Eye Tests

Everyone should have their eyes tested at least every two years but many people need an eye test more frequently.

We take your eye health very seriously and fully appreciate all the changes that take place from childhood to mature adulthood. We pride ourselves in offering precise sight testing and eye examinations using the latest electronic and digital technology. Everyone having an eye test is allocated a generous time slot so that there is always time to explain the outcomes and answer any questions that may arise.

If your last sight test involved having a cumbersome frame placed on your nose and lenses changed by hand, then you will love what we do. We mainly use the automated Nidek Phoropter system that is explained in this article we wrote for “The Optician” journal. Comfortable and accurate and we can demonstrate how your eyes may have altered easily. The test chart we use is all electronic with real number plates and road signs mimicking the real world!

As you would expect, Harefield Opticians have Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) available to allow precise and early diagnosis of a multitude of eye conditions.  The local eye doctors are very pleased we have this ability to detect eye issues at an early stage: it makes their job easier (saving your sight)!
