Eye Examinations – NHS & Private

All our Optometrists are fully qualified and registered with the General Optical Council in Harley Street, London. Our Optometrists will carry out a fully comprehensive 30 minute eye examination, using the latest equipment, screening for eye conditions such as:

  • Glaucoma
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Cataracts

Eye examinations can also help detect other health-related conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure. We will explain the outcome of your eye examination and recommendations at the end of the test.

We believe that regular eye examinations are important in order to maintain healthy eyes and vision, normally we will recall you for an eye examination every 2 years, but sooner for some categories of patients. Regular eye tests are about more than just helping you see better – they can also help identify other health problems.

Digital Retinal Photography
This state of the art technology enables us to take a digital photograph of the back of the eyes the Retina, and thus allows us to detect and pick up the smallest of changes on the Retina, allowing us to monitor eye conditions such as Macular degeneration, Glaucoma and Diabetes.

Digital Retinal Photography where possible is now available FREE as part of our normal eye examination. This service is currently available at; Bilston & Willenhall.
