When should children first have their eyes tested?

Please call us should you have any queries.

I can see fine, do I actually need to have a Sight Test?

Yes you do!
Having your eyes examined is not just assessing how  well you can see. The examination involves checking the general health of your eyes, your peripheral vision, your eye pressures and is a chance for you to discuss any concerns or questions you may have with your Optometrist.

Can you fix my broken glasses?

Yes, broken glasses can be repaired and soldered on site. If for any reason we cannot, then we will send them to a local company that can. We can also source parts if there is something that needs replacing as opposed to repairing.

All glasses that are repaired are done so at the owner's risk.
