DVLA assessments

We regularly undertake visual field assessments for the DVLA to ascertain a driver’s visual competence. If you are unsure you meet the requirements please contact us for a detailed assessment.


 

VDU tests

It is not uncommon for the eyes to suffer visual fatigue when spending long periods at a VDU. We are always happy to pass on the latest VDU user recommendations and ensure that you are optimally corrected for this distance.


 

Retinal imaging

Retinal imaging allows us to take a photograph of the back of the eye. It provides a permanent record of the retina and is particularly important in monitoring subtle variations associated with Diabetes and Glaucoma.


 

Lighting advice

The importance of good quality, localised lighting cannot be over emphasised, especially when our natural vision is reduced. We recommend the Daylight Companies range of products and stock their most useful lamps.


 

Dyslexia and Coloured Overlays

It is now recognised that certain forms of visual dyslexia can benefit from the use of coloured overlays.  Please ask for more information or to book an assessment. Find out more


 

Low Vision and Magnifiers

Poor vision can make everday tasks such as reading and TV viewing very difficult. We run a Low Vision Clinic to offer advice and provide much needed help with additional visual aids such as high quality magnifiers. Find out more
