NEW

In our practice now, we can offer our patients an OCT scan.

 OCT-Optical Coherence Tomography- is an advanced eye scan for people of all ages. It captures both a photograph and a cross-sectional scan of the eye at the same time giving us more information than ever before about the health of your eyes.  A fee is payable for your OCT scan.    This Topcon video demonstrates the scan and explains its advantages.

DOMICILIARY EXAMINATIONS

Patients unable to visit our practice due to various reasons including disability, age or illness can book a domiciliary eye test.

Our Ophthalmologist can visit the patients home, and organise spectacle or other optical appliances as necessary. Many domiciliary eye tests are free but there are government restrictions.
