NHS Eye Examinations

All NHS patients are welcome at Airedale Opticians.

You are entitled to a basic NHS adult eye tests every two years if you fulfil any of the criteria listed on the NHS website. You may be recommended to have more frequent eye examinations depending on your eye health, your last eye test prescription will usually state this.

The basic NHS eye test covers your current eye health and vision, however the NHS does not fund the use of more advanced health and vision screening techniques. At Airedale Opticians we have invested in award winning machinery allowing us to view great detail within the eye. All NHS patients can add a scan to their test, allowing us to use our world-class testing abilities to provide the most thorough eye examination. See our eye scan page for more information.
