If you are worried about a sudden change to your vision, are experiencing flashes or floaters, red, painful or itchy eyes then we can help.
We offer emergency eyecare appointments to diagnose and treat minor eye conditions. Contact us if you are concerned about any symptom and we will arrange to see you as soon as possible.
We recognise that the round trip to our local hospitals can be a difficult journey for some.
This is why Cranmers Optometrists provide eye health monitoring schemes for conditions such as ocular hypertension and cataract post-operative care on behalf of our local hospitals.
Visit us for monitoring and after care appointments in liaison with your health care provider for greater peace of mind.
DRY EYE CLINIC
To ease the discomfort associated with dry eye syndrome and blepharitis, we can offer state-of-the-art BlephEx Treatments.
Blephex is an absorbent disposable micro-sponge soaked in an antimicrobial solution and spun along the eyelids. The spinning mechanism targets the biofilm and removes the debris. A new micro-sponge is used for each eyelid to avoid cross-contamination.
These treatments are a 15 minute appointment and cost £50.
BlephEx has been nominated for optical product of the year at our annual industry awards
LOW VISION THERAPY
This is a free service, available to those who struggle with everyday tasks such as reading letters, newspapers etc. Visual aids can be provided on free loan.
Cranmer’s have introduced a pioneering service to offer specialist support to patients who are undergoing or already have a diagnosis of a debilitating eye condition.
Following reports in the optical press about the understanding and psychological effects of sight loss, we offer patients who are diagnosed with a degenerative eye condition free access to a specialist clinic run within the practice.This enables them to talk through the potential effects that such a diagnosis can have on their day to day lives, practical solutions for day to day living and if appropriate onward referrals to other support networks.
This means that patients are given the full professional support they need outside of an eye examination to fully understand how visual problems will impact on their lives.
