WITH MEDICAL EYE EXAMINATION
An eye examination at Martin Steels Ltd is more than just an eye test. We do the most comprehensive vision tests so that we can correct your vision to its best potential and we use state-of-the-art equipment to examine the health of your eyes. This means it is also a medical eye check. We are renowned for being professional and friendly at the same time. A common misconception is "I can see perfectly, so my eyes must be fine". Sadly this is far from true.
Our optometrists have a great understanding of the eye health and its relevance to your general health. By having a thorough eye examination, we can detect eye problems such as macular degeneration and glaucoma, earlier. An eye examination is important as a health check as it can sometimes show up general medical problems such as stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure and certain neurological problems.
Our highly qualified and experienced optometrists know how to manage most eye pathologies and are well-connected enough to refer you to a dedicated specialist or surgeon if required. We are often the first port of call if you have an eye problem. We accept referrals from Ophthalmologists from private sector and NHS as well as other Optometrists for second opinions.
Our practices are well equipped with up-to-date hospital-grade diagnostic instruments, such as OCT and Optomap, to care for your eyes. We appreciate that the machines are as good as useless without a qualified and knowledgeable clinician to operate, analyze and make sense of the information. We have all the above. Please see our team profile for his/her area of expertise.
As healthcare professionals, our optometrists undergo regular training and attend educational meetings to keep up-to-date with current best practice and clinical knowledge. A few of us even organize these educational meetings.
