Eye Examinations

Regular eye exams do more than establish your prescription for glasses or contact lenses. Your eyes are an indicator of your overall health, so an optometrist is often the first person to identify chronic conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes and high blood pressure, often before you know they exist.

When you arrive for your Eye Examination we shall undertake a pre-screening assessment, including Retinal Imaging, Intra Ocular Pressure Testing and Visual Field Testing.

Our private comprehensive eye examinations, performed by experienced Specialist Optometrists, reflect the high quality of our resources, our investment in the very best optometric technology available and the increased time required for the procedures involved.  

We dedicate a minimum of 45 – 60 minutes for each examination to include Optomap Ultra Widefield Imaging, Spectralis 4D OCT enhanced retinal scanning and dilation (if necessary), threshold fields and anterior eye imaging if appropriate.

During this time you will go through a series of tests and scans which will help the clinicians make informed diagnostic decisions and also provide a baseline for future monitoring and management. 

We recognise that in today’s modern world, technology plays a key role in the diagnosis, management and treatment of most conditions / diseases. Thus we have spared no expense in equipping our practice with the latest and very best technology- an investment in excess of £200K.

We are most proud in having the Spectralis OCT machine by Heidelberg Engineering. This instrument sits at the very top of the pyramid of diagnostic tools in Ophthalmology (and other fields). This scanning microscope will detect, analyse and compare (to populations matched for age and gender) the most minute changes at the back of ones eye – vital for diagnosing, managing and treating conditions like glaucoma and macular degeneration.

As well as our comprehensive eye examinations, we run condition-specific specialist clinics, including a specialist Dry Eye Syndrome clinic equipped with the latest technology to provide the very best treatment and management.

The practice is fully air-conditioned and the consulting rooms also have an air replacement system, which completely refreshes the air every 7 minutes, ensuring a comfortable, fresh environment for your visit.
