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

 

  • Completing the Pre-exam form as fully as possible will be extremely helpful and will reduce your time in the consulting room

 

  •  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

PPE

 

The optometrist will be wearing the required PPE and we will also provide you with an appropriate and well fitted mask – this helps to protect us too.

How are we keeping you safe? 

Ventilation

 

  • Windows in the practice are kept open during the day

 

  • The consulting room will also have it’s windows fully open during your eye test to ensure good ventilation – if it's a cold day, you may want to to keep your coat on.

Infection control

 

  • We make extensive efforts to ensure everything in the consulting room is disinfected

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

 

 * 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.
