Bespoke Eye Tests
Here at Focus Medical Eye Centre we are committed to providing a comprehensive and personal eye care service. Our team of specialist practitioners use to the latest technology. We ensure that we give you the most thorough eye health examination possible. Our Adult eye examinations include all diagnostic scanning as standard in a comfortable 45 minute appointment. This allows us the time to thoroughly examine your eyes including spectacle prescribing and dispensing advice. We are proud to look after your eyes to the best of our ability and tailor care to your individual needs.
We offer an innovative eye care plan to look after all your eye care needs whenever you need to be seen for a small monthly fee of £8.95
We no longer offer a basic NHS sight test as this only covers a minimum standard of care with many restrictions imposed limiting our ability to fully look after your eyes.
A Pay as You Go Option is available for eye examinations if this suits you better. An Adult eye examination including Optomap wide field retinal imaging and OCT scanning is £85.00, and a young persons eye examination ( Under 21’s) including Optomap wide field retinal imaging is £45.00

What is OCT?
Our latest technology is the OCT scanner. Which takes a 3D cross sectional scan of the different layers of the retina and optic nerve. It is similar to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or Computer Aided Tomography (CAT) 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. With our bespoke eye tests, 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.
What is Optomap?
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. It 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.
What our customers are saying
Superb service received once again from Focus Medical. I have a recurring eye problem that usually means a long drawn out process to get seen by the NHS. Twice now I have been seen the same day by Anthony, had a confirmation diagnosis, supplied with a prescription and begun treatment all within a couple of hours. My time is valuable, too valuable to wait for the NHS so I would absolutely recommend Focus Medical and will continue to use for this particular problem.
