Sight Tests

About a Sight Test

A sight test at Enderbys is an enjoyable and straight forward process. We allow 45 minutes for your examination so you will have plenty of time to talk about any problems you may have. We will carry out all the necessary tests and checks and discuss all results with you. It will help us to know about your general health and any medication that you are taking in case it affects your eyes and we need to know if you have any special requirements to see well for your work or leisure activities. The opticians at Enderbys recommend that you have a sight test at least once every two years to help keep your eyes healthy and to make sure you are seeing to the best possible standard. For more information about the tests and checks that may be included in your sight test please click here. If you would like more information or would like to book a sight test at Enderbys please contact us and a member of the Enderbys team will be happy to help.
