High quality eye care using advanced optical technology

 

A simple 40 minute eye examination gives our optometrists enough time to detect any eye conditions or health problems that you may have. Without regular eye examinations, conditions like glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetes may go unnoticed until they reach an advanced stage.

Your vision and eye health is extremely important to us. To ensure that you receive a thorough eye examination and the best eye care we use the very latest optical technology; this allows us to give you an in-depth analysis of your eye health.

Memory Opticians When you visit our practices you’ll be greeted by our friendly practice team. They’ll help you to settle in to the practice ahead of your eye examination. They’ll also ask you a few questions about your eyesight, health and current eyewear so that our experienced optometrists can complete the appropriate tests on your vision.

You will then move to one of our consultation rooms where our optometrists will discuss your vision and eye health with you before testing your eyesight. As well as testing the strength and health of your vision, we’ll give you the opportunity to see what the inside of your eyes looks like. All of our optometrists are retinal photography specialists.

Using state of the art optical equipment, our optometrists will take a picture of your eye. This will help us to detect any damage to the retina and the onset of common eye conditions. The image of your eye will be kept in your records and will help us to analyse your vision next time you visit us.

Once your eye examination is complete our optometrists will talk to you about your eye health and anything they feel you should be aware of, before handing you over to our friendly practice team. They’ll help you to find your ideal eyewear and give you all the information you need to look after your eyewear efficiently.

If you have any questions about your vision, the eye examination or your new eyewear, please don’t hesitate to ask one of our team members. They’ll be more than happy to give you in-depth advice and information.
