Having your eyes tested every 6 months is important not just because your eye sight may have deteriorated, the optometrist may also pick up on other health problems. An eye exam provides accurate assessment of your ability to see and the health of your eyes but also gives an insight into your general health. We do this with the state of the art technology that now exists within the field of optometry.
The NHS provides very limited funding for high street eyecare. An NHS eye test is free for those who are eligible, but the requirements were set 26 years ago. At Richard Morwood Optometrist we like to supplement the basic NHS eye exam to bring it up to world class level.
