Neil and Johnathan are fully qualified and very experienced optometrists and can offer standard NHS eye examinations which are usually free to all UK residents. We will offer both primary and supplementary (interim) examinations for new patients coming for routine check ups through to management of both acute and chronic (longstanding) eye conditions.

We will do our best to keep your eye care local and convenient unless you require a specialist opinion or ophthalmology care.
