Sight tests and appointments

When you visit Eyes Open Opticians for your eye examination you can look forward to a warm welcome from a member of our friendly team. We allow 30 minutes for eye exams so that we can take our time ensuring your eyes are as healthy as possible.

Your eyes will be examined by one of our experienced opticians using some of the most advanced technology and equipment.

Many people think that a sight test is just about checking whether your vision needs correcting with glasses or contact lenses, but there are other important reasons to have a regular sight test. A sight test is a vital check on the health of the eyes and includes the detection of eye conditions.
