Eye ExamWe have invested in the latest imaging technology, enabling us to better monitor the health of our customer’s eyes. The magnification from this camera enables us to see problems which are hard to detect otherwise. Also, as the image is stored until the next visit, detecting change is enhanced. It only takes a few minutes to take a digital image of the inside of the eye and excellent results can usually be achieved without the need to dilate the pupil with drops.

The photographs are then stored on our computer and are easily accessed for reference at future appointments.

Many of our patients already request imaging when booking their routine eye examinations.

This diagnostic tool is used in some hospitals and we now offer this service to our patients for an additional fee of £5.
