We are known for both our investment in the latest equipment and for the thoroughness of our eye examination. This is partly because every eye examination takes a minimum of 30 minutes and all tests are carried out by a qualified ophthalmic optician. We don’t think anyone benefits from moving from one person to another for different tests.
YOUR iSPY EYE TEST
At iSpy we have an “inclusive policy” whereby our opticians carry out the tests they feel are necessary for your age and particular needs, all without charging add-ons or extras. Clinical Imaging services are available.
DO I NEED AN EYE TEST?
Hold out your hand at arm’s length in front of your face. Now hold up three fingers. If you can’t see every finger, you most probably need an eye test. If you can see four fingers you need another form of test. If all you can see is a little leprechaun dancing, you need to leave the establishment you are reading this in and sleep it off. Knowing whether you need an eye test is even simpler than that. You can either be guided by the suggested frequency of visits suggested by UK healthcare guidelines, or you can be needs guided i.e. there is something wrong with your vision that may need examination.
For most people, the recommended national visit schedule is:
Under 16 – Yearly
16 – 69 Years – Every two years
Over 70’s – Yearly
Glaucoma patients/those with a family history of Glaucoma – Yearly
