Our Eye Tests
Comprehensive NHS & Private Eye Tests in Downend
We know that eye tests are sometimes daunting, but rest assured that you are in safe and experienced hands.
At any age, regular eye exams are important as they check that your eyes are healthy and that your vision is clear. If you already have an optical prescription, a regular and thorough eye test will make sure that you are getting the right eyewear, or contact lenses, that you need.
Each step of the way, our expert team are on hand to help you whatever your age, medical or optical history. We are also happy to take the time you need for any questions to make sure that you can fully understand your eye test and any results.
Once your test is complete, if necessary, our dispensing team can advise on the best frames, sunglasses, and contact lenses for you.
We have invested in the highest quality equipment to ensure that we are able to provide the best possible care for your eyes by offering an enhanced eye examination.
Our most advanced piece of equipment is our OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) machine. This non-invasive & painless screening machine is able to capture 3D images of the retina at the back of your eye. This will show us the deeper layers of the retina, which we are unable to see just by looking in with conventional techniques and can show us problems long before we notice them visibly.
Potential concerns such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and many other issues can now be spotted much earlier.
OCT scans are not funded by the NHS or our standard eye examination, therefore there is an additional cost if you choose to have them.
Please enquire about our enhanced eye examinations when you make your appointment, or feel free to ask us when you come to see us if you have any questions.
We take your eye health seriously, which is why we are proud to offer optomap® as a part of our comprehensive eye exams. Optomap is an advanced retinal imaging technology that allows us to view more than 80% of your retina in a single image, compared to traditional methods that typically show only 15% of your retina at one time.
The technology enables us to detect early signs of eye conditions such as retinal tears, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration, often before you notice any symptoms. With a wide-field view of the retina we have more information to improve the diagnosis and, ultimately, the treatment plan.
