Eye Health Check

Our eye health check is designed to detect serious eye health conditions such as glaucoma and age related macular degeneration (AMD) that can result in blindness.

Our specialist eye diagnostic centre is based at 25 Harley Street. It has state-of-the-art diagnostic testing equipment, operated by senior ophthalmic technicians and test results interpreted by a leading eye disease expert.

Why have an Eye Health Check?

Many people in Britain haven’t had an eye test since childhood and only bother to get their eyes tested when their vision is impaired. This is often too late to treat serious eye diseases.

One of the most common causes of blindness is glaucoma. It is asymptomatic, so you won’t know you’ve got it unless you get your eyes tested.  This is why glaucoma is often referred to the ‘silent thief of sight‘. If you lose your sight to glaucoma, you can’t get it back.

Having your eyes tested shouldn’t just be done just to check if you need glasses. It should be done to detect serious eye diseases, such as age related macular degeneration (AMD) and glaucoma. This will ensure they can be identified early enough to successfully treat.

This is particularly important if you are over the age of 40, which is when the eyes may start to deteriorate and risk of glaucoma and AMD increases.

Many causes of sight loss are preventable if caught early. Having your eyes tested regularly is the best way to ensure you maintain good visual quality of life.



What's included in your eye examination?

Your eye health check appointment will be at 25 Harley Street. You will have four different eye tests, designed to detect specific eye conditions and diseases, including cataracts, glaucoma, age related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. The tests are easy to complete, with no discomfort and nothing touching the eye. It will take approximately 30 minutes.

Your test results will be reviewed by our leading eye specialists. You will receive a detailed written report outlining your results a few days later.


Medical history with a technician

This establishes whether you are at a greater than average risk of a particular eye condition.

Visual acuity test

This evaluates the sharpness of your vision; it helps to identify whether you need glasses and whether cataract or another eye condition may be present.

OCT scan

This provides images of the back of the eye; it enables the diagnosis of various eye conditions, including macular degeneration, glaucoma and the consequences of diabetes.

Intraocular pressure test

This measures the pressure in the eyes and helps determine the risk for glaucoma.

Retinal photography

This records coloured images of the interior surface of the eye using a fundus camera; this helps identify conditions such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.

Review of tests by leading consultant

Our leading eye disease expert will review your test results and will provide you with a detailed report on findings. If any serious eye diseases are detected, you will be referred to Consultant Ophthalmologist for a face-to-face consultation, where they eye condition can be explained in more detail and treatment options discussed.
