Eye exam explained

Our eye exams, within these programmes have been designed to allow patients the chance to supplement the basic NHS eye exam*, when appropriate, and upgrade to what we believe is world class optometry by utilizing some of the latest technology and predictive software available anywhere in the world.Regular eye examinations are important for everyone, even those of us who do not currently require visual correction or have any known eye problems. We recommend you have an eye examination at least every 1-2 years, or at an interval advised by the optometrist.

An eye examination not only provides an accurate assessment or your ability to see and the health of your eyes, but also offers an insight into your general health.Regular eye examinations will allow early detection of common eye problems such as cataract, glaucoma and macular degeneration, where early detection and treatment can often mean fewer problems in future. Regular eye examinations can also detect conditions affecting other parts of the body such as diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension) and high cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia).
