Eye Care & Tests
Chellaston Opticians take eye health very seriously, which is why an eye test is the most important service we provide.
Eye examinations are carried out by either David or Bill, our optometrists.
Optometrists recommend that most people should get their eyes tested every two years. However, in some circumstances, they may recommend more frequent sight tests; for example, if you:
- are a child wearing glasses
- have diabetes
- are aged 40 or over and have a family history of glaucoma
- are aged 70 or over
The way a sight test is carried out is governed by law. A sight test will identify:
- what your level of vision is
- whether you need glasses to correct your sight
Your eyes and the area around them will be examined, to look for signs of injury, disease or abnormality.
If you already wear glasses or contact lenses, remember to take them with you to your sight test. You may be asked to wear them during the test.
