How often should I have my eyes tested?

Most people should have an eye test every 2 years.  Not only do we check your sight, the eye is like a window to certain health conditions such as diabetes, glaucoma, blood pressure, cataracts and heart conditions - all of which can benefit from the difference early diagnosis can make.

Your optometrist will advise you if a more frequent test is required depending on your age and medical history.

 

Do I have to pay for an eye test?

Many people qualify for a FREE test under the NHS.  These include children under 16 or under 19 in full-time education, all aged 60 or over and people receiving certain benefits.

 

How old do children need to be to have an eye test?

Children can be tested at any age.  As they start learning to read and start school is a good time to be checked.  The earlier a problem is detected the more chance of successful treatment.

 

Am I able to wear contact lenses?

Most people can wear contact lenses.  Whether its occasionally for sports or going out on an evening or constant wear, todays soft contact lenses are instantly comfortable giving superb all round vision.  There are also an increasing number of contact lenses for near vision for those people who wear varifocals.  Our Optometrists can check your suitability and discus with you the range of lenses on offer.

 

If I've had a eye test at another opticians can I get glasses from you?

All we need is your latest optical prescription that you should have been given when you had your eyes tested.  All you then have to do is to decide on your frame.

At what age can I start wearing Contact Lenses?

Generally Contact Lenses can be worn from 12 years old, but eyes develop at different rates so suitability to wear contact lenses is judged on an individual basis.
