The Eye Examination

The Eye Examination

At Eye Options we provide a full and thorough eye examination which takes between 30 and 45 minutes.

Many patients are entitled to an NHS eye examination paid for by the Health Service (please ask our staff if you think that you may be entitled)


  • We start our examination with some questions

    to determine why you have come to see us and we also ask about your general health, any medication you may be taking and if there is a family history of any eye conditions.

  • The next step is to measure the focus of the eye,

    we use a state of the art "auto refractor" that tells us whether you are short-sighted, long-sighted, astigmatic or have no optical error at all.

  • Using a projection chart system

    we will accurately measure your vision at distance and near and give advice on visual tasks (i.e. driving, computer or sports use). We can then determine the best possible prescription for you.

  • The optometrist will then

    carefully examine your eyes from front to back and can capture images if anything unusual is detected, either for referral or monitoring.

  • We ensure we have the latest high-tech equipment including:

    • Slit lamp microscope see right uses up to 40x magnification teamed with a digital camera, this can be used to assess anything from the font to the back of the eye.

    • Tonometer for measuring the eye pressure to check for the presence of glaucoma or ocular hypertension

    • Visual field scanner that checks your peripheral vision and can rule out ocular or neurological disorders.
