We offer specialised examinations through the Welsh Eye Care Service
We are an accredited practice for the EHEW scheme, which allows us to provide high quality eye care to people who are more at risk of developing sight problems, people that would be severely disadvantaged if they lost their sight (e.g. those with hearing impairment) or people with acute eye problems. Ceri works as a tutor and assessor, accrediting other practitioners across Wales to be part of this scheme.
Please visit the Eye Care Wales website for more information on eligibility.
If you have an urgent eye condition please see call the practice and we will endeavour to see you the same day, and at worst we will find a practice that will see you.
Eye tests conducted under the EHEW scheme are somewhat different from standard eye examinations. The point of an EHEW test is to test the health of your eyes and screen for any potential risks to your vision, rather than simply to issue a spectacle prescription. The precise nature of the examination will depend on your symptoms and on what your optometrist is looking for, however we often have to dilate (enlarge) your pupils with drops. These have the effect of making you more sensitive to light and your vision a little blurry. Therefore, you should not drive for a few hours after having your pupils dilated.
