Alex(the optician)has always had an interest in the latest eye testing technology.The equipment he has is really only usually available within a specialist clinic and also he is very experienced in interpretation of those images.For example he has the latest updated "Opto-map machine that looks in fine detail at your retinas.
Also the OCT Machine with looks at your optic nerve and gives a 3D image so it can really be checked in detail.Its not cheap for these tests but if you think about it,you cannot get this level of specialist equipment combined with Alex,s experience. As far as I know in London ONLY TWO opticians have this level of equipment. It costs £60 for both,but then if you paid a specialist eye doctor to look at you then he would have to order the tests separately,then your looking at HUNDREDS of pounds.
So why pay an Optician for very standard tests and standard photos when you can have a detailed exam using the very best and latest up to date technology?.
I cannot afford Glasses here(hey its Belsize park!)so I will go to spec-savers for my specs.But for an exam,this guy is the best.
A very cool boutique opticians. I went there recently for an optomap eye test, which can detect so much more than an ordinary eye exam. They have a gorgeous selection of frames too and I ended up buying a couple of pairs! Thumbs up from me!
