Visual Stress Assessment

As an accredited visual stress test centre, we can provide not only the screening test, but also the overlays and tinted lenses to the specific requirements.

Coloured overlays aim to reduce Visual Stress, the perceptual distortions experienced whilst reading text. This can increase reading fluency and speed, reduce headaches and increase the duration of comfortable reading.  The symptoms can occur despite normal vision.

Approximately 5% of the population are severely affected by Visual Stress and 20% to a lesser degree.

Children’s Eye Examinations & Visual Stress

Your Eye Examination

When it’s time for your examination, you will be greeted by our experienced Optometrists who will introduce themselves and explain the exam they will be conducting.

Depending on the eye test or contact lens appointment you’re having, the whole process will take between 20 minutes and 1 hour.

During your exam your practitioner will explain what they are doing.

If you have any questions about anything being carried out then you can ask at any point during your examination.


Following your comprehensive eye test, your Optometrist will discuss recommendations with you and the Dispensing Manager. These will be based on their findings. They will vary depending on the eye examination you had and could cover anything from glasses, contact lens options or prescription sunglasses to eyedrops, dry eye assessment or corrective surgery.

You will then be taken back to the main area of the practice where we can help you with the next stage of your journey. This may be choosing frames or discussing spectacle lens or finding out more about contact lenses or any of your other recommendations.


Our care for your eyes doesn’t just stop once you leave the store. Our supportive team are always on-hand to help and advise you in any way they can.

Whether you’re looking for further information surrounding common eye conditions, would like to learn more about contact lens options, or need changes made to your frames we’d love for you to get in touch with any questions you may have.

We’ll always remind you when your next Examination is due so you know when to come back and see us.
