Eye tests explained

The last ten years have seen a remarkable change in the way people are living their lives and many of us are now spending in excess of six hours a day staring at either a computer screen or television.

Not surprisingly, this places increased stress on our eyes, which may lead to blurred vision. It is therefore important to ensure that you have your eyes tested every two years, or more frequently if required.

Our qualified optometrists will test your eyes using modern equipment and will give you appropriate advice on what action needs to be taken. As well as monitoring changes in your sight, we will screen for conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes and high blood pressure.

Remember, you cannot “fail” an eye test. We do try to explain the process clearly, but if you do not understand anything or require more information, please ask the optometrist who will be delighted to help you.
