Eye Examinations

A comprehensive eye examination involves much more than just determining your prescription. It also checks your eyes for common eye diseases, assesses how your eyes work together and can be an indicator of your overall health.

At Lakeland Optical we have the latest Nidek digital phoropter technology – gone are the opticians’ glasses and box of lenses! Other equipment includes, Topcon OCT 3D scan(additional charge £20), Zeiss Humphrey field screener, Topcon retinal photography, and other tests appropriate to your individual needs. Every test will be thoroughly explained, and a detailed description of any ocular pathology detected. Take home literature is available for common ocular conditions and time is taken for any queries.

Lisa Sariwee is a fully qualified optometrist, graduating in 1999. She is registered with the General Optical Council, The Association of Optometrists and is a member of The College of Optometrists. She was also awarded "Optician of the Year" by the people of Blackpool after discovering a young patient had an extremely rare ocular tumour.
