Eye Examinations

Not only is your eye examination a fully comprehensive vision assessment but it is also an eye health check which could lead to a journey towards better eye health.

Even if your eyes feel the same as they did the last time you had them checked, regular eye examinations are important and can lead to the early detection and treatment of many common eye problems such as cataracts, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration. 

Additionally, assessing your eye health can also help to detect conditions which affect the whole body such as diabetes, high blood pressure and arthritis.

We offer a range of eye assessments for your specific needs:

Gold Eye Examination

£68
Free to Broadhurst Plan members
£28 + NHS Funding (Lytham)
£28 + NHS Funding (Preston)
40 minute comprehensive consultation 

This is our Gold standard appointment, the pièce de résistance of our eye examinations, delivering the optimum level of eyecare.

In addition to an in-depth eye examination, we will also determine the health of your eyes using the latest eye technology.

We pride ourselves on our unhurried service, and we will take the time to discuss how healthy your eyes are and provide tips on how to keep your vision and eyes healthy.

Our state-of-the-art retinal photography equipment includes the Optomap (available at our Preston practice) and OCT (available at our Lytham practice). Each of these technologies allows us to examine parts of the eyes which are otherwise not visible during a basic sight test. In conjunction with your sight test results, our clinically experienced optometrists can evaluate all of the findings to build a complete diagnostic picture of your current health and potential future eye health and vision risks. We have close links with doctors and can make referrals to your GP and hospital eye specialists if needed.

Diabetic patients: Although you may have access to diabetic screening, the Optomap imaging can provide insights about diabetic retinopathy progression that are otherwise unavailable*. Our optometrists are experienced within the industry and can provide a fully detailed report on your eye health.

Silver Eye Examination

Full Sight Test

Full Sight Test

Optical Coherence Tomography

This equipment is essentially the equivalent of an MRI scan of the eye, not only are we able to see the macula but we can also look at many areas of the retina in great detail.

Using the OCT, we can view any image taken with up to 150 different ‘layers’ available to view. It allows us to see the optic nerve head where all the nerves are delivered to the eye, or any other area that we wish to focus upon.

To find out more, read our blog on OCT.

Optomap

The Optomap ultra-wide digital imaging system allows us to capture more than 80% of your retina in one panoramic image.

Without retinal imaging, we are only able to see 10-12% at any one time. The Optomap enhances our ability to detect even the earliest sign of disease that presents on your retina. Seeing most of your retina at one time allows us time to discuss your retina with you and allows you to see what we see!

One of the greatest benefits of Optomap is our ability to save and store the images on your file, allowing us to compare images at future examinations.

As a result, we are able to monitor your retina much more accurately over the years. All of our optometrists strongly recommend the Optomap – as included in our Platinum eye examination.

Are you entitled to an NHS examination?

Free Basic NHS Test

If you are an NHS patient, you can enjoy the benefits of our Silver eye examinations with the option to upgrade to our Gold Examination.

To upgrade to Gold: £28 (Lytham practice)
                                   £28 (Preston practice)

We will test your vision and a provide a spectacle prescription if needed.

The NHS eye examination is covered for visual symptoms such as blurred vision. It is not suitable for investigating symptoms such as red eye, flashes, floaters, dry eye or foreign body sensation.

However, we are part of a scheme by the NHS which specifically investigates people presenting with minor eye conditions (MECS) and we can do this within our practice which helps you avoid waiting times at A&E and your GP surgery.

Proof of eligability may be required.
