An eye exam involves a series of tests to evaluate your vision and check for eye diseases. We may use a variety of instruments, shine bright lights directly at your eyes and request that you look through an array of lenses, but these are all necessary tests to determine the health of your eyes.
As with all aspects of your child’s development, eyesight is an area which should be monitored and treated if necessary. We have found that pre–school eye examinations can catch issues early on. The earlier they are caught, the better the treatment we can offer, and the better quality of life for your child.
Dry eyes is a common condition that occurs when your tears aren't able to provide adequate lubrication for your eyes. Tears can be inadequate for many reasons. For example, dry eyes may occur if you don't produce enough tears or if you produce poor-quality tears.
The NHS has launched a new free eye care service for people with minor eye conditions. Instead of waiting for a GP appointment or attending A&E, you can now make an appointment with your local PEARS qualified optician and be seen within one or two working days.
Contact lenses are an excellent choice for nearly anyone who needs vision correction and doesn't want to wear glasses full time or undergo surgery. Fitting includes discussing your visual and lifestyle requirements.
