The health of your eyes couldn’t be more important to us.
That’s why we provide a complete eye health examination when you visit Optical Express for an eye test. You’ll receive a personalised iScan report, which includes eye and general health information that you won’t typically find as part of a written prescription.
Thanks to iScan, we’re able to monitor your eye health at your regular eye tests, and pick up on any changes that have occurred.
It's more than just a sight test; it can identify other health issues, too. Your optometrist will advise you as to how often you should have your eyes tested, but for most people, every two years is recommended. In younger people under the age of 16, or for those with certain eye conditions, annual or more frequent eye examinations may be recommended.Learn more about your eye test
