The Eye Examination
With over 170 appointments available every week, you’re guaranteed to find a time that suits you
Your vision is amazing – you use it for approximately 16 hours a day every day and without it, you would struggle to carry out the vast majority of your daily tasks. Additionally, research suggests that over 80% of perception, learning, cognition and activities are mediated through vision.
At Eye Express, when you visit us for your eye examination, the test will take between 20 and 30 minutes. It will be carried out by one of our expert optometrists and they will be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have.
Whether you are visiting us for a private or NHS eye examination, you can rest assured you will receive the highest quality experience. You don’t even have to make an appointment. We offer 170 appointments each week, and therefore often have more than enough availability for walk-ins.
Before you have your eyes examined you will be asked a number of non-invasive questions regarding any problems you are having with your vision, your lifestyle and hobbies and any family medical history. The answers you provide us will simply enable us to tailor an eye examination to meet all of your needs.
During your eye examination our optometrist will carry out a series of tests and procedures to determine the health of your eyes. You will have:
- Your field vision checked
- Your standard vision – both with and without any existing eyewear – measured
- Your suitability for a prescription checked using a combination of instruments and lenses
- Your prescription refined using lenses to establish which provide you with the best standard of vision
Rest assured, your experience at Eye Express does not end with an examination. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are always on hand to advise you about the various ways in which our products can meet your optical needs. This includes a very broad range of spectacles, contact lenses and sunglasses.
Please note: We also provide eye tests for patients with glaucoma and diabetes, and FREE eye examinations –at our Great Barr branch - with the purchase of eyewear from our practice.
