Eye Examinations

Kingsbridge Eye Care Group offers both private examinations and NHS sight tests. Eligibility for NHS sight tests depends on your circumstances. If you are unsure about entitlement, please contact our reception team for more information.

Before you see your optometrist, an Optical Assistant will perform screening checks. These may consist of a basic visual field test and a pressure test which blows a gentle puff of air onto your eye from a special machine.

Your optometrist will then ask you a few questions about your eyes. It is important to tell us about any medical conditions or any medication you may be taking as some conditions and medications can affect your eye sight. We will also ask about any hereditary conditions, such as diabetes or glaucoma.

Your optometrist will measure your vision using a Snellen chart. This is the chart that uses a series of letters of all different sizes. You’ll be asked to read from the chart and lenses will be placed in front of your eyes to determine the power of your prescription.Your Optometrist will also ask you a series of questions to choose the right prescription to correct your vision. During the test the optometrist will check that the muscles of your eyes are working as they should and will carry out checks of both the inside and outside of the eye, to ensure that everything appears healthy. Following your Eye examination, the optometrist may recommend further tests:

When the eye test is complete, your optometrist will discuss the results with you and make a recommendation on any corrective lenses you may need, they will also discuss the eye health and answer any questions you may have.
