The Importance of Quality Eye Care
The importance of quality eye care should not be understated. Regular eye examinations are essential to keep on top of your eye care needs, and also to detect, prevent, and slow down the onset of other health problems. That is why we offer a full range of enhanced services not just for sight testing but also for diabetes screening, glaucoma screening, red eye treatment and cataract screening. Identified early, these problems can be treated or managed effectively and their development slowed.
We are very fortunate to be able to provide these services to the local community in Gorton due to being an ophthalmic clinic. Our team of highly qualified optometrists are trained to recognise early warning signs of health problems such as diabetes and will ensure you receive the best possible care and a welcoming smile every time.

Little Ones Need Specialist Eye Care too!
Even the tiniest eyes need specialist eye care! Little ones often can’t tell you there is a problem, so it is important to pop in to our Gorton clinic at least once a year for a visit to our friendly optometrists so we can help your children see better. We know that sight tests can be an intimidating experience for young ones, which is why we take a different approach. We want to make their experience with us as relaxed as possible, which is why before your child’s eye examination one of our friendly optometrists will sit down and explain to your child what will happen in their sight test. We use different tests on children’s eyes to adults, and we make it as playful as possible for them.
Eye checks can be done at any age, even before they can read, so whether you have concerns about their sight or just want a check-up, bring them in to meet our friendly team so we can rule out any worrying vision problems early.
Children’s performance can be affected due to poor eyesight so it is very important that you book your child in for regular eye health checks.
