What To Expect At Your Eye Examination

Eye examinations are carried out by our trained and professional staff, who take you through each stage of your eye test and are happy to answer any of your queries.

A standard appointment takes between 20 and 40 minutes, depending on individual needs.

Most adults are recommended to have their eyes tested every two years. For some people over 70, tests should be carried out every year. Your optometrist may recommend more frequent eye tests if your vision is likely to change or if eye conditions require monitoring.

Free NHS funded eye tests are available for people under 16, under 19 and in full-time education, aged 60 and over as well as other groups. Please ask our staff for details. Our private eye examination is available for all those who are not eligible for the NHS eye examination.

Your eye examination is an opportunity for you to discuss with a professional any concerns you have about the health of your eyes or your visual requirements.
