When you visit your local optician, you want to make sure that every aspect of your eye health has been thoroughly examined. After all, you can’t change your eyes every two years, so it is important your time and money are invested correctly, to ensure your most precious sense is in optimal condition.
At Scotts Opticians, we understand how important your vision is to you, and we do everything we can to ensure your vision is optimal. That’s why we have extended appointment times to 30 minutes.
A 30 minute consultation will allow our experienced optometrists to ensure that your every visual requirement has been taken into consideration, while carefully checking your eyes for any conditions that could cause you a problem in the future. Additionally, we ensure that we leave enough time to explain our findings and recommendations to you at the end, in a way that is easy to understand and not rushed.
You may be feeling a little anxious before your eye examination, but we would like to reassure you that there is nothing to worry about. Your optometrist will make you feel relaxed the whole time you are here, and if there is anything you do not understand, simply ask. We would love to help you learn more about your eyes and what you can do to keep them healthy.
We cannot stress enough how important eye examinations are. Even if you think everything is OK with your eyes at the moment, an eye examination should be a vital part of your health routine. Just from an eye examination, our optometrists have detected sight-threatening diseases. We have then advised our clients to seek further medical advice, which in some cases has saved their life. Certain eye diseases, such as glaucoma and cataract, can appear without any visual symptoms. We’re here to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.
In addition to your prescription and checking the health of your eyes, our experienced optometrists are able to examine certain parts of your eye using a specialist retinal scanner called an OCT. This scanner provides us with an additional layer of information, not typically available in many high street practices.
Finally, if you do not need glasses we will not persuade you to buy them. We have a strong reputation for integrity, and your health is our main priority, not what you buy after your examination.
