Eye Examination

We rely on our sight in all aspects of daily life and therefore an eye examination is essential to monitor eye health and maintain the best vision possible.

We strive to provide the most thorough eye examinations using latest technology and equipment so you, the patient has full confidence in our findings and recommended management.

What to expect?

Our eye examinations usually last about half an hour but we will advise you if you require any extra specific tests and how long these may take.

We have a general routine we perform for every patient but as we like to treat every patient as an individual the optician will tailor the examination similarly, which guarantees you a thorough examination executed smoothly, keeping you as relaxed as possible.

As well as including all tests to check for your sight and to see if any vision correction is required (e.g., spectacles, contact lenses) we also check for any potential eye disease like Glaucoma, Cataract, Macular degeneration to name a few.

Our equipment includes a digital retinal camera which allows us to take photographs of the inside of your eyes so even small abnormalities can be detected, recorded and compared in future checks. Combining this with modern examination techniques we can ensure all is done to help prevent unnecessary deterioration to your sight and eye health. Other tests we will carry out include binocular assessment (how well the eyes work together), peripheral visual field analysis and intraocular pressure measurement.

The optician will always explain the results of the various assessments and you will be given every opportunity to ask any questions you may have. The recommendations given at the end of the eye examination by the optician will take into account factors such as your working environment, lifestyle and any leisure pursuits you have, so we can meet your visual needs in the best possible way


How is AVA™ different?

Whether you’re new to glasses or have worn them for years you’ve probably come across the term glasses prescription. Your prescription is the result of your eye examination and allows your optician to dispense the right lenses to correct your vision.

Eyesight and corrective lenses are measured in dioptres, a unit of power. For decades eyes have been measured to a quarter of a dioptre (D), you may have seen your lens prescription ends with .25D, .50D .75D or just .00D.

This abides by the current correction standards, but it limits the precision corrective lenses can deliver and fundamentally it can limit your experience, so much so that 95% of the population has a more sensitive vision than the graduation steps of 0.25 current dioptres.*

That’s why we developed AVA, Advanced Vision Accuracy. A breakthrough vision experience in 3 key steps for maximum precision: eye examination, personalised measurements and lenses.
