We know that how we manage your vision today has a big impact on how well you’ll see the world tomorrow.
The key is spotting potential eye health issues before they become major or irreversible.
To achieve this our practice utilises the latest technology, such as our OCT-A machine, which allows us to see changes in the blood vessels beneath the retina and macular, a warning sign for Glaucoma or Macular Degeneration. By picking up on these problems at the earliest possible stage we can advise you on the best options to manage your condition going forward.
But along with caring for your vision, we want you to look great too.
That’s why we offer a wide range of contemporary frames, with something guaranteed to suit everyone in your family

Your Eye Health Is Our Priority
Eye examinations can help you discover vision problems that may need attention. Some eye disorders are silent and can only be treated if detected early; a thorough eye examination is therefore recommended at least once every two years for everyone – even if you are not experiencing any difficulties.
A child’s early years are especially important for their development. If their visual system is not functioning well, it could result in them struggling to read and falling behind at school, or having difficulty in sporting activities. Often, they would be assessed for a behavioural problem.
A comprehensive eye exam is more than just a vision check. It also assess the entirety of your eye health, which can provide a good indication of your overall health. Glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration are only some of the things we look for as part of the check.
Whether you’re looking to try contact lenses for the first time, or it didn’t work for you in the past, our experienced optometrists are adept and enthusiastic about coming up with solutions to fit your particular lifestyle visual needs, including multifocal and even specialty contact lenses.
The continued worsening of your child’s shortsightedness can be a worrying experience. While there is no definitive cure at the moment, there are treatment options which have been shown to be greatly effective in slowing down the progression, including Orthokeratology. These can be suitable for children as young as 5 years old.
In this post-pandemic world, we are spending ever-increasing amounts of time in front of screens. We put in the effort to understand your specific workstation and visual needs, and make recommendations on the latest lens technologies that gives you the best vision and comfort, including anti-fatigue lenses and blue-light blocking coatings.
Dry Eye Therapy
Dry eyes (or watery eyes) are increasingly common, and can be irritating and difficult to address, sometimes requiring in-office treatments which we provide here. In most circumstances, we can give practical lifestyle suggestions that looks at the big picture and aims to address the root causes of your dry eyes.
Sometimes the eyes are just not able to see as well as they used to even with the best glasses on. This is where special attention to providing the right low vision solutions can make a difference.
