Your examination will be thorough, unhurried and exhaustive. Bring any glasses and spare pairs that you are currently using and if you’re a contact lense wearer arrive wearing your lenses. Every patient needs different amounts of time depending on why they have come to see us, and so there is always enough time allocated to address your needs. You can expect your eye examination to last 30-60 minutes. If new spectacles are required we will move on to the dispensing room where a qualified Dispensing Optician will take measurements and help you find frames to suit you.
Nowadays, almost everyone can benefit from contact lens wear. Most eyesight problems can be corrected with contact lenses and they are suitable for people of all ages, including children. Wearing contact lenses provides excellent peripheral vision, allows you to wear sunglasses and sportswear e.g. goggles/helmets, and they don’t steam up when you enter a room or affect your vision outside in the rain! Many people aged 40+ struggle with near vision; mulit-focal lenses can provide a solution to this common problem and avoid the need for reading glasses. There are many types of contact lenses available and we will advise you on the best option for you and your lifestyle. We offer free contact lens trials and comprehensive Contact Lens Care Packages which maximise your comfort and convenience of contact lens wear. Just ask for details during your consultation.
Ortho-K, or Orthokeratology, is an innovative way of helping to control Myopia (short-sightedness). It can be employed even if your Myopia has stabilised. The idea behind Ortho-K is to offer freedom from spectacles and contact lenses during your waking hours.
Our Dispensing Opticians will use their many years of experience in professional optical dispensing to advise on the best frame and lenses to suit your lifestyle and aesthetics. Great care and attention to detail ensures complete satisfaction and results in spectacles to be proud of. It is very important to us that our customers are happy with their glasses!
