More to it than meets the eye...

For some, an eye test is a means to an end, a quick check so that they can sell you some glasses. But at Clapham Optical we know that an eye exam does more than just determine if you can see well, it is a vital assessment of your vision, visual needs and of your overall health.

For this reason, at Clapham Optical your enhanced eye exam will last at least 40 minutes, with all aspects conducted by a senior optometrist. The average sight test in the UK last only 20 minutes, but we take our time so that you will never feel rushed. As part of our enhanced eye examination we will thoroughly assess your vision and eye health, using state of the art equipment and discuss the result with you so that you are confident the greatest care has been taken of your most precious of senses.

If glasses are needed, you will be advised on the lenses that will suit your vision and lifestyle best as part of our complimentary eyewear consultation with a senior dispensing optician.

Enhanced Eyecare as standard

Retinal photography and OCT scans are included as standard during your enhanced eye exam. This technology gives your optometrist an unbeatable view of the internal structures of your eye, allowing for a more in-depth assessment of your eye health.

By having regular enhanced eye examinations, we are able to build up a more complete understanding of your eye health and monitor changes over time. This allows for the detection of several eye conditions years before traditional techniques can, and often before symptoms arise.

NHS Sight Test

For those that are eligible we offer an NHS Sight Test. This is a 25-minute appointment with an optometrist that covers the essential aspects of eye care, including refraction and manual examination of the internal and external eye, as well as pressure readings and field of vision examination, as clinically required.

Our mission is to provide the highest level of clinical care and for this reason we recommend booking for our Enhanced Eye Examination. This gives all clients more time with the optometrist and access to our most thorough examination, using state-of-the-art equipment. NHS funding is not adequate to fully cover the cost, but the normal private fee of £50 is reduced to just £27.86 or just £6* per month by joining our care plan.
