Our Optometrists are Alan Spurrett, Dieter Gringinger & Giles Wilson. With a wealth of experience, they also bring with them a knowledge and confidence that will put you at ease.
The Standard eye test takes around half an hour and everything you need to know will be discussed and explained during this time.
First there is a preliminary screening of your retina, cornea, refractive state and intraocular pressure using the very latest retinal photography, corneal topography, focimetry & auto refraction. This all takes about ten minutes and is completely objective and automatic. Following this any symptoms will be discussed and noted. This is followed by a detailed assessment of the refractive state of the eye and the binocular function. After this your visional state will be discussed & explained and any recommendations as to necessary correction can be made.
We now also offer our Advanced eye test which includes taking a 3D scan of the structure of the inside of the retina, giving you an invaluable ongoing record of the health & condition of your eyes. We do this by taking a photograph and a three dimensional cross sectional scan of the back of your eye with a 3D OCT Camera. It takes no more than ten minutes and is simple, non-invasive and completely painless.
