Because eyesight is precious and good sight and healthy eyes aren’t optional, we offer three 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
(£25 with NHS sight test)
Our advanced eye examination is an upgrade to your basic sight test and includes an Optomap retinal scan
Extended Eye Examination: £60
(£40 with NHS sight test)
This is our gold standard in eye care and includes both Optomap and OCT retinal scans

Children's Eye Care
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.
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.
Everyday in Wales nearly 3 people lose their sight. But 50% of sight loss is avoidable with early detection and treatment.
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.
Allow us to see so much more detail than traditional methods or retinal cameras.
Allow us to see the layers of the retina which helps us detect treatable eye conditions more easily.
No need to wait for results either. We review and explain your scan results with you during your consultation.
