EYE EXAMINATIONS

We rely on our sight in all aspects of daily life, therefore an examination is essential to monitor eye health and maintain the best vision possible. We strive to provide the most thorough eye examinations using the latest equipment and advanced technology so you have full confidence in our findings and recommendations.

Our eye examinations do much more than just test your vision, your eyes offer a glimpse of your overall health. Many diseases show early signs in your eyes, including diabetes and cardiovascular health. For instance, conditions such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol can all be discovered during a routine eye examination.

Following on from your eye examination, our optometrist will advise you of your own individual and specific requirements. Looking after your eyesight for the future is important, book an appointment with us and protect your vision today.

Whilst ensuring that your vision is as perfect as possible, our eye tests also help protect you against many eye conditions that are often symptomless. Not only can regular eye tests detect common eye problems, they can detect other conditions that affect the rest of the body.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU REQUIRE AN EYE TEST?

Eye examinations are free to everyone in Scotland under the NHS. We recommend patients take regular eye examinations every one or two years.

If you are aged 70+, are diabetic or have a family history of glaucoma or any other eye conditions, we recommend you have an eye examination once a year.

If you are under 18, we recommend an eye examination every 6 – 12 months or if you are aged 18 – 70, we recommend an examination every two years or whenever you are experiencing any symptoms.

It is important that everyone should have an eye examination every 2 years but if you fall under the above category, we recommend more regular check-ups.

Regular eye examinations are fundamental to the care of your eyes, this allows for early detection of cataracts, diabetes, glaucoma and macular degeneration whilst maintaining the best health possible for your eyes.
