J Oliver Radley Opticians Every aspect of the service from J Oliver Radley is top quality. Very friendly reception, thorough and professional eye testing, an extensive range of lens and frames to suit every budget, and an excellent fitting service. Customer service and after-sales support is second-to-none. I've lost count of the number of times I've accidentally damaged my glasses over the years, and each time James has happily made minor (and some not-so-minor) repairs free of charge.

One aspect I hadn't fully appreciated until today is how sophisticated their state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment is. The Optometrist identified a potentially serious problem during my routine eye test 2 days ago, and immediately advised referral to an eye specialist. His initial diagnosis was today confirmed by a consultant ophthalmologist in a top private hospital - after having taken over 40 minutes to obtain lower resolution scans than those produced in a fraction of that on J Oliver Radley equipment.

I wouldn't go anywhere else, and can thoroughly recommend James and his expert team for their superb care and professional service.

If cataracts are impairing your vision then this can be treated with a simple operation to replace the cloudy lens inside your eye with an artificial lens. Often cataracts affect both eyes and surgery is completed first for one eye and then for the other eye if required. Referral for pre-op Assessment: We can refer you to an Ophthalmologist for a pre-op assessment, under the NHS if eligible or privately.

read more › Avoid pollen as much as possible by closing windows and keeping surfaces clear with a damp duster. Visit your Optometrist or Pharmacist for advice and to get medicated eye drops to help alleviate the itching and swelling. If you wear contact lenses, remember to check if you can use the drops while your lenses are in. When the pollen count is very high it can be more comfortable to wear your spectacles rather than your contact lenses. You may feel more comfortable by avoiding wearing contact lenses in hot, dry or dusty conditions or when you are gardening, particularly when mowing the lawn, as grass particles and pollen can become stuck behind the lens and cause discomfort.

For those who are already drivers, you always need to be able to see properly to be legally allowed to drive. Around half of UK drivers don't realise that to drive legally their vision must keep meeting the government's minimum Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) standard. The DVLA recommends that drivers take steps to meet the legal minimum standards.

read more › With Tom Davies Bespoke you have the opportunity to own a frame uniquely tailored to your facial measurements and references. Changing the base curve on the frame is one of the best things you can do if you have a high prescription. For example, if you have a high minus prescription, changing the frame's base curve to 300 is going to improve the cosmetic appearance dramatically and can also improve optical clarity. It also improves the stability of the frame. Sometimes a high prescription can force the frame to flatten if it's been adjusted during lens mounting.
