An eye examination is an important assessment, not only of your vision and visual needs, but also your eye and general health.
For this reason, at Clapham Optical your eye examination will be conducted by a senior optometrist. You'll have generous time allocated so that you will never feel rushed. 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.
But we don't stop there. Your eye examination is just the first step to optimised vision. Following your eye exam, your optometrist will hand you over to one of our qualified dispensing opticians and eyewear styling consultants. This is an important relationship as the optometrist can pass on information about your unique circumstances. This allows us to present tailored eyewear solutions so that you can live your life without compromise.
You may have been to one of the high street chains and experienced a sight test that seemed to be over before it began. There was little time to answer your questions or understand your needs. You were left looking at rows of frames with no idea what really suits you. Most opticians are often under time pressure to see as many people in a day as possible. We don’t work like that. At Clapham Optical your eye examination may last up to 40 minutes. You’re in a friendly, relaxed environment and your styling consultation narrows the search to a handful of frames, perfectly suited to you.How we work
We believe that good optometry is a skill honed over years of training and experience, but advances in technology are allowing us to examine the eyes in ways that are impossible by traditional techniques. We are committed to continued investment in new technology that provides us with more detailed information about your eyes and allows your optometrist to make a more accurate and earlier diagnoses of many potential eye health concerns. We are able to detect and monitor problems that may affect your vision and eye health earlier and more accurately than ever before, in particular conditions such as age-related macula degeneration, glaucoma, diabetes and cataracts, as well as non-ocular conditions such as high blood pressure.
