Enhanced Eye Examination
At Bateman Opticians we believe that whatever your eligibility you should have the most comprehensive examination we can offer.
Our Optometrists recommend the Enhanced Eye Examination for all so we can provide you with the most appropriate care and recommendations by spending an extended time with you, at a cost of just £60. Our charge reflects the high quality of our resources, our well trained and professional staff, the extensive leading edge technology used by our Optometrists and the time required for the comprehensive procedures involved, which includes the latest OCT eye scanning technology.
OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) is a new imaging technique that provides high resolution and cross-sectional images of the eye. In short it gives us opticians a very unique look at the retina and a real accurate representation of your actual eye ball. It is particularly useful in the diagnosis and management of eye conditions such as age related macular degeneration, diabetic macular oedema, macular hole and glaucoma, and is completely non-invasive. Because of the technology, Optical Coherence Tomography allows us to diagnose eye conditions (as mentioned above) much earlier than any standard equipment could detect. This appointment lasts a minimum of 40 minutes.
We will also continue to accept applications from NHS patients, which which will be either be at a cost of just £35 for our Enhanced Eye Examination, or at no charge for a standard NHS eye examination.
