If you haven’t had an eye test within the last two years, we would recommend that you call our Hillingdon, West London opticians practice for an appointment. We will conduct a thorough examination and answer any questions you might have about your vision, diabetes and high blood pressure.
Many people are now entitled to free sight tests under the NHS, and they may also qualify for help with the cost of their glasses. Our practice offers both NHS and private eye examinations.
For an additional fee, the practice can carry out extended eye examinations, using state-of-the-art equipment, to help diagnose conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, dry eye syndrome and keratoconus.
The results – which are stored on a computer, help to monitor some of these conditions over time. They also help in referring cases that need to be dealt with urgently.
This includes several different eye tests that are tailored to your individual situation and are based on our professional evaluation of your visual requirements:
Finally, we will give you an explanation of your vision and eye health, plus a copy of your optical prescription.
