Eye Examinations

During our comprehensive eye examinations we take the time to explain the procedures carried out and the results found in a clear manner.

Contact Lenses

Our contact lens clinics are designed to cater for every current or potential lens wearer. Our skills in contact lens fitting mean that even if you have been told you can’t wear contact lenses elsewhere we can often fit a pair that suits you.

Myopia management

If you or your child has increasing levels of short sight (myopia) our trained optometrists can now prescribe either contact lenses or spectacles that have been proven to reduce/slow the rate of progression.

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

As part of an upgraded private or NHS eye examination, we can now perform a quick and painless 3D scan of the retinal layers. Especially important in cases of glaucoma, diabetes, AMD or unexplained reduced vision.

Acute Eye Care

Accredited by the local NHS (Somerset ICB) we see and treat patients with acute eye problems. Known as the ACES scheme, this service is funded by the CCG to ensure patients receive high quality, local assessment and treatment of acute eye conditions like red eye, blepharitis and foreign bodies.

Glaucoma Screening Service

We are also accredited for the new NHS Glaucoma screening service. If your optometrist finds you have high eye pressure in your routine eye check we will check these again with different equipment and refer you if necessary.

Glaucoma Monitoring and Treatment Service

We now see patients with glaucoma and high eye pressures for monitoring and management as an alternative to going to Hospital. We have expertise, experience and technology that means Bridgwater has a pioneering new service.
