Eye examinations are important
It’s important to have an eye examination on a regular basis, not only to ensure that vision is satisfactory, but also to check the health of the eyes. Here at Cameron Beaumont we give all our clients a thorough 'tailor-made' examination by taking full details of any family history, general health issues, previous ocular conditions and lifestyle requirements. We allow you the time to discuss any issues about your eyes and take time to explain the tests and results fully so that you leave satisfied and with the best possible advice. We also offer eye examinations under the NHS so please contact us to check eligibility.
Optomap Retinal Scan
The Optomap Retinal Scan gives us the most extensive view of your retina (the back of the eye) technology permits. This examination helps us check the health of your retina and detect early signs of many conditions which, if left untreated, can affect your sight. In addition, the retina is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means that signs of some non-eye diseases (e.g. stroke, heart disease and diabetes) can also be viewed. Early detection helps save sight and lives.
Conventional photos of the retina only capture 15% of the retinal surface whereas the Optomap can capture up to 80% without the need for any eye drops to dilate the pupils. Optomap is suitable for all ages – from children to adults (even if cataracts are present). The procedure is very quick, simple and nothing touches your eye at any time; the push of a button generates an electronic image of your retina, which we can then instantly examine to ensure the retina is normal and healthy. Optomap allows you to see what we see in a unique 3D sequence and the image will then be kept for comparison at your next visit. We believe the Optomap Retinal Scan is one of the most significant advances in eye care we have seen, and we recommend that all our patients make this part of their regular eye examination.
Children's eye examinations
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 an 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 a 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. Please contact the practice for more information.
We take eyewear very seriously at Cameron Beaumont. We source a wide selection of frames from all over the world and travel regularly to trade shows to try and find the best products and something a little bit different! As we regularly update our stock and suppliers please contact us if you are looking for something specific. Our lenses predominantly are supplied by Rodenstock, a company with excellent attention to detail and an unwavering quest to give the best vision.
Eyewear styling consultation
Do you struggle knowing which frames suit you or which spectacles will fit correctly? Do you stick with the same old style, feeling comfortable with what you know, rather than trying the latest trends and styles? It can be a minefield looking at the range of choices available and our FREE styling consultation is an opportunity to discover the right style of eyewear you can feel confident in, in a no pressure, relaxed environment with a fully qualified dispensing optician. Just fill in the form on the contact page asking for a free consultation or call us to register your interest. A dispensing optician will then call you back to discuss your requirements and explain the process, then book you in if you like what you hear! Take the stress out of choosing new glasses and contact us today.
The importance of a good UV blocking pair of sunglasses cannot be underestimated in protecting the health of your eyes as well as the physical and cosmetic benefits they provide. Blocking the sun’s harmful UV rays has been proved to reduce the risk of cataract and macular degeneration. Cameron Beaumont carries a wide range of sunglasses from designer to sports, available with or without prescription lenses.
