Andrew Keirl Opticians Andrew Keirl is both an Optometrist and a Dispensing Optician and has been working in optics for longer than he cares to remember. His career actually started way back in 1979 as a student Dispensing Optician in Somerset and he often recalls the fact that his first job was to sweep the pavement outside the practice! Following qualification as a Dispensing Optician he worked as a practice manager before qualifying as an Optometrist.

For many years Andrew was a Senior Lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge teaching optometry and ophthalmic dispensing to undergraduate students. Andrew is the proprietor of Andrew Keirl Opticians in Liskeard and is passionate about eyecare and is proud to be an independent Optician. Andrew's practice is part of the Peninsula Optometrists Community Glaucoma shared-care scheme which provides convenient, local care to patients with stable glaucoma.

He is secretary of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Optical Committee and has also worked as a Low Vision Practitioner at the Royal Eye Infirmary in Plymouth.

We are proud to boast some of the latest optometry equipment within the practice and are often asked by patients what the kit does. So here's a brief explanation of what some of the equipment does along with a brief overview of some of the services offered by Andrew Keirl Opticians in Liskeard. We are more than happy to offer a guided tour of the equipment during a consultation. In the early diagnosis of many vision problems, high resolution digital retinal imaging provides an invaluable tool, enabling us to record and later compare images of each retina at follow up visits.

An eye examination determines whether your eyesight would benefit from correction with spectacles and determines the best form of correction for your vision and lifestyle. Failing eyesight is often taken for granted as people get older. This is not always the case as appropriate spectacles along with good lighting can significantly improve the quality of life for an older person.

All children should therefore have a sight test before they start school. At Andrew Keirl Opticians in Liskeard we can perform a useful sight test on children from the age of about two years although we have examined children who are only six months old! Children do not have to be able to read letters in order to have an eye examination as Optometrists often use pictures instead of letters to assess a child's vision.
