• The importance of getting a sight test

    • eye test Belfast

      Having your eyes tested every 6 months is very important. Why? One reason is because your eye sight may have deteriorated. But our 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. Furthermore, it gives an insight into your general health. At Richard Morwood Optometrist, we test your eyes with the state of the art technology, like the Zeiss iProfiler and optomap.

      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. We like to supplement the basic NHS eye exam to bring it up to world class level. So although you can get a free eye test anywhere, it pays to look after one of your most important senses: your eye sight.
