Eye Tests at Oakmead Opticians in Chislehurst

Regular eye tests are essential and should form part of your healthcare routine, just like visiting the dentist. We want to ensure that your eye test is individually tailored to you so will always explain our procedures to you and fully discuss the results so that you are completely involved in your own eye care. We do not recommend unnecessary test or products and there are no hidden charges……….

 

Our friendly experienced optometrist, Mark Waine will carefully assess your eyes using a variety of techniques and equipment. We will generally start by asking a few questions to put together a picture of your health and lifestyle. After measuring and updating the prescription, the health of the eye is checked in several different ways.

 

We recognise that some people may be nervous about having their eyes examined so we welcome any questions you may have and will do our best to put you at ease. We believe that you should feel informed and confident at the end of your examination. The eye examination – Oakmead Opticians.
