Not all Opticians are the same: Make your choices count

All eye examinations are not the same. There are procedures that all sight tests must include (that’s a legal requirement), but there can be enormous differences between eye examinations, depending on a wide variety of things such as: –

The individual conducting the tests along with their experience and qualifications. The time spent with you and/or working on your results and the quality of the explanations to you are all going to be different.

Make your choices count.

We combine an enviable range of world-leading equipment (that many hospitals would like to have), along with the precious time needed to consider and analyse your results. Put this together with a recognised outstanding optometrist, with a proven record in problem solving combined with communicating and you have not just an eye examination, but a personalised ocular tour, with the reassurance you need for your vision.

You can choose from a range of eye care packages that extends beyond the standard sight test. Whichever package you choose you will see the same Optometrist on each visit (unless an emergency), as comparisons over time are an important feature of detecting conditions early. You will have dedicated time to talk about the results and our extended team of expert Ophthalmologists will be available should we need to refer you.

Advanced Care Package £149.00

This is our most popular package and is suitable for all those over 45yrs or who value their vision and have few risk factors (such as age, a high prescription or family history etc.). It offers more than the essential eye test to detect early signs of conditions that may be sight threatening and goes beyond the idea that its new lenses that can fix your blurred vision for example. Your consultation will last between 45 minutes to an hour and may include follow up visits requested by your optometrist at no extra charge.

During your initial assessment and review of your medical history, you and/or your specialist Optometrist will choose the examinations/tests that best suits your individual risk factors. It will include a three dimensional and multilayered analysis of one of the key structures within your eyes (using a piece of equipment called an OCT), as well as a few other tests. See below for a selection of those tests and their individual prices.

Because you are buying a package you will not be paying individually for your chosen tests, so saving you time and money.

Standard sight test is just that. It checks your sight now. The specified tests attempt to pick up conditions based on a combination of your responses and the results from different procedures, Done with a range of equipment with varying degrees of reliability. It is designed to pick up conditions in their manifest stages. This basic test is for those who are under 40 years, with no visual issues, who are healthy and /or consider themselves to be at low risk of conditions. Don’t expect this examination to resolve all visual problems with confidence. It’s a reasonable start in our view for those with no or low risks.

We prefer to do this test as an emergency for someone in need of a quick prescription perhaps or as an addition to the contact care package who are without any risk factors such as age, family history or previous eye injuries/anomalies. Maybe your child needs a routine examination. We will make the procedures fun and may take more than one visit depending on concentration levels that day.

If you as parents are our patients, then we will provide this examination with a 50% reduction in the fee.
