Eye Exam

Eye Exams at Early & Edmonds

We allow 45 minutes for a routine eye examination including retinal photography, tonometry and visual fields test. These are included as standard in both the private and NHS eye examinations. This allows enough time for all the necessary tests to be done in a relaxed, unhurried manner, reducing any fear you might have of being rushed into the giving the “wrong” answer.

Eye Tests for Children

All children under 16 (plus those under 19 in full-time education) are eligible for a free NHS eye test. We recommend that children return for an eye test every year (or more frequently if required).

We have a relaxed and friendly atmosphere so that children can feel at ease. Even in very young children, we can check the health of their eyes and establish whether there are any concerns – this can be done with the child sitting on the parent’s lap.

We offer two types of eye exams: a comprehensive and an enhanced exam.

A comprehensive eye exam includes an eye test, retinal photography and a visual fields test (with some exceptions).

An enhanced eye exam includes all the above and an additional OCT scan. An OCT is an advanced 3D scan that allows an optician to assess eye health in greater detail, detecting potential sight related problems at an earlier stage.
