We are proud to deliver quality eye tests in Watchet for our NHS and private patients.

 

We recommend having your eyes tested regularly. The benefits of an eye examination are that it can help to identify vision problems early on and it can also help to catch any potential health problems with the eyes.

We offer a quality service to all our patients, who are treated as individuals by our experienced team.

We are excited to bring this incredible piece of eyecare technology to Watchet to improve the quality of the eye examinations we can offer.

 

Optical Coherence Tomography, or ‘OCT’, helps us to view the health of your eyes in greater detail, by allowing us to see what’s going on beneath the surface of the eye. An OCT provides us with a 3D image of the layers inside of your eye and can help indicate the early signs of an eye health condition like glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration before you have any symptoms.

An OCT scan as part of your eye examination incurs an additional cost. Please speak to our friendly team for more information about this service and to make an appointment.
