comfortable to wear.
You will find there is a wide choice of frames in hundreds of different styles and colours at our practice, including designs made from ultra-light titanium. These are twice as strong but up to 50% lighter than standard metal frames, making them much more comfortable to wear.
Our selection of frames is regularly updated so that you can choose from some of the most fashionable styles available. We stock many of the leading designer collections as well as offering frames for more conservative tastes.
We believe that looking good should be affordable, so you will find our prices are as attractive as our frames. Our stylish eyewear offers you excellent value for money.
In recent years there have been major improvements in spectacle lens technology. This means we can fit your frame with lenses that give better vision, look more attractive and are more comfortable to wear.
If your eye examination shows you need new spectacles, our trained dispensing staff will advise you on the best lens options - without obligation. Your individual visual requirements, your lifestyle and your budget will all be taken into consideration to ensure you receive lenses which meet your specific needs.
In order to provide you with the highest standard of eye care available we offer an additional examination procedure using a digital retinal camera, which enables us to capture images of your retina (the inner surface at the back of your eye. This is a painless non-invasive test, which usually requires no dilation and takes only a few minutes.
A permanent and accurate record is kept of the condition of your eyes enabling early diagnosis of borderline disc, macular, or blood vessel changes or pigmentations and accurately monitoring the progression of existing condition. It is especially recommended to those that have specific medical problems or a family history of ocular diseases.
