We offer free NHS sight tests to those who are eligible, including children. All you need to do is sign a form which we will provide for you. If possible, please bring along evidence that you are entitled to a free NHS sight test.
All our sight tests include a check of your prescription and the health of your eyes and eyelids, as well checks for specific conditions such as Glaucoma, where appropriate. We are proud to include retinal photographs at no extra charge, allowing us to see changes in the eye and detect any problems as early as possible.
We can also offer an OCT 3D Retinal Scan for an additional charge of £15. This is particularly beneficial for patients at risk of Glaucoma or Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). Please ask the optometrist doing your sight test whether this would be beneficial for you.
The NHS also provides a voucher towards the cost of glasses to those groups marked with an asterisk in the list below.

Other patients on low incomes may apply for help towards their sight test by using an HC1 form. We are happy to advise you about this and can provide you with a form at reception.
