Over 60s

We have fantastic choices to enhance your freedom with the latest varifocal designs as well as great frames to match.

Adults over 60 are offered dilation. This means they will not be allowed to drive for between 4-6 hours or operate heavy machinery after the check-up. They will be light sensitive for this time and it’s definitely worth bringing sunglasses for the appointment.

These are standard checks that all optometrists are required to do under the NHS eye examination and if the optometrists feels appropriate. If you are concerned about any aspect of the eye check, feel free to speak to the optometrist at the start or during the examination. If you feel you need a longer appointment time for anything, feel free to ask when making it.
