Your Eye Examination

Eye examinations are an important health check that should be carried out at regular intervals, even if you do not wear glasses or contact lenses and do not have any visual problems.  

We are committed to providing the highest standard of eye care and with state-of-the-art technology our caring and professional Optometrists conduct a comprehensive examination, performing an extensive range of tests and procedures to determine the health of your eyes and if any optical prescription is required.  

Every examination is tailored to each patient’s needs and concerns.

Childrens Eye Examination

ALL CHILDREN should have their eyes examined before they start primary school and much earlier if there are any concerns or a family history of eye disorders.  A child’s sight is paramount to their development and education and should be assessed at least every 12 months or more regularly if advised, to ensure visual development.
Your child is never too young to have their eyes examined.

Domiciliary Eye Care (Home Visits)

At Lee Opticians we pride ourselves on caring for all of the community.  If due to medical reasons you are unable to attend one of our practices for an eye examination, we can arrange to perform an eye examination at your home or other residence e.g. nursing home.

A comprehensive examination will be performed ensuring the highest standard of care.  

If you are entitled to a FREE eye examination under the NHS guidelines a domiciliary visit will be performed FREE, but the NHS will ask us to provide a medical reason as to why a home visit is required.
