Truly Expert Eye Care

A lot of our clients are professionals themselves and they choose us because they want to see an expert. They want to see someone they have confidence in and they want to get it right. At Geoff McConville Opticians your 45 minute eye exam will be with the man himself - Geoff!

The reason we take 45 minutes is not just about the technical bits of doing an eye exam. You can do an eye test in 20 minutes and that is what most places do.

But the extra time we spend with you means we can give you better advice and recommendations.

We take more time to find out about YOU, so you can tell us what you really want, what your preferences are, how you use your eyes, what type of work you do etc. And that means you’ll get effective advice and solutions because it is tailored to you.

Esterman Visual Field Test

The standard set by the DVLA for ordinary (Group 1) drivers is defined as:-

“a field of at least 120° on the horizontal measured using the Goldmann III4e setting or the equivalent. In addition, there should be no significant defect in the binocular field which encroaches within 20° of fixation either above or below the horizontal meridian”

The DVLA may require you to take a visual field test if you have disclosed an eye condition that affects the quality of your vision. This would ordinarily involve an eye examination with and without your current spectacle prescription as well as the visual fields test at an optometrist of the DVLA’s choosing.

The Esterman Visual Field Test is carried out on both eyes together (binocularly) and wearing any glasses that you normally wear when driving. It is carried out on a visual field analyser, a computerised machine where you have to respond to small, flashing lights by pressing a button whilst looking straight ahead. The test should take around half an hour to complete.

Our optometrist here at Geoff McConville Opticians can carry out the test and provide with you with the documentation required by the DVLA.

Elegant Georgian Building

Most eye tests happen in small dark rooms. But not here. We’re lucky enough to be in a nice elegant Georgian building with the luxury of space and natural light. That means we can make your experience a more enjoyable one. We’re even known for our coffees. It feels more like a boutique here. It’s not rushed. We’ll take time to answer all your questions. We are all about the 'experience' here at Geoff McConville Opticians.

OUR PATIENTS SAY

Don’t take our word for it. Our testimonials speak for themselves.

I have had great difficulty finding glasses that I suit and feel confident wearing. Also feeling confident in the prescription. I have finally found an opticians who combines both excellently. Even when I went to get the glasses the service was impressive. Wish I had have gone here years ago!

Splendid surroundings, helpful staff, always better than 20:20 lenses and specs, thanks Geoff!
