Contact Lenses

Everyone should have their eyes examined by a qualified optometrist at least every two years. Some medical conditions require more frequent eye examinations, which your optician should advise you about. Regular eye examinations are an important part of your general health care routine, as not only does the full examination check your vision it also detects signs for other underlying health problems. Not many eye conditions cause pain or discomfort and changes to your sight can be gradual and difficult to notice. Some conditions that can cause sight loss don’t even have any symptoms at all. So a full eye examination can help to detect such conditions and early intervention gives a greater chance of successful treatment. During your eye test, which lasts about 30 minutes, our fully qualified and experienced optometrist will complete a comprehensive examination which includes analysing a retinal image of the eye. The procedure is non-invasive, painless, simple, quick and is included as part of our standard consultation.

Examinations

Our prescription lenses are always designed around you the customer. There are many different lens options available and we work together with our customers and lens manufacturers to provide the perfect solution to suit your lifestyle and needs. Everyone is an individual and all our needs are different. So we discuss patient needs, lifestyle and day to day routines to ensure we advise and offer the best options available. As well as advising on the best lens design for our patient needs, we also discuss coatings, tints and photochromic options too. The cosmetic look of spectacles are also very important to us, so we take into account frame selection, lens indices and the customers prescription. It’s vitally important to advise on the whole package and our qualified, experienced team have the skills to deliver this service to our customers.
