Measuring and correcting your eyesight to it’s full potential is only part of a regular thorough eye examination which monitors the health of your eyes and consequently your overall well being.
Some common signs of vision problems are obvious such as headaches or eyestrain. However many potentially sight threatening diseases do not show any early symptoms. Conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts and diabetes. These can all be detected by regular eye examinations.
We use state of the art equipment to monitor the health of your eyes. Retinal Photography gives us a digital image of your eye which can be stored and used to monitor your eye’s health at future visits. Our OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) can detect signs of Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Diabetes and various other eye disorders much earlier than other techniques by performing 50,000 scans per second to build a picture of what is happening in the layers that make up your retina. early detection usually means better treatment options and better visual results.
All our optometrists are not only qualified and GOC registered but also are fully accredited to provide Locally Enhanced Community eyecare, to assist our GP and Hospital Eye Service colleagues.
Our appointment schedule provides sufficient time for advice to be given about your eyes and for any questions you may have to be fully answered. Our patients have told us how important this time is and how much reassurance it provides.
