Covid-19: We are open!

NHS England see us as an essential eye service and as such we are open.

Please do not attend if you are displaying covid symptoms.

For your safety we are using PPE and ask that you wear a face covering when you arrive.

We have changed the way we provide eye examinations during the Covid pandemic,in line with sector guidance, and we now offer retinal photography as part of your sight test, where appropriate.

In addition to retinal photography we also offer OCT scans, which allow us to see beneath the retina, thus detecting conditions earlier.

OCT scans are included as part of a private sight test (£49) , but there is an additional charge (£25) for patients who extend their NHS funded sight test.

If you have any questions , please telephone , and our staff are ready to help.
