An eye test not only checks your vision and your ability to see well, it also checks for all kinds of eye disease and is an invaluable part of an overall health assessment. Forde opticians have invested in state-of-the-art retinal cameras and optical coherence tomography (OCT)  , visual field equipment, and binocular slit lamp microscopes to enable them to screen for Glaucoma, Cataract, Diabetes, Age Related Macular Degeneration, Dry Eyes, and many more eye conditions.

Our digital retinal camera takes a photo of the back of the eye (the retina) and this is stored on computer so we can monitor for changes to your retina with every eye test you have.

To book your eye test at Forde Opticians call us today on 0141 440 1567 (Govan) or 01505 329 489 (Linwood).
