Park Lane Opticians Macclesfield

Eye Tests & Fees

An eye test involves a thorough and accurate assessment of your prescription and a check of eye health both internal and externally by our Optometrist.  Glasses or contact lenses may be recommended, but many people simply come for a reassuring annual eye check.

You will be given  time to express any concerns that you have and discuss  the findings.

In addition to the standard eye test we  offer enhanced tests which include a detailed investigation of accommodation and convergence, can measure your fusional reserves, fixation disparity and eye dominance. Irlen testing is also available privately for adults, these tests are worth considering if you experience reading difficulties, visual stress, migraines or photophobia.

Whether you play golf, sing in a choir, sit in front of a screen all day or are a keen sportsperson your eyecare and eyewear needs will differ. We will offer you advice on the best products to precisely suit your needs. We are experienced in examining all age groups & those with communication & learning disability. At Park Lane Opticians our staff are fully trained to provide a smooth appointment and knowledgeable follow on from your eye test. Our prescriptions are guaranteed when dispensed by our practice.
