Personal Eye Care
Eye care is not just about deciding whether you need spectacles or not. Your overall eye and general health should be checked regularly by a qualified optometrist.
There are Eyeplan schemes that take care of members whatever stage of life they are at or whether they prefer contact lenses, glasses or both.
Accidental Damage Cover
All spectacles purchased whilst by members of Eyeplan are covered by the Accidental Damage Scheme. Simply put; for two years from date of purchase of your spectacles they will be covered against any accidental damage.
Because sight is so valuable, it is vital to not only be proactive about your eye health but also ensure that you choose the healthcare provider with the training and experience required to fully meet your needs.
It is important to have an eye examination on a regular basis. We recommend that children and those aged over 70 have an eye test every year and that everyone has their eyes tested every two years (unless otherwise advised by your optometrist).
Aside from checking your eyesight, regular eye examinations can pick up early signs of eye conditions such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy and can detect underlying general health issues such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
At David Snow Opticians you can be assured that you will receive the very best treatment from highly trained staff. We are also firm believers in ensuring that we explain everything clearly.
You can book your eye test with us today by contacting us on 01303 263 770 or by booking online.
You will still have a full check of your ability to read figures both in the distance, and at a normal distance for reading although now the letters are created by a projector.
However, there is far more these days to an eye test than a simple vision check. We have a suite of equipment which examines the health of your eye in many different ways. For example our digital cameras take detailed images and 128 individual scans of the back of the eye which are effectively cross-sections through the retina and show up the structures of the back of the eye in incredibly fine detail. It can then put all the scans together to produce a three dimensional image of the retina which allows us to see and understand much better the very fine changes which can be the indications of something going wrong.
The images are stored on our computer so we can look at them at your next eye examination to look for any trends or changes in the condition of your eyes.
These tests are included in our Premium Private eye examination and allow us to spot the early onset of various medical conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration or an incipient cataract.
This can also be added to a standard NHS sight test at a cost of £25 which we consider is a small price to pay for the reassurance that these extraordinary tests give.
For those with even more specialist requirements we use Shamir Lens needs some detail here of the conditions it remedies and the benefits.
