Eye examinations are very important as a primary health care screening service, not just for those who wear spectacles. Conditions such as high blood pressure, brain tumours and cancer of the colon can all show signs inside the eyes, as well as local conditions like glaucoma and cataract, so regular eye examinations play a very important role in general health care.
Conditions such as dyslexia, epilepsy and migraine can also be significantly improved by spectacles and tints, but the first step is to have an eye examination.
At Buckingham Opticians we offer half-hourly tests, so you won't feel hurried or rushed. We can examine patients of any age from birth, have a wealth of experience and treat everyone with dignity and respect. Some people are very nervous about having their eyes examined, especially young children or patients for whom it is their first test, so we try to make it as enjoyable a process as we can. We can examine children who do not know their letters; we can examine patients who cannot speak English; we can examine deaf patients; we can examine patients with learning disabilities.
If you have any worries or concerns, please do not hesitate to give us a ring or send an email.
We are here to help.
