Children's eye care
We can examine your child’s eyes from a very early age. Most children are able to recognize pictures by the age of 3 and we would be able to test their vision by using pictures or matching shapes. If you feel that a child has an eye problem do not wait, sooner is better then later as many eye problems need treating at a young age.
Contact lens care
We offer full contact lens consultations and fitting or simply aftercare whichever is your need. We stock the latest brands of lenses to suit all budgets, or something different why not try coloured lenses.
