NHS EYE TEST
At Cranmers, our opticians offers up to 50% more time with you to fully assess your needs, so you will never feel rushed. You will also be able to choose to see the same optician each time you visit us.
We believe that the level of technology available to us today far exceeds the standards that were set to conduct a NHS sight test in 1989. This NHS standard has not altered during this time.
We would like to look at your eyes in 3D with an OCT scan and conduct hospital standard procedure tests, which will give us a much greater understanding of your ocular health.
WHAT IS AN OCT 3D SCAN?
OCT allows us to see beneath the surface of the back of your eye (the retina), enabling us to detect abnormalities at an incredibly early stage. This advanced scan is used in most hospital Ophthalmology departments.
OCT enables us to look at your eyes in a unique way, it’s 3D, something we can’t achieve with our standard instruments. This will give you peace of mind that we are looking at your eyes with the most advanced, up to date equipment in optometry today.
The scan is quick and painless and we look at and discuss the images with you, storing them in your own personal file, enabling us to compare images of your ocular health each time you visit us.
If a problem is detected, you can rest assured it will be at its earliest stages, giving you the best chance to have sight saving treatment when it is at its most effective.
OCT has aided us to detect and diagnose all kinds of eye disease such as Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy, Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), Retinal Detachments and a great deal more.
