Your eye sight is your most precious sense.  At Black & Lizars, we continually invest in our staff and state of the art optical technology to ensure you receive the highest standards of clinical care.

No matter how complex your prescription or eye condition is, our optometrists and qualified clinical staff have the skills to tailor your eye care to your individual needs.

Who should have their eyes examined?

NHS branding space

NHS eye examinations are funded by the NHS in Scotland. It is important that everyone should have a regular eye examination every 2 years, or as advised by your optometrist.

In particular you should ensure that you have your eyes examined regularly if:-

• You are over 40
• You have a history of glaucoma in your family
• You have diabetes

By having regular sight tests, early detection and treatment of even the most common problem can mean far fewer problems in the future.

Not only can regular eye tests detect common eye problems, they can detect other conditions that affect the rest of the body.  Conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol can all be discovered during a routine eye examination.

What will happen at my appointment?

Black & Lizars offers eye tests uniquely tailored to your needs.eye test

A full eye test checks:-

  • Any symptoms you may be experiencing
  • Your distance and near vision
  • The muscles attached to the outside of your eye
  • Your focusing ability
  • Your eye health
  • Your central and peripheral vision
  • The pressure in your eyes if required
  • Any prescription that may or may not need correction

At the end of your eye test the optometrist will fully discuss the results and give you appropriate advice. This may include the options for vision correction and information on maintaining the health of your eyes.

The length of your visit will vary depending on your age, whether dilating drops are required and whether any other tests (peripheral vision, retinal photographs or scans) are required. Whatever time is taken we will provide a comprehensive eye examination, focused on your eye health.
