 EYE EXAMINATIONS & EYE CARE  

 
Did you know that your eyes rarely hurt, even if there’s a problem? 
 
This is why it’s vital to have regular eye examinations to check for systematic health issues such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. It can also detect a number of eye conditions at an early stage, such as glaucoma, cataracts, age related macula degeneration and dry eyes. We strive for prevention over cure. 
 
We recommend an eye examination at least every 2 years. It is FREE for children under 16 or under 18 in full time education, everyone aged 60 and over and certain health and NHS categories. To see if you are entitled for a NHS funded sight test please click here (link to http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/Healthcosts/Pages/Eyecarecosts.aspx) or come and speak to us and we will be able to help you. 
 
We pride ourselves in ensuring that your eye examination is not only thorough but also comfortable and enjoyable. Poonam will carefully and thoroughly examine your eyes finding your exact needs and giving you the most appropriate options to fulfil those needs. We cover the following:

 DIGITAL RETINAL PHOTOGRAPHY 

In addition to your routine examination we offer digital retinal photography to all our patients. The best thing is, it’s simple, quick and nothing touches your eyes! 
 
Why it’s important. 
Digital photography allows us to examine parts of the retina in a way not possible with conventional instruments. Retinal photography gives us an opportunity to detect, view and monitor early signs of any sight-threatening eye conditions. 
 
We can keep a record and send images to your doctor or consultant if required. 
Digital photography is available to NHS patients for a small fee. 
 
Are You A Regular Computer User? 
We check your VDU vision and offer advice about how to make using a computer more comfortable, such as, anti-reflection coating to help minimise glare, lighting, posture and the need for taking frequent breaks.

We Look After Your Whole Family 
Did you know? Your child's vision develops from their first day until they reach approximately 8 years of age. 
 
At Humphriss & Burgess the whole family is important to us, from great grandparents through to the tiniest tots. Poonam has her own young children so fully understands the importance of keeping your little one entertained yet fully focused through the sight test. 
 
We will make the whole process of your child having their eyes examined fun and exciting, by using interactive methods, picture test cards and exercises, so your child can look forward to a fun but beneficial sight test.

We recommend bringing your child to us around 3 years of age. The majority of eye conditions don't have any symptoms so regular check-ups means that your child's eye health and vision development is being monitored. 
 
What to look out for: Your child does not know how well they should be seeing and may not display any signs of having a problem. Common warning signs to look out for are : 
 
Excessive blinking 
Squinting or screwing up the eyes to see 
Peering closely at TV or books 
Clumsiness 
Poor performance at school 
Reluctancy to read 
Headaches 
 
Please book an appointment if you notice any of these symptoms. Should your little one need eyewear, they are in for a treat. Not only is it possible to fit youngsters as young as 8 with contact lenses, we also stock a wide variety of fun and colourful frames to keep your child excited about correcting their vision.
