Eye Examinations

Everyone? s eyes are different so we tailor the eye examination to your individual circumstances.

Following an assessment of your previous history and discussion of your present situation and any symptoms, the eye examination will then usually include the following elements and tests to aid our professional assessment of your visual requirements.

Retinoscopy; Refraction; Ophthalmoscopy;
Digital Photography of the front and back of the eye
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) ; Electronic Visual Fields; Intra-ocular Pressure
In addition to the regular tests we also offer a Dry Eye clinic which is proving very successful.


Many people only think to visit their optometrist if they are having difficulty seeing well. However, even if you feel you can see perfectly well, eye examinations are important in order to check the health of your eyes.

Both adults and children should have regular checks, and those who drive should also ensure that they meet the required visual standard.
Children are normally examined in practice from around the age of four. However, if you are concerned there may be a problem with your child? s eyes we will be happy to see them at any age.
