Eye Testing


We Keep Your Eyes Healthy

Making sure your eyes are healthy is of the utmost importance for a number of reasons. Not only does it ensure your eyesight is always at the best possible level it can be, it can also highlight underlying health issues such as Diabetes, high/low blood pressure and raised cholesterol. That as-well as being an early indicator of more serious illness such as certain types of Cancer, where early detection can be essential.

Our opticians at Premier Eye Care are some of the most highly trained you will find in your area, and with their warm attitude and personable nature they build relationships to last. Being on first name terms is frequent amongst our customers and is how we like it. We don't see this as a one off service, although we can cater for that, we see it as the same relationship you have with your doctor or dentist - and equally as important.

The number of your local practice is on top of the page and we would welcome a call from you, or alternatively fill in our contact form and receive a call back. We look forward to hearing from you.

Seeing beneath the surface is essential to the health of your eyes.

3D OCT screening diagnoses potentially serious conditions that can affect your eyesight and your overall well-being.


What is OCT?

OCT – Ocular Coherence Tomography – is an advance eye scan for people of ages. Similar to ultrasound, OCT uses light rather than sound waves to illustrate the different layers that make up the back of your eye. The OCT machine captures both a fundus photograph and a cross-sectional scan of the back of the eye at the same time.

What does OCT cost?

There may be an additional charge for the OCT scan, but the benefits are obvious. So you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your eyes are in great condition.
