EYE EXAMINATIONS

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, in order to protect you and our team,  we have had to adapt the way we do things. This has meant that some of the tests that we would have done normally during an eye examination have been deemed, by our regulator, as unadvisable.

 

In order for us to still be able to deliver the excellent clinical care that you expect from us safely, we have utilised our advanced technology. This means that during this crisis we are offering the following levels of eye examination.​

For Adults:

 

A Superior Eye Examination – this includes OCT scans, Goldmann Applanation Tonometry and ultra-wide Optomap Scans.

 

  • Private £80

  • NHS £50

For Children (qualifying for an NHS sight test):

 

We are offering a comprehensive eye examination, with ultra-wide Optomap Scans. We have reduced the cost of this examination from £35 to £20

We offer a three-tiered system to make sure that you can get the type of eye examination you need.
