Specialist Eye Services
As well as our general eye/sight testing service, we offer a range of specialist services for patients who require diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of many eye conditions.
Uniquely for one practice, both our optometrists are Glaucoma Specialists and Registered Independent Prescribers.
This means we can offer a higher level of service to diagnose, treat, prescribe medications and monitor range of eye conditions including:
- Emergency eye or vision problems
- Glaucoma and ocular hypertension
- Macular degeneration and other retinal conditions
- Flashes and floaters
- Dry or watery eyes
- Blepharitis and eyelid problems
- Red, watery, itchy eyes
- Eye infections and allergies
- Superficial foreign bodies
- Sudden loss of vision
- Visual field loss
- Retinal tomography (OCT scanning)
Please note these specialist services are not funded by the NHS so our usual charges apply.
However, we also host Wetherby Eye Clinic, a community NHS Ophthalmology Service in partnership with Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust, where suitable patients previously requiring referral to a NHS hospital eye clinic can be seen in the practice by our specialist optometrists and visiting ophthalmologist – read more
For some patients, their vision is not adequate for their daily needs, despite the best spectacle correction. This may be due to age related eye changes such as macular degeneration. Careful assessment can be offered to identify what additional support is required. This may be through advice about lighting and contrast, use of optical magnifiers, computer technology, or referral to other organisations that can offer help in adapting to reduced vision.
We have a range of optical aids and magnifiers that can be demonstrated and prescribed where appropriate.
