Sight Tests

Sight Tests

An eye examination is a battery of tests performed by an ophthalmologist, Optometrist or specially trained Doctor assessing vision and ability to focus on and discern objects, as well as other tests and examinations pertaining to the eyes. Health care professionals often recommend that all people should have periodic and thorough eye examinations as part of routine primary care, especially since many eye diseases are asymptomatic.

Eye examinations may detect potentially treatable blinding eye diseases, ocular manifestations of systemic disease, or signs of tumours or other anomalies of the brain.

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.
