Having the eyes and sight checked can be, for some people, a chore or worse. However, it is so important for every person to make the best use of their eyesight. At David Hillel the experience is pleasant and enjoyable, yet thorough and careful; interesting and enlightening. You only have one pair of eyes. They deserve the best attention, and at a reasonable price, but it should not be a testing time.
A person who books in for a checkup at David Hillel is given individual consideration. The appointment is tailored to each person’s requirements, instead of a one-size-fits-all “eye test”. Therefore, before examining the eyes, David will talk with you to understand how best to achieve your desired results. Everyone’s eyes and requirements are different, and what works for one person may not work for another.
At David Hillel, advanced equipment is used to examine the health of the eyes and maximise the sharpness and strength of the sight. Traditional techniques are also employed, where skill and experience with them gives the best result. The coordination of the eyes, their focussing and their muscles’ correct functioning are also measured and recorded carefully.
The appointment takes around thirty minutes, in comfort. The quality of the sight is professionally assessed and the results always explained and fully discussed to find the best way forward. Incidentally, children’s eyes can be checked at any age because our methods are adapted to suit the person easily and the ability to read is not necessary at all. We ask that people under 16 arrive with an adult.
The eye-examination is paid for by the NHS in many cases and often the NHS also pays, or helps to pay, for the cost of spectacles or contact lenses. For details of this NHS help, click here.
The eye-examination is to find out how to make the most of the sight, to maintain and preserve the comfort and efficiency of the eyes, and to relieve any problems associated with them: but, if you simply feel that it’s time for a new pair of specs, that’s a good enough reason to have a proper checkup!
