Comprehensive Eye Care
Your Eye Examination Explained
Putting Your Eye Health First
Your eyesight is your most precious sense and deserves the highest standards of professional care. Without good vision it is difficult to enjoy most everyday activities, including reading, driving and watching television.
Poor sight may also indicate the presence of potentially serious eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration, or general health problems like diabetes and high blood pressure.
Because eye conditions often develop slowly, you may not notice any initial symptoms. That is why it is essential to have your eyes examined regularly by an optometrist. The sooner any problem is detected, the greater the chance of it being treated successfully.
This page explains what happens during an eye examination at our practice and how we will take care of your vision. We recommend that you read it carefully as it will help you to understand and look after your eyesight.If you have any concerns about your vision, you should contact us immediately. We provide quality eye care and will always take as much time as necessary to examine your eyes thoroughly and answer any questions you may have.
Have you ever thought about contact lenses?
There's never been a better time to wear contact lenses. Thanks to new designs and materials, they're very comfortable and affordable. These days contact lenses usually cost no more than a pair of glasses and you'll soon forget you're wearing them.
