Contact Lenses at Q&D
During your Eye Examination, our Optometrists will use advanced instrumentation & equipment to help them to look in detail for any signs of eye disease, and to monitor changes within the practice at each successive visit. That way if something abnormal is detected in future, all the information can be easily collated and sent on to the hospital eye department for investigation at an early stage.
You will be made most welcome either as an NHS or private client. Your advanced eye examination will give you ample time (between 40 and 60 minutes) to express any concerns that you have and discuss all the findings at length with your Optometrist. Our diagnostic instrumentation is used to provide an in depth high standard of examination to all clients that opt for an advanced eye examination. You can even choose to upgrade from an NHS sight test to have an advanced eye examination for a small supplement.
