Eye examinations are important for checking the quality of your vision and the health of your eyes. During an eye exam, the Optometrist is also able to detect other medical conditions related to your general health. It is recommended that most adults should get their eyes tested every two years and for under 16s it is recommended every 12 months, unless advised by an Optometrist to have them tested more frequently. An eye exam takes about 30 minutes and once completed our friendly team will help you choose the right glasses. We welcome private and NHS Patients (for NHS eligibility see below).
At Direct Vision Opticians we offer free NHS funded eye exams to those who qualify. We also offer free glasses with single vision lenses or bifocal lenses (varifocals available as an upgrade option) for those that qualify for an NHS optical voucher.
