Here at Focus Medical Eye Centre we are committed to providing a comprehensive and personal eye care service. We invest in the latest technology to ensure we give you the most thorough eye health examination possible. We offer 4 levels of eye examination to suit the needs of our patients.
The standard NHS test covers an eye health check along with vision assessment and spectacle prescribing. We provide a comfortable 30 minute examination addressing any concerns and symptoms. We also provide visual field testing and other supplementary tests as required and onward specialist referral if necessary.
Our enhanced examination also includes Optomap ultra-widefield retinal imaging. This technology takes your eye examination to a new level by viewing over 80% of your retina compared to 15-20% achievable with traditional methods. The basic NHS examination is only funded to check 15-20% of the retina. The condition of the retina mirrors the health of the body and can indicate signs of other diseases such as Diabetes and Hypertension. Furthermore, an ultra-widefield scan of the retina can detect small holes or tears which otherwise can lead to full retinal detachment without treatment. This is why our eye care professionals strongly recommend an Optomap examination. The procedure is painless,there are no drops required so you can drive afterwards and the results are instant.

Our Enhanced Ultimate eye examination features the latest technology called an OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography). An OCT takes a 3D cross sectional scan of the different layers of the retina and optic nerve similar to an MRI scan. By examining these underlying structures, we can see perhaps for the first time, what is going on under the retina and assess optic nerve health. We may pick up problems within your eye that could not be easily noticed before, even by you. This helps us with detection of a number of eye health issues at a much earlier stage, in particular Macula Degeneration and Glaucoma. This technology also allows us to monitor progression objectively.
For the very best examination we offer the Enhanced Ultimate Examination. This combines the technologies of Optomap and OCT to provide the most thorough examination of the eye possible.
