Why should you book with Longton Optical?

Without good vision, it is difficult to enjoy most everyday activities including reading, driving and watching TV.

Poor eyesight may also indicate the presence of potentially serious diseases such as glaucoma or macular degeneration, or general health problems such as diabetes or high blood pressure.

Because these conditions develop slowly, you may not notice the initial symptoms. That’s why it’s essential to have your eyes examined regularly by an optometrist.

Your Eye Test

There is much more to your eye examination at our practice than finding out if you need spectacles or contact lenses. We also carry out a range of tests to assess the health of your eyes.

If you already wear spectacles or contact lenses, then please bring these to your appointment. We will check the lenses to establish their type, optical power and how well you can see with them.

Children's Eye Tests

We recommend that children’s eyes are tested every twelve months. Even if your child doesn’t need a spectacle correction the examination will look at the health of your child’s eyes, check their colour vision and ability to see in 3D.

We are happy to test children from the age of 4, if your child is younger than 4 and feel that he/she may need glasses it’s important to make an appointment with the GP who may refer your child to the hospital.

We offer a range of children’s glasses, some covered on the NHS optical voucher system, some which you can contribute towards including children’s designer glasses Disney & Marvel. For the older children we have Rayban frames plus other designers too.
