Because of Covid 19 we are providing essential or emergency care. Rather than our comprehensive range of screening packages  we will be solely problem solving and examinations will only be delivered to resolve the presenting problem and not designed to detect a range conditions early. 



In these extra ordinary times we intend to provide these services  on demand and without recourse to NHS or private funding. So you will not be charged. Whether you are our patient or wish to join us due to your presenting need or have been asked to attend our practice by NHS 111 or your health provider including GP. 


We will first take your details and an outline of your history and presenting problem over the phone. Our Specialist Optometrist  will then call you and discuss your condition with you. If he wishes to see you, you will need to be covid symptom free. He will, during your examiantion be wearing the apropriate personal protective equipment and we have already a breath screen attached to our Slit lamp. We would ask that where ever possible, you are the only one who attends the appointment. If you need to have someone with you, please let us know at the time so we can make additional arrangments for social distancing.







Choose from our range of Eye Care Packages

Not all Opticians are the same.


All eye examinations are not the same:   Whilst there are  procedures  that all sight tests must  include (that’s a legal requirement), the individual conducting the test, their equipment , the time spent, as well as the attitudes expressed  are all going to be different, dependent on where and who you see.


McShaw Optometrists  believe in offering you the best possible eye care we can deliver and that means extending  the choices you have:-


We combine an enviable range of   leading equipment  (that many hospitals would like to have), along with precious time needed to consider and analyse results. Put this together with an outstanding optometrist, with  a proven record in communicating and you have not just an eye examiantion, but an ocular tour.


The  standard sight test                                                         £42.00


The NHS funded or Standard sight test is just that. It checks your  sight  now.  The specified tests  attempt to pick up conditions based on a combination of your responses and the  results from different procedures,  done with a range of equipment with varying degrees of reliability.  It is designed to pick  up conditions such  a glaucoma and cataracts  as they  develop and affect your vision. Great for those who are  healthy and /or consider themselves to be at low risk of conditions.  

Dilation and visual feilds are conducted when indicated and not as standard.                                                              


Extending the sight test to selected screening.


 For those who sometimes want a   more detailed specific examination, using   an instrument that is  the latest technology, with known reliability, then the selected screening option  might be for you,  This is good for those looking  and recording results  in  a particular area , or repeating  a test (which is not funded by the NHS or standard eye examination). 


If you would like a specific area monitored more closely, or  in greater detail then this is for you.
