We offer eye examinations to determine vision strength and the health of the eyes. Patients can choose from a private eye consultation or a free NHS sight test, depending on individual eligibility. Vision is a precious gift and we are passionate about striving to preserve it.
All patients who book an eye examination at Eyesite Eyecare Centres will be delighted at the high standards of professional care and personal consideration. Extras such as slit lamp bio-microscope examination, tonometry and topography are conducted FREE of extra charge where deemed necessary as part of a standard examination at Eyesite Eyecare Centres.
We also offer Digital Retinal Fundus Photography and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT).
A Private Eye Consultation by any of our qualified optometrists, registered with the General Optical Council costs £30.00. This consists of a collecting information about your symptoms and history, checking your external and internal eye muscles, measuring your refractive error (lens power), and where necessary, checking colour vision, intra-ocular pressures, central and peripheral visual fields. Back of eye and front of eye photography, corneal topography, OCT and visual stress assessments can also be conducted. The culmination of all this information is appropriate advice and guidance to you on the correct optical appliance for you.
