Our Technology

Our technology includes:

Digital Retinal Photography

We have the latest technology to ensure you continue to have the best possible vision and enjoy good health. When we examine your eyes, we always look for the signs of disease which can be detected from looking at the back of your eyes.

With our digital retinal camera we can now take a photograph which will enable us to carry out a far more detailed examination than was previously possible. Every time you visit our practice, we will be able to compare your photographs to detect even the very smallest changes which might be the earliest tell-tale signs of disease. Many diseases are easier to treat and far less threatening when diagnosed early.

We believe that this technology will benefit both our NHS and private patients and is available
at a small extra charge. An investment in your future health that is well worth making.

When you next come into the practice, please ask for details.


Framestore system

Do you find it difficult to see yourself when you are choosing new frames?
Can choosing the right frame for you be difficult?
If so, then we have invested in a clever new system to help you out.

Our I-Pad App can freeze your face on screen, letting you see a clear picture of yourself in up to four frames. This not only helps you see clearly, but allows you to compare frames against each other on screen!

Completely free! This complimentary service is available to any patients who would like to find choosing their new frames an easier experience!

  • Joules

    Original prints and bold, bright colours are the main ingredients of the very first Joules eyewear collection.

    Handcrafted from the finest acetates and meticulously tailored for fit, our bespoke ophthalmic collection fully embraces the classic aesthetic. Style concedes to timelessness, trends are not acknowledged. Here time slows down to collect, not recollect.
