Our commitment to quality eyecare

June 6th, 2013

Recent advances in technology have made it possible to examine your eyes in far greater detail than ever before.

Our practices have always been commited to providing the highest possible standards of eye care. We can only maintain these by investing in new equipment and training. If we don’t keep the practices up-to-date, our standards will start to slip. Martin Coe has recently qualified as an Independent Prescriber, one of only two Optometrists in Leicestershire and Rutland and one of only a handful of Optometrists in Central England hold this speciality qualification.

The NHS sight test

The NHS has for many years paid for free sight tests for people in need, based on age, eye condition, family history and income.

The purpose and contents of the NHS sight test were laid down in the Opticians Act 1989 long before many of the modern tests we now use in private practice were developed.

Our Position

We believe the increase in competition between high street Optometrists over the past twenty years has been good for patients, bringing increased choice and low prices.

Our practice has thrived, not by cutting corners, but by providing a high level of service, thorough eye examinations and high quality products. Because we maintain high standards of care and have continued to improve our equipment and invest in new technology, many of our patients recommend our practices.

We think that you deserve a much wider range of services than just the NHS sight test. Unfortunately, the NHS does not pay us to provide all the test and procedures that we are able to offer you, when you need them.

Our policy

  • We will provide all NHS patients with the highest standards of care in their sight tests.
  • We will charge a fair and honest price for any enhanced services which may be appropriate for your eye care.

We trust that our NHS patients will support our approach as the only way for us to continue to provide the high level of eye care that everyone deserves.

In other news, we have been asked by Mr Patel to give an update with regard to Bowley’s Opticians. After the unexpected closure in December we posted an article saying goodbye to our colleagues and some guidance to their existing patients. We are pleased to announce that Mr Patel has now purchased the practice from the liquidators, including existing patient’s records. May we take this opportunity to wish you and your team every success.
