Eye Examinations

Regular eye examinations are important for everyone, even for those of us who have no known eye problems.

Mr Iain Macnish  our resident optometrist & skilled clinician, has many years experience in hospitals such as The Royal Liverpool & Alder Hey Children’s hospital as well as independent practice. Qualified as a Dry Eye Consultant at Moorfields London he has further qualifications in therapeutics, constantly refreshing his skills and knowledge to keep up with the latest theories and research. He will take the time to listen to your reasons for visiting us and tailor the examination to your needs.

Our practice is committed to providing the most comprehensive eye examinations, however, there is a limit to the level of eye care currently funded by the NHS. We believe it’s time to provide your eye care in a new way, using the latest clinical advances alongside a personal and memorable experience & providing this as a free service to all NHS patients & for private patients within a standard eye test fee of £40.00.


We believe in our patients receiving the best clinical care and we do this with the combination of expertise and by continuously investing in the latest state-of-the-art testing equipment including an OCT Scanner and Fundus photography.

Whilst the majority of optical practices use legacy technology to identify eye disease, when all too often there has been functional loss of vision identified too late.  Eden Eyecare aim is to detect eye disease before it affects visual function.

Eden Eyecare’s clinical imaging technology has earned us the respect from other medical practitioners and enables us to offer clinical service akin to a hospital department and rarely ever found in any traditional opticians.
