Incredibly thorough eye care

Our desire to provide the best possible eye care means we now recommend a yearly Enhanced Eye Examination for all our clients. The Enhanced Examination takes around 45 minutes and allows the Optometrist to give your eyes an incredibly thorough examination, using state-of-the-art technology. This includes capturing amazing high resolution 3D images with our OCT 3D Retinal Scanner; looking below the surface of the retina and measuring your retinal nerve tissue with incredible accuracy.

This can help us pick up tiny changes in the health of your eyes years before you become aware of any problems with your vision, which is why we feel it’s so important.

If the Enhanced Eye Examination isn’t for you we can still provide a great standard of care with our Basic Eye Exam, and if you’d like something in between you can elect to upgrade this with retinal or anterior eye photographs (included as a standard part of the Enhanced Eye Examination).

Glasses and Contact Lenses

Should you need any vision correction our Optometrists and Dispensing Opticians will take the time to ensure they get the right frames and lenses, or the best possible contact lenses for you.

I recently took my elderly mother along for an eye test with a Julia. My mother suffers with Macular Degeneration and has lost the sight in one eye. Julia spent an hour with us and explained everything in great detail even though there was nothing new glasses would achieve. We had previously been to a chain opticians who offered no help or advice at all. I have now had my eyes tested by Julia and have purchased new glasses and sunglasses. The help and advice from the rest of the team has been excellent and I am very pleased with my new spectacles. I would highly recommend Carpenters to anyone seeking a friendly and professional service.
