If you are interested in wearing contact lenses, we will offer you an appointment for a consultation/fitting. This will usually be longer than a routine appointment, as the optometrist will want to discuss with you which types of contact lens would be most likely to suit your needs.

Many patients have been told that they are not suitable for contact lenses because they need bifocal spectacles or because of astigmatism, a common condition in which the eye is more curved in one direction than the other.
In fact, almost all levels of astigmatism can be fitted with contact lenses given the appropriate level of skill and expertise, along with access to all manufacturers' products.
A visit to the opticians begins with an appointment to see
one of the optometrists for a Standard Eye Examination.
We provide a sympathetic service to small children (including infants — we are happy to see children at any age), the elderly and those with special educational needs. We provide a Domiciliary (Home Visit) Eye Examination Service under contract to the NHS for patients who are unable to attend one of our practices without substantial assistance.
In addition to our Standard Eye Examination, we offer a number of additional services.
