Throughout life, taking care of your eyesight by having regular eye examinations is extremely important, and as we grow older it becomes even more important.

If you are out and about, and not had a recent eye examination then organise one today. It does not take long and it is easy to do. 

If however, you find it difficult to go out to an optician by yourself then we can come to you and provide a full eye examination in the comfort and privacy of your own home. We bring all the latest testing equipment and if you are over 60 the visit and eye examination is completely free of charge.

We provide NHS funded mobile sight tests.  If you are eligible for an NHS funded sight test, you may obtain mobile services as follows:

• At home:  If you are unable to leave home unaccompanied because of physical or mental illness or disability

• At a residential or care home:  If you normally live there and you are unable to leave the home unaccompanied because of physical or mental illness or disability

• At a day centre: If you would have difficulty in obtaining sight testing services from practice premises because of physical or mental illness or disability or because of difficulties in communicating your health needs unaided.

If you have seen a particular practitioner before you may be able to request to see them again.

If you need new spectacles we have a large selection of frames to suit all tastes and budgets. All spectacles are personally delivered, fitted and checked to ensure vision and comfort and we can also call back anytime for adjustments or repairs.
