Many people think that a sight test is just about checking whether your vision needs correcting with glasses or contact lenses, but there are other important reasons to have a regular sight test.
A sight test is a vital check on the health of the eyes and includes the detection of eye conditions. Many of these, if found early, can be treated successfully, avoiding potential sight loss.Our eye examinations are comprehensive, making use of the latest technology in a relaxed but formal setting. Our optometrists also carry out a range of tests to assess the health of your eyes. We also offer services such as Diabetic Screening, Retinal Photography and Cataract shared care referrals.
A sight test can also detect other health conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes.
We are currently taking on both NHS and Private patients so now might be the perfect time to book in for an eye examination, especially if you haven’t been seen by an optometrist for over two years. To find out if you are eligible for an NHS sight test, please click here
