Eye Examinations

Like any Opticians, the Primary Care clinic offers comprehensive eye examinations (sight tests), providing a prescription for spectacles if required, a detailed assessment of the health of your eyes and screening for diseases that affect the eyes and vision. We also provide health and safety advice and spectacle correction for those working on computers.

Eye examinations are undertaken by final year Optometry students under the direct supervision of qualified Optometry staff. Because the examination is very thorough and closely supervised, it can take up to 1.5hrs to complete all tests. For this reason, we offer sight tests, spectacles and contact lenses at reduced costs.
