Eye Examinations

At Telfords, your entire sight test is carried out by a fully qualified optometrist. As well as checking to see if you need glasses or contact lenses, our sight test is a check on the health of the eyes and can detect many common eye conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes, which if found and treated early can prevent further complications.

Our optometrists will guide you through the test and explain any results as well as detailing their recommendations. Our team will be on hand to help with choosing the right glasses or contact lenses.

We recommend you have an eye examintion at least every two years, although if you have a family history of glaucoma, or are diabetic you will need your eyes checked more frequently.

We also recommend that all children have an annual eye examination form around 4 years of age right through until they are 18.  With the amount of screen time children now have this is of particular importance.

A standard eye test is free if you qualify for an NHS eye test.

With advancing technology we can now offer two distinct levels of eye examination:

Our Standard Eye Test

This eye examination includes everything you would expect from a full eye test. 

Our optometrist will carry out a range of tests to look at the health of your eyes as well as working out the precise prescription that ensures your best vision.

With their recommendations our Dispensing Optician will help you chose glasses if required and ensure a perfect fit. This is what we all know as the traditional eye test.

Our Advanced Eye Test

Technology continues to push the boundaries of what is possible and we want to be able to offer you the very latest developments in eye care. 

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is the latest advancement in eye care and completely re-defines the health aspect of your eye test. As part of your Advanced Eye Test we carry out an OCT scan which gives us an unprecedented view of the back of the eye. Our equipment scans the back of your eye 30,000 a second by projecting light through your pupil. The image produced gives us microscopic detail about the health of your eye and is an invaluable tool.  It also gives us a baseline measurement for future years and eye tests so that by repeating the OCT scan we can show you any changes which take place over time.
