Why have regular eye examinations?

Many people only think to visit their optometrist if they are having difficulty with their vision. However, even if you feel you can see perfectly well, eye examinations are important in order to check the health of your eyes.

Both adults and children should have regular checks, and those who drive should also ensure that they meet the required visual standard.

Children are normally examined in practice from around the age of four. However, if you are concerned there may be a problem with your child's eyes we will be happy to see them at any age.

Many people are entitled to a free NHS eye examination. The following list of exemptions from fees may be helpful, and our staff will be pleased to advise you:

  • All children under 16 years of age
  • All in full-time education under 19 years of age
  • All over 60 years of age
  • Registered blind/partially sighted
  • Diabetes sufferers
  • Glaucoma sufferers
  • Aged 40+ and a direct relative of a glaucoma sufferer
  • Those requiring Complex Prescriptions
  • Those on Income Support/Employment and Support Allowance
  • Those receiving Jobseekers Allowance/Guaranteed Pension Credit
  • Those receiving Tax Credits/HC2 certificates

In addition to the regular tests we also offer a Dry Eye clinic which is proving very successful.

Saxby's is well equipped with state–of–the–art technology so we are able to assess accurately any changes since your last test and pick up emerging medical conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
