A regular eye test does a lot more than check whether your eye sight needs correcting. It’s also a vital health check that can pick up early signs of eye conditions such as glaucoma, cataract, age related macular degeneration (AMD) as well as detecting underlying general health problems, including diabetes and high blood pressure.
Each individual has unique optical needs, so it is important that changes to your sight are corrected and spectacles supplied if required. Our Optometrists will be happy to explain these changes and answer your questions.
Eye tests are carried out by our trained optometrists John E Daly FAOI, Gillian Raftery FAOI and Elizabeth O’Connor MC Ophtom.
We now have a retinal camera which allows us to photograph the interior of your eye. This is painless and simple and the photos are stored on our system. This allows us to diagnose a number of common conditions. We can monitor your eyes from year to year with this technology.
There is a testing room located on the ground floor which is suitable for wheelchair users.
