The Cameron Beaumont Eyecare Plan is a scheme that offers the very best in eyecare. It enables us to use advanced machinery such as Ocular Coherence Tomography and Optomap retinal scanning to detect eye disease as early as possible (see the video above or contact us for more information). Included in the plan are at least 2 scheduled appointments a year with unlimited appointments for emergencies, queries and prescription checks. Up to 20% discount off products.
Routine examinations are performed six monthly or more frequently if there is something we are monitoring, and you can be seen as often as necessary for any concerns regarding your vision without extra charge. Much of the equipment involved is rarely available in opticians practices and this gives our patients the very highest standard of eyecare. The tests involved bring reassurance and peace of mind to you that everything is being done to ensure that your eyes are in the best of health.
It is recommended that children have an eye examination by the time they start school, or earlier if you think there may be a problem. Whilst sight checks can be carried out by GPs or health visitors or even school nurses these checks are not as comprehensive as a full eye examination carried out by an optometrist. There are many different ways of assessing a child’s vision so do not worry if they are unable to read or have a poor attention span.
Children up to the age of 16 (or 19 if in full time education) are entitled to a NHS eye examination.
Contact lenses are a very popular and safe form of eye correction today. We are a Centre of Excellence for Johnson and Johnson Acuvue products and we have an wide range of contact lenses to suit everyone’s needs. Whether you have a high prescription, need help with reading or just for sporting, cosmetic or social activities, there will be a contact lens that is right for you.
Contrary to popular belief age isn’t a barrier to contact lens wear. We have patients as young as 8 and as old as 80 wearing contact lenses.
Dyslexia and Visual Stress (Colorimetry and Coloured Overlays)
Patients who suffer from reading difficulties associated with these conditions may benefit from an assessment with coloured overlays or lenses. These have been found to aid people with reading difficulties and allow the signal from the eye to the brain to become ‘unscrambled’ and can significantly improve the patients’ comfort and reading ability.
