Adult Eye Tests
Committed to excellence in eye care
Here at Focus Medical Eye Centre we are committed to providing a comprehensive and personal eye care service with our adult eye tests. Our specialist practitioners use the latest technology. For this we will ensure that we give you the most thorough eye health examination possible. We also offer different levels of eye examination to suit the needs of our patients.
The standard NHS adult eye tests cover an eye health check along with vision assessment and spectacle prescribing. Focus Medical Eye Centre provide a comfortable 30 minute examination addressing any concerns and symptoms. We also provide visual field testing and other supplementary tests as required. As well as onward specialist referral if necessary.
Investing in the latest technology
Our enhanced examination includes Optomap ultra-widefield retinal imaging. This technology takes your eye examination to a new level. We can view over 80% of your retina compared to 15-20% achievable with traditional methods. Your basic NHS examination for adult eye tests is only funded to actually check 15-20% of the retina. The condition of the retina mirrors the health of the body and can indicate signs of other diseases such as Diabetes and Hypertension. An ultra-widefield scan of the retina can detect small holes or tears. These could otherwise lead to full retinal detachment without treatment. Which is why our eye care professionals strongly recommend an Optomap examination. The procedure is painless and there are no drops required. So you can drive afterwards and the results are instant.
Enhanced Eye Examinations
Our Enhanced Ultimate eye examination features the latest technology called an OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography). An OCT takes a 3D cross sectional scan of the different layers of the retina and optic nerve similar to an MRI scan. By examining these underlying structures, we can see perhaps for the first time, what is going on under the retina. And therefore totally assess your optic nerve health. 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.
For the very best examination we offer the Enhanced Ultimate Examination. This combines the technologies of Optomap and OCT to provide the most thorough examination of the eye possible. We are happy to discuss which type of adult eye tests and eye examination will be best suited for your needs prior to and during your eye examination.
What our customers are saying
I was concerned that something wasn’t right with my vision. Amanda saw me the same day of my concern, conducted some scans and found the problem with my eyes immediately. She referred me to the Eye Department at Eastbourne DGH without fail and I had an appointment the following Monday where the consultant wanted to run some more tests. I saw another consultant three days later and had laser eye surgery that day for a problem where I could have lost my sight. I cannot recommend Focus Medical Eye Centre highly enough, from the receptionists to the opticians; nothing was too much trouble. I feel so fortunate to have these wonderful people looking after me and my eyes.
With grateful thanks
