Nobody Looks After Your Eyes Like Us

Our thorough eye examinations make sure your eyes are healthy. They can detect serious eye diseases as well as general health problems.

Modern lifestyles can put our eyes under strain, especially if you work with computers, drive or watch television regularly.

If you’re having problems, or haven’t had an eye exam for two years, we strongly recommend you book an appointment today.

We use the most advanced technology

We are the only local practice to offer advanced Optomap Retinal Examinations.

This new technique gives our experienced optometrists a better picture of your eye-health – enabling us to detect early signs of diseases.

Optomap images are seven times larger than conventional ones. This gives our team more time to assess your eyes and discuss any problems with you.

Checking your retinas

Your retina is the delicate lining at the back of your eye. It’s like a film in a camera that captures light and sends images to your brain.

Although an unhealthy retina can lead to impaired vision or even blindness, most conditions can be treated successfully when detected early.

It’s important to have regular examinations. The retina has no nerve endings, so you might not be aware that an illness is developing.

What happens in an eye test?

Our expert team will ask you a few questions about your general health and lifestyle. This helps us to understand your needs.

We will assess:

  • Your vision without glasses or contact lenses
  • How your eye muscles are working
  • The health of your eyes at the front and back
  • Your eye pressure and peripheral vision

Once we’ve evaluated your eyes, we’ll recommend the best eye care for you.

Potential problems

Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) – Diabetes effects the eyes and kidneys. It damages tiny blood vessels in the retina and can cause blindness.

Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMS) – This disease effects the centre of the retina and can make driving and reading difficult.

Glaucoma – An illness where raised pressure inside the eye damages the optic nerve

Hypertension – High blood pressure can damage blood vessels in the eye as well as increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Book your eye examination today

Because the retina is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly, eye exams can reveal a great deal about your general health.

That’s why it’s sensible to arrange regular check ups.
