Highlights

read more › Any condition that affects the nerve of the eye or the brain like strokes or trauma can result in a loss of areas of peripheral vision. This is clearly a dangerous thing for drivers or even pedestrians crossing the road if, for example, the left side of both eyes is missing. Therefore, we do carry out routine check on most people over 40 and others who are potentially at risk of loss of side vision. The front of the eye may look like a clear window and although it is just half a millimetre thick it has in fact many layers which are impossible to see with the naked eye.

We have always offered the best in eyecare, and now we want to extend our service to your hearing too. The hearing aids are unnoticeable and the quality of hearing is so much better than with any of the hearing aids I've had before - in all environments. I am delighted with them. Just like to say how pleased I am with the service and the quality of the product recommended, all working very well, plus the cost was 20% cheaper that cost the device recommend by another independent supplier.

If you're a new patient, however, we will have to undergo an eye exam to determine your prescription, unless you have an in-date, valid prescription from a qualified practitioner. We receive many patients who are unsure about their eye health. If you feel like you need more information regarding your eye examination, glasses, contact lenses or prescription please don't hesitate to get in touch with our practice.

Follow these simple steps for maintaining healthy eyes well into your golden years. You might think your vision is fine or that your eyes are healthy, but visiting your eye care professional for a comprehensive dilated eye exam is the only way to really be sure. When it comes to common vision problems, some people don't realise they could see better with glasses or contact lenses.

read more › In short, the definition of Hypermetropia (long sightedness) is where the eye is shorter than normal or the cornea is too flat, meaning that light rays focus behind the retina. Light rays from close objects such as pages of a book cannot be focused on clearly by the retina. Someone with hypermetropic eyes may find their vision is blurred when looking at objects near to them, and for vision to be clearer when looking at far away objects. Placing a plus powered (convex) lens in front of a hypermetropic eye allows the image to be moved forward allowing for correct focus on the retina.

read more › When we are young, the lens in the eye can change its shape allowing us to focus on near objects. This condition is defined as presbyopia and is a normal part of ageing. Presbyopia is usually first noticed by difficulties reading in low light. Often, you may find it will take longer for eyes to refocus from reading to distance and from distance to reading. The distance of reading dictates which power you would require. For example, looking at a computer screen will require a different power for reading a book.

read more › Glaucoma is the name for a group of eye conditions which damage the optic nerve. This nerve carries information from the light sensitive layer in your eye, the retina, to the brain where it is perceived as an image. The retina can be thought of as akin to the 'film' of a camera where light is focused. The information is then sent along the optic nerve. All glaucomas have certain key features in common. These are increased pressure inside the eye, 'cupping' of the optic disc, and loss of the peripheral visual field.

read more › Nystagmus is a classified eye disease where the patient experiences an involuntary movement of the eyes in which they oscillate from side to side, up and down or even in a circular motion. People who have Nystagmus are usually either blind or have very poor vision. Their vision can be considered a lot worse than what some would call short sighted, and their vision is already hampered to a certain extent. There is 'Early Onset Nystagmus' which starts in the first six months of a baby's life, which can also be called infantile or 'Congenital Nystagmus'.

read more › Eye floaters are extremely common and are sometimes associated with flashing lights in the eye, especially when they first appear. When they first appear, they normally affect one eye, but may affect both eyes at the same time. In fact, they're so common, that approximately two thirds of the population will have eye floaters by the time they are in their mid sixties! However, they can occur at any age. The commonest cause of floaters is called 'vitreous detachment'. The main section of the eyeball is filled with a special gel known as 'the vitreous'.

read more › Blepharitis refers to inflammation of the eyelid margins. There are two broad categories of the condition - Anterior Blepharitis and Posterior Blepharitis. Anterior Blepharitis affects the front part of the eyelid margin, near the roots of the eyelashes. It is commonly caused by bacteria that normally lives on our skin and produces an irritate toxin that causes inflammation. The lid margin often looks 'crusty' and when seen under a microscope, the appearance can be similar to dandruff. Anterior Blepharitis can cause the eyelids to become red, itchy and sometimes slightly swollen too.
