YOUR SPECIALIST CLINICS
In addition to regular eye examinations, our Optometrists have extensive experience and hold an array of additional accreditations and qualifications, bringing even more specialised services to you at Dray's Eyecare. No matter what your issue or concern, take a look at the variety of enhanced clinics we offer below.
DRY EYE CLINIC
Dry eye occurs when your eyes do not produce enough tears, there are drainage issues or the tear chemistry is incorrect. Symptoms include eyes feeling dry, gritty, sore, tired, visually disturbed or constantly watering. Our Optometrists can provide a specialist consultation for dry eye and will recommend a personalised care regime to give you relief and often mitigate your symptoms.
PRIVATE EYE EMERGENCY
There are many causes of eye conditions, some that occur quickly, some develop over time, including flashes/floaters, haloes or light sensitivity, vision loss, distorted/double vision, red eyes, pain/lumps on the eye or lid. If you notice any of these symptoms, or something else of concern, contact us and our specialist Optometrists can asses, diagnose and offer treatment without a visit to the hospital.
COLOURIMETRY AND VISUAL STRESS
A colourimetry assessment, determines the impact of using specific coloured lenses on conditions such as visual stress, migraine, dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, ADD and ASD. A recent study of 400 children with dyslexia. found that over 90% of the subjects reported a significant improvement with Chromagen. We offer assessments with lenses from the Chromagen range, along with our own range of coloured lenses and filters.
NHS GLAUCOMA REFINEMENT
At you eye examination you may have had the “puff of air” test, if the result fell outside the normal range, you would have been referred to the eye hospital for further investigation. Dray’s Eyecare have invested in NHS agreed specification equipment, which enables us to perform these checks without the need to inconvenience you with trips to Oxford and free up more time at the hospital. We offer this service to all our patients, or you may be referred to us from another Opticians.
