We at Robert Glass Opticians are happy to answer any questions that you may have about your eye health, spectacles or contact lenses. Contact us via practice email or phone numbers.

How Often Should I Have an Eye Test?

We recommend everyone should have their eyes tested every two years. Some eye problems are much easier to treat if caught in their early stages, and we can also test for other conditions, such as glaucoma. If you have any eye or sight problems you should come and see us as soon as possible. Contact Lens wearers need to come in every year for a check up.

What Does an Eye Test Involve?

We tailor all our eye tests to your individual requirements. We test how well you can see and read at a distance and close up and advise you on the eye correction you may need. We also examine the general health of the eyes and check for eye diseases.

How Much Will An Eye Test Cost?

If you are ineligible for a free eye test, our comprehensive eye examination costs just £25.00.

Can I Wear Contact Lenses?

If you need eye correction it is possible you will be able to wear contact lenses. Please arrange an appointment to discuss whether contact lenses would be a suitable solution for you.

Could Laser Eye Surgery Help Me?

Some problems such as long and short sightedness can be permanently treated with laser surgery. This could mean you won’t need to wear glasses again! Come and talk to us for unbiased, friendly advice.

Can I Get Help with My Payments?

If you are worried about paying for your eyecare please do not hesitate to come and talk to our staff who can advise you on our most economic options for frames and lenses.

10 Good reasons to have an eye examination

  1. You only have one pair of eyes. Once lost, your eyesight may never be replaced.
  2. Unlike your teeth, your eyes do not usually hurt when there is something wrong.
  3. The eye examination can pick up early signs of potentially blinding eye conditions, such as glaucoma.
  4. The earlier a problem is detected the greater the chance of successful treatment. This is particularly true for young children and the elderly.
  5. The eye examination can also detect a number of other underlying health problems, such as high blood pressure or diabetes.
  6. An examination checks whether your eyesight needs correcting with spectacles and determines the best form of correction for your vision.
  7. Good vision means working and playing better and safer – in fact it means a better quality of life.
  8. For young people, good eyesight is vital for learning. An eye examination will detect any problems in sight which may be affecting school performance.
  9. Failing eyesight is often taken for granted as people get older. However, by having an eye examination and remedying problems in eyesight, older people can improve their quality of life significantly.
  10. Poor eyesight is dangerous. Make sure that you meet the legal requirement for driving.
