Examination of your eyes can also help in the early diagnosis of other serious health conditions which can affect your entire body. These include glaucoma and stroke, which we can detect using our Zeiss Humphrey visual fields analyser, as well as diabetes and cancer and a range of hereditary conditions. The diagnostic facilities such as our Intelipuff Tonometer, Slit Lamp and Retinal Camera allow us to examine and monitor your eyes with more clarity than ever before.
Many people can benefit from the cost of their eye exam being covered by the NHS. This includes, but is not limited to, children under 16 (or under 19 and in full time education), all adults over 60, diabetics, glaucoma sufferers, or anyone over 40 who has an immediate relative diagnosed with glaucoma. If you are unsure of whether you qualify for an NHS funded eye test, simply ask a member of the Bottomley Opticians staff who will be happy to help.
