It’s hard to overstate the importance of having regular eye tests. A comprehensive eye examination is effectively a full MOT for your eyes, highlighting changes to spectacle or contact lens prescriptions and flagging up health conditions long before they start to have a damaging impact on your sight.
A full eye test should be undertaken by a qualified optometrist, although some of the simpler checks can be handled by an optical assistant. If you wear contact lenses contact our practice before your appointment to check whether you should wear your lenses, as the appointment is designed to check the condition of your eyes without any vision correction aids in place. A few pre-exam questions will also help our optometrists establish any issues that have arisen since your last test, which will cover your general health, lifestyle, and level of fitness as well as your perception of your eyesight.
Here at David Wyse Ltd, we take pride in the reputation we have built over the years and are here to offer every one of our customers an exceptional range of eye care services.
Children’s eye tests
Regular eye tests are particularly vital for children and toddlers because their eyes can develop a number of vision problems that could last a lifetime if left undiagnosed, even though successful treatment is often quick and easy. Even if they’re too young to read, optometrists can still learn a great deal about your child’s overall eye health and vision. Modern eye examinations test every aspect of a patient’s sight, not just their prescription strength.
With David Wyse Ltd, we are happy to offer free NHS eye exams for children under the age of 16, or up to 18 years old if they are still in full-time education. Our experts will happily help your child find the right pair of lenses that fit correctly and that also look good, so they will be proud to wear their glasses whilst benefiting healthwise too.
To book an eye test for yourself or your children, please contact us today to speak to one of our friendly and qualified opticians.
