Eye Tests

The Sight Test

As an independent optician in North East London, we firmly believe in giving you an exceptional level of service. It is with this philosophy that we continue to invest in the latest technology for eye tests, including computerised vision testing, retinal imaging, hospital standard visual fields testing, child-friendly computerised test charts and diagnostic microscopes with high magnification just to name a few. Highly skilled optometrists with hospital experience and friendly approach to your eye examination in North East London During your sight examination, our highly skilled optometrists will examine your vision and carry out the appropriate sight tests to see if you require vision correction. A regular eye examination is, therefore, an essential check to maintain good, healthy vision.

Exceptional Service

Gathering Information

At the first appointment, we aim to gather as much information as possible regarding ocular history, general health and family history. Details of previous prescriptions for glasses, contact lenses and medication are also extremely valuable along with information regarding lifestyle and specific optical requirements.

Further Tests

After the eye examination advice is given on the most suitable visual correction. Occasionally a second appointment is required for further tests or specialist examinations and if necessary we will liaise with a patient’s doctors and specialists. We welcome patients who are eligible for NHS sight tests. However, the NHS eye test does not include the high standards of investigations offered by our Enhanced and Deluxe private eye examination. We encourage an optional upgrade for this service for a small additional fee.

Low vision aid

Low vision aids are devices to enhance vision for those that have impaired vision that cannot be corrected using conventional spectacles. We recognise the challenges patients diagnosed with low vision face.

Low Vision Assessment

We carry out a full assessment of your vision at the present time, a thorough investigation of the problems you are experiencing, a discussion of your requirements, and then attempt to meet these, using high powered or tinted spectacles, telescopes, magnifiers, lighting and other simple gadgets.

Further Guidance

Low vision aids are used in a different way to "ordinary" spectacles, and it takes a little time and effort to get used to using them. You will be trained in the use of the aid, and then take it home to practice. You will then be followed up after 2-3 weeks to make sure that the aid is successful. We may suggest that you practice reading and using your eyes in a different way, in order to make the best use of your remaining vision.

Come into the practice to find out more and to arrange a low vision assessment.

Diabetic Screening

Digital Fundus Camera

At Silverman Opticians in London, we have a digital fundus camera for diabetic retinal screening. Patients who would otherwise need to attend a hospital eye clinic for diabetic retinopathy screening can be seen here, privately, at their convenience.

Diabetic retinopathy is one of the commonest causes of blindness in the UK. At any one time, up to 10% of people with diabetes will have retinopathy requiring medical follow-up or treatment. Diabetes can also affect other organs and the presence and severity of retinopathy may be an indicator of increased risk of other complications of diabetes.

Eye Tracking

The Eye Tracking Device

The eye tracker is a device with Infra red cameras used to detect eye movements during reading. The system uses a small bar which is mounted below a computer screen. The bar incorporates IR cameras which detect the position of the eyes to within less than 1 degree. The software replays exactly where the patient was looking and shows the horizontal and vertical position of the eyes and convergence/phoria. Powerful built-in analysis algorithms automatically provide a range of statistics relating to reading performance.

conclusions can be drawn as to the reading speed, efficiency and other factors for example, such as how much time eyes fixate on a word, which impacts on processing time, and so on.
