FAQ

Eye Tests

How often should i have an eye test?

You should have your eyes tested every two years, although children and some eye conditions may require more frequent checks. Regular eye examinations are important for vision and healthcare and can help identify conditions such as dementia, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, arthritis, glaucoma and tumours.

Do you offer sight testing at your retail store?

Yes. We currently carry out sight testing on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. All of our eye examinations are carried out by our fully qualified optometrist. You can check for availability and book a test by completing the form on the booking page. Standard eye tests cost £25 and OCT scans are an additional £15. See the booking page for more information.

What can i expect at a typical eye exam?

During the eye test, patients will undergo a series of evaluations to assess their focus, depth perception, responsiveness to light and eye health as well as checking for any general health issues. Before the test begins, a complete patient history will be taken, and any vision problems or symptoms will be reviewed. Once these tests and examinations are complete, the optometrist can determine if any vision correction such as glasses are needed.

Who will be carrying out the eye examination?

Dr Hardip Sangha is a GOC registered optometrist and he is committed to the highest clinical and ethical standards. He is able to identify general health issues (such as diabetes and high blood pressure) and detect defects in vision and ocular health.
