Frequently Asked Questions

With us, eye tests are entirely free.

It takes around 20 minutes (for both single vision and varifocal glasses), so you could even book one during your lunch break?

It's a comprehensive eye health screening for non symptomatic eye disease — not just an assessment of your vision — completed using state-of-the-art technology.

NB: this is not for contact lens prescriptions or related problems.

The ultimate purpose of an eye test is to assess your eyes for common refractive errors (or vision conditions), including:

  • Myopia: Difficulty in seeing objects at a distance

  • Hyperopia: Difficulty in seeing objects up close

  • Astigmatism: Distorted vision due to irregular curvature of the cornea

  • Presbyopia: Difficulty reading at arm's length

Once we have completed the test we will advise on how much correction is needed in your lenses. These corrections are represented by a series of numbers which make up your prescription.

We recommend having your eyes tested every two years, even if they feel 100%. Our eyes change with time, so it’s important you know what’s going on with yours.

No, we don't offer contact lens eye tests or fittings.
