Our optometrists strongly recommend the Advanced Eye Examination to all our patients over 40 years old. We feel this provides the best level of clinical care.
Referrals / second opinions / problem solving
Many of our patients are referred by their doctor or come to us for a second opinion. The NHS Sight Test is not adequate for this and therefore we strongly recommend upgrading to at least the comprehensive eye examination.
Most children will not require the extended eye examinations.
Certain simple examinations (such as after a cataract operation) will still be adequately covered by the NHS sight test.
Patients under active hospital treatment (e.g. for glaucoma) may not require the extended examination.
Visually impaired patients seen under the local Low Vision Aid scheme may not need an extended eye examination.
