Discover Our Advanced Eye Test
Eyecare technology is moving ahead here at Pagan & McQuade Opticians and we would like to introduce you to our new advanced eyecare service through which you will have direct access to our latest healthcare technology. To keep your eyes healthy, we can now look deeper (under your retina) and wider (toward the edges) of your inner eye than we have ever been able to achieve before.
A Deeper View
Our OCT inspects below the surface of your retina to check for numerous eye conditions including macular degeneration, diabetes, glaucoma, vitreous detachment and macular holes amongst others.
A Wider View – from our OPTOMAP
The only instrument of its kind in Scarborough which provides you with an ultra wide, digital retinal image with a 200 degree field of view compared to a 45 degree view from conventional retinal cameras. Take a look at the difference Optomap makes in the image below.
Your scans are non-invasive and painless. Our software can detect the most subtle changes below your retina at every examination. This degree of analysis is not achievable with the equipment available in a standard NHS eye examination.
Your retinal health is important. An unhealthy retina cannot send clear signals to your brain resulting in impaired vision. Many retinal conditions and other diseases can be treated sooner with the earlier detection that our technology provides, offering the potential for better visual outcomes.
NHS & Private Eye Tests
For all the above scans, examinations, extra time and analysis, the private fee is £129. However, to make this health advance affordable, we now offer it at a reduced rate by direct debit at £8.97 per month for an annual examination including this equipment to protect your eye healthcare.
Our Advanced Eyecare Service allows you to access a new, higher standard of eyecare than we have been able to offer before. So we now look deeper and look wider to protect your eye health with the Pagan & McQuade Advanced Eyecare Service at a fee of £8.97 per month. Bob Barr MCOptom and Louise Bailey MCOptom, your Optometrists at Pagan & McQuade Opticians recommend and fully endorse the Advanced Eyecare Service to you.
NHS Funded Eye Tests
We started providing NHS eye examinations in Scarborough way back in 1988 and we continue to provide the NHS eye examination to qualifying groups of people. We provide private eye examinations if you do not qualify for an NHS funded examination.
There is no NHS funding of our additional equipment used in our Advanced Eye Tests. Whilst we will continue to give our best endeavours under the NHS as we have always done, it is by private fees that we are able to offer class leading equipment to our patients.
