NHS Funded Exams

As a client of the NHS we are able to offer

examinations that are completely free of charge

to yourself. 



In this consultation our professionals will

determine your personalized prescription and 

carry out an internal and external check of your 

eye. 



As an independent optician we firmly believe in offering all patients that little bit extra beyond a routine NHS funded exam. Our supplementary procedures comprehend a more detailed analysis of your ocular health with the use of computerized practice software. 

 

You are welcome to a NHS-funded sight test if:

 

•    you’re under 16

•    you’re under 19 and in full-time education
•    you’re 60 or over
•    you’re registered as blind or partially sighted
•    you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes or glaucoma

•    you’ve been advised by an ophthalmologist (eye doctor) that you’re at risk of glaucoma
