NHS/Private eye examinations

Eye examinations

Why Choose Us?

3D OCT Line Scan of an eye

Regular eye examinations ensure that you are enjoying the best vision possible and will identify eye conditions such as glaucoma, cataract, and macular degeneration in their early stages. Our opticians can also gain a useful insight into your general health from the appearance of your eyes and may detect underlying conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes.

We offer more than just a sight test.

A typical eye examination may include:

  • Discussion including your health, you and your family’s ocular history, and your visual requirements for work and hobbies.
  • Examination of the front and back of the eye by an Ophthalmoscope and/or Slit lamp.
  • Assessment of spectacle prescription for the required working distance, such as distance (TV, driving), intermediate (VDU) and near (reading, sewing)
  • Muscle balance tests to make sure both eyes are working precisely together.
  • Tonometry (measurement of internal eye pressure -routine aged over 40)

Any other test deemed necessary by your Optician (colour vision, visual field testing etc.)

NHS eye examinations are available at Molsom & Associates for both adults and children who are eligible. All of our NHS patients are welcome to upgrade their eye exam to an advanced test which takes advantage of our OCT technology.
