Oracle Opticians We're proud to stock excellent quality designer frames, including some you won't find anywhere else in the area. The lenses in your glasses should be customised to your requirements, and as an independent optician we can make that happen. We're dedicated to looking after your eye health, and can provide additional services to test for and treat a variety of eye conditions.

It's essential that children attend regular eye exams from a young age, or you could be putting both their education and their vision at risk. Hi - my name is Arif Ali, and I'm not only the owner of Oracle Opticians, but the main person you'll be dealing with throughout your time with us in practice. I'll be responsible for testing your eyes and ensuring you leave with the perfect eyewear for you - should you need it - and that's the way I like it.

I qualified in 2005 from Bradford University, and since then I have made a determined effort to gain experience across all sectors of optics so that I can recreate the best ideas in Oracle Opticians today.

In 2008, our current owner Arif joined the service. Michael and Arif worked so well together that when Michael retired in 2013, he asked Arif to take over the running of Oracle Opticians. The practice has been open for over 35 years. We are proud to have built up genuine, long-lasting relationships with our current loyal patients, many of whom have been visiting us for years.

While this is undoubtedly a major part of the assessment, your exam also allows us to fully check your eye health and ensure there are no early signs of any problems. During your eye test, you will be asked to complete a number of exercises. These will include some you might already be familiar with, such as reading different sized letters off a chart or screen on the wall, and testing different lenses to see if they make text harder or easier to read.

From making sure they have their infancy vaccinations to marking their height on the wall every birthday, you will naturally do everything you can to ensure they are happy and developing as they should. Despite popular belief, children don't have to be able to read in order to have their first eye test - we can test children as young as one year old using a combination of shapes and pictures to track their eye movement.

And as with any other accessory you buy for yourself, you want to make sure that it's a good quality, attractive design and reflects your own style and personality. It's for that reason that we have made sure we stock a fantastic selection of some of the best frames available, including fabulous designer options. When you browse our frame displays here at Oracle Opticians, we're sure you'll find something to suit you - whatever your style or personal preferences.

In the short term, you can develop a condition known as photokeratitis. This is a form of sunburn for your eyes, causing redness, irritation and a feeling of grittiness in the eyes. Fortunately it is normally temporary, but can be very painful while it lasts. In the longer term, continually exposing your eyes to intense sunlight without protection increases your risk of developing conditions like macular degeneration and cataracts.

But it should really be the other way round - after all, it's the lenses that will be responsible for improving your visual clarity and comfort! Here at Oracle Opticians, we appreciate that everyone has different lifestyles, hobbies and preferences, and so we believe that your eyewear should not only meet your needs but complement them too. There are several different lens types and coatings available for you to consider; for example, if you work with computers you might benefit from specialised office lenses, or a blue light coating.

Whether you've been wearing glasses for years, or have only recently needed a prescription, contact lenses could be the convenient and comfortable eyewear option you've been looking for. Many people are wary of contact lenses because of their need to be placed directly on the eyeball. However, the process of inserting and removing them becomes second nature very quickly, and you can rest assured that our team will give you a full tutorial on how to use and care for your lenses before you leave us.

read more › You might think that opticians are only here to carry out regular eye examinations, and let you know whether or not you need a new prescription. For any other eye problems, you'd go straight to your GP or the hospital, right? In actual fact, this isn't necessarily the case. Whilst you should certainly head straight to the doctor in an emergency or out-of-hours situation, we can often provide specialist advice and help for a variety of other eye conditions. After all, that's what we're trained to do!
