The practice was established in June 2014 with the sole intention of providing world class clinical eye care alongside professional dispensing of premium quality optical solutions within a relaxed environment devoid of retail sales pressure.
Since then, the ethos has remained unchanged yet the practice has evolved. From the outset, specialist clinical services have been available in ocular surface disease, visual stress and advanced contact lenses.
As the evidence base for the management of myopia (short sight) progression has grown significantly a myopia management clinic was introduced in 2017.
2020 marked further evolution. With advanced instrumentation and in collaboration with experienced Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon, Mr Thomas Ressiniotis the practice can now manage an increased range of ocular conditions both medically and surgically.
We welcome new patients. Ample parking exists directly outside the practice. The beautiful Moor Pool estate is also very easy on the eye.
