Protecting your eyes when Skiing
We’re currently in the prime time for skiing season,
and it’s probably the last thing on your mind, but just because you’re on
Holiday, doesn’t mean you should be neglecting your sight while skiing. The UV
light reflects off the snow – and if you’re not wearing goggles, or goggles
with UV protection, it can cause serious damage to your eye sight.

Is your current eyecare provider giving you the service that you expect? ...or is he or she just too rushed or disinterested? Then move on & join us at Querido & Davidson.
We are a national award winning eyecare practice (established in 1956) with a long heritage of providing exemplary service and exceptional products.
Eye Tests & Examinations
Our Optometrists carry out a huge array of checks during your eye examination. These can include testing your eye pressure (to detect glaucoma - which, if undetected, could lead to blindness), checking sideways field of vision and the health of the back of your eye.
All these checks are quick and painless, and will provide us with important information that will help monitor any slight changes over time.
We fit a huge variety of contact lenses types to patients across the whole of the UK. We supply lenses to people of all ages, & all prescription types. Using corneal topography and slit lamp image capture we provide the highest standard of care to all our contact lenses wearing patients.
We specialise in iGo OVC, Ortho-K and Paragon CRT Orthokeratology work for all ages from 6 upwards. We are an accredited Chromagen contact lens practice. We supply varifocal contact lenses and contact lenses to correct astigmatism. We can also supply theatrical contact lenses for television productions.
In 2006 we were awarded the title of Contact lens practice of the year at the UK Optician awards.
