OUR EYE EXAMINATION OPTIONS

  • Because eyesight is precious and good sight and healthy eyes aren’t optional we offer 3 levels of eye examinations from a basic sight test right up to to the most detailed examination using the latest technology.

  • Basic Sight Test: £30
    (Free with NHS sight test)

     

    Advanced Eye Examination: £45

RETINAL SCANNING

Everyday in Wales nearly 3 people lose their sight. But 50% of sight loss is avoidable with early detection and treatment.

  • Retinal Scanning

    To help us detect treatable eye diseases earlier we have invested in the latest diagnostic technology. Our Optomap and OCT retinal scanners are powerful diagnostic instruments that are able to show so much more detail than traditional methods or simple retinal photography. The scans are safe, non-invasive and painless tests that give us invaluable information to help pick up the subtlest of changes to your retina.

     

    No need to wait for results either. We review and explain your scan results with you during your consultation.

  • Optomap Images

    Allow us to see so much more detail than traditional methods or retinal cameras.

     

  • OCT Images

    Allow us to see the layers of the retina which helps us detect treatable eye conditions more easily.

GLASSES

  • Glasses are a long term investment, we think it’s important to get it right

    Choosing new glasses can be fun, but we also know some people can find it quite stressful. Our dispensers have many years of experience in helping you choose the right pair but we’ll also leave you to browse by yourself if you prefer. You can take as long as you like and you will never be rushed or pressurised into making a decision.

     

    If you can’t make your mind up we have some great two for one offers so you can have that second pair for a different look or just a spare pair.

     

    We’ve more than 30 years experience in buying frames and our customers and patients tell us that design, quality and comfort are the most important features of a great pair of glasses. But we also know the importance of great value so we only stock frames that we think are worth their price.

  • Life can be visually demanding, let us help you reduce the strain

    Using digital devices such as smartphones, tablets and computers is a necessary part of life, but it can take its toll. Switching from on-screen to off-screen and back all day can overwork your eyes – and lead to tiredness, dryness, and redness.

     

    Modern lenses designed to meet your individual lifestyle needs can make a real improvement to your quality of vision and visual comfort.

     

    Our dispensing staff have considerable experience with these high spec lenses and can help you choose the right lens for your personal needs.

     

    You don’t buy new glasses every week or every month so let us help you get it right

  • Not all Multifocal Lenses are the same

    Now you can have lenses designed around your individual needs.

CHILDRENS EYE EXAMINATIONS

  • Children may not be aware of or be able to explain their vision difficulties

     

    Poor eyesight can have a significant effect on children’s ability to learn and on their behaviour – yet often goes unrecognised by teachers, parents and by children themselves and – as a parent – you may not notice any problems.

     

    First eye test?
    Children’s eyes should be tested before they start full time school. There are techniques and ways of testing children’s sight for all ages, even newborns. They do not have to be able to read letters on a test chart to have a thorough eye examination.

     

    Eight is too late!
    The sooner vision problems are detected – the better the outcome. Many childhood eye conditions, such as squints (strabismus) and lazy eye (amblyopia), can be treated if they are picked up early, especially during the early school years.

  • Eye examinations are Free for all children and paid for by the NHS

     

    An NHS sight test is free for all children under the age of 16 and also for all young people in full time education under the age of 19. In addition to this if glasses are needed an NHS voucher is provided that enables them to choose from a fabulous range of FREE GLASSES or it can be used against a wider choice of affordable frames.

     

    FREE Optomap retinal imaging (usually costing a £25.00 supplement) We include free Optomap retinal imaging as part of an NHS sight test for children, when requested by our Optometrists. This helps us to see a much wider view (about 80%) of the retina which can also be used for future comparison.
