An eye examination or eye test can detect general health problems as well as eye related problems. Everyone should have there eye health checked at least every 2 years.
At my practice , every eye test and procedure is carried out thoroughly and professionally by myself and patients are never rushed.
All patients are entitled to a FREE NHS funded eye test in Scotland and all my examinations are carried out in a thoroughly professional manner above and beyond the minimum standards required by the NHS audit. All my equipment is also NHS audited to their specific standards, so you can be sure of a detailed examination including RETINAL PHOTOGRAPHS.
An eye examination can detect amongst other things : high blood pressure, high cholesterol , diabetes , cancer , multiple sclerosis , rhumatoid arthritis...
It will also show eye conditions such as cataract , glaucoma , macular degeneration and many others.
If you feel you have been part of "conveyor belt" practice in the past where you are just another customer, you should come and see myself where you will be treated as an individual every time!
