NHS funded eye tests

Looking after your eyesight is imperative to enjoying life to the full. If vision problems worsen and go undiagnosed this could go on to affect other aspects of your health. The value of the eye examination has been recognised by the Department of Health by its funding of free NHS eye tests. Check your eligibility here.

Can I wear contact lenses?

We fit all types of contact lenses from daily disposable, monthly disposable, 24 hour wear lenses, multi-focal or rigid. Modern day contact lenses are generally very comfortable to wear and entirely compatible with the eye. As a result, there are very few complications of contact lens wear and if directions are followed properly, they are inherently safe to wear, and there are a variety of lenses to suit almost everyone!

Care for your eyes

Protecting your eyesight is one of the most important things you can do to help maintain your quality of life. Some type of sight-threatening eye problem affects one in six adults age 45 and older, and the risk for vision loss only increases with age. Learn more by clicking the link above.

  • The family have been going to this local, independent optometrist for some years now. The welcome is always friendly and the service excellent. Our optometrist is very thorough and always reassures the children. The choice of glasses is very extensive, particularly if you want something a bit different and good value. Also I had a lump on my eye and had made an appointment with my doctor who couldn't fit me in for 3 weeks. On the off-chance I popped into here and the optometrist immediately looked at it and diagnosed the problem, top service. Would highly recommend, far superior service to high street chains - I should know as I have to take my mother to her's who are little more than sales people.

  • From the first time I went into the shop in Hebden I was made to feel so welcome, the staff are really friendly and gave me honest opinions on the glasses I tried on, I went in on my own and was a bit worried that no matter which frames I tried on I'd be told that they were lovely on me....but the staff were honest and patient with me while I tried on almost every pair in the shop and we had a real laugh doing so.They called to remind me of my appointments, and when my glasses arrived. Both members of staff were professional, informative and friendly and I immediately felt comfortable and in good hands. All my friends think my new glasses are fabulous! They showed me the ins and outs (literally) of the dark art of contact lenses, demonstrating on themselves the best way to put them in and take them back out again. I couldn't have asked for a better service and now consider myself a loyal customer. I wont be going back to any of the big chains not only because of the staff but I found the prices competitive too. Shop local! You wont get this level of customer care anywhere else.
