NHS Sight test
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.
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
