Routine Eye Examinations
Our fully qualified ophthalmic opticians (optometrists) have many different methods of assessing the well-being of your eyes, and your health in general. Did you know the back of the eye is regarded as the ‘window of general health’? This is because general health issues, such as diabetes and hypertension, can be detected with an examination of the eyes. It is difficult to list what an eye exam consists of, as each will be tailored to a patient’s individual needs.

We have invested in the latest technology including fundus camera's and state of the art reading charts, delivering an eye examination of the highest quality
