From the first enquiry our eye doctor Dr John Gurney and registered Dispensing Optician Mr Mark Raggatt FBDO aim to visit each patient within a few weeks. Following the eye examination and visual assessment, Dr Gurney will advise the patient whether a new prescription is required, or if a referral to their G.P or Hospital is recommended. If spectacles are required Mark will carry out the dispensing . We aim to deliver any spectacles back to the patient within two weeks, where our Dispensing Optician will carry out a fitting and answer any questions.

The eye examination and visit is FREE to all over 60 under the NHS, and people receiving benefits such as Income Support and Guaranteed Pension Credit. In the unlikely event that you are not entitled to an NHS eye test we will still be able to visit you for an eye examination privately.

A range of Spectacles are also available that come FREE with an NHS optical voucher for any person who receives benefits.8
