Space

  • You are the only person having an eye test in the practice at any one time.

 

  • Only one person, the optometrist, will take you through the process of your eye test​

 

  •  A remote refracting unit, called a digital phoropter, will be used to check your prescription.  This allows the optometrist to assess your spectacle prescription from more than 2 meters *

 

  • Digital cameras and OCT will be used to capture images of your eyes quickly to limit the time spent looking in your eyes

Infection control

 

  • Everything you, and the optometrist, will come in to contact with will be disinfected​​


 

CHOOSING FRAMES

 

  • Trying on frames is very much as normal, with the exception that ALL frames are disinfected beforehand.

  • Once you have tried a frame, please place it in one of the trays provided for disinfection.

  • Each frame will be disinfected BEFORE going back on display

  • We will give you as much help as you like - we will always be guided by you

 * The only exceptions to this are circumstances where your prescription may be better assessed using a traditional trial frame – the reasons are usually very strong prescriptions, high astigmatism, an abnormal head/neck posture and young children.
