Standard Eye Test

The best eye test you can get in Frimley

A standard eye test is important for everyone, young and old to check your sight, changes in your vision, detect any underlying health issues or conditions.

Eye sight is the most important sense we have and we perceive up to 80% of all our impressions by way of our sight. With our modern day lifestyle, daily and in some cases excessive use of computers and digital devices means that our eyes are under constant pressure. This can lead to severe eye health issues. Hence, even if you do not wear glasses, we recommend going for a routine eye exam on regular basis. Our eyecare professional will advise you on the frequency of the eye test.

What To Expect During A Standard Eye Test

Our Standard Eye Test will take approximately 45 minutes and typically includes:

Eyes are often neglected unless you wear glasses. We recommend that you should go for regular eye exams even if you don't wear glasses. This is how you can catch early signs of health issues.
