Eye Examinations

Let's go!

There is nothing standard about a Spectacular Optician’s eye examination.

Our experienced clinicians will use high tech equipment to measure your vision, monitor your eye health and detect underlying conditions. We will conduct a thorough eye examination to determine your spectacle prescription. Your appointment will allow time for us to really get to know you and assess your eyes thoroughly. We believe in treating the care of every individual patient holistically; ensuring that we look after your general health in addition to the fitness of your eyes.

During your eye examination, we will begin by asking you about your medical history and any recent symptoms you may have experienced. We will use an eye profiler to measure the power of your eyes and examine your eye health using a handheld or table-mounted lens. We will then conduct a routine eye exam to check your unaided vision using various lenses. We can also photograph your eyes to keep a digital record of any changes. Depending on your age and history, we may check for some of the additional conditions or needs listed below. Finally, we will make a personalised recommendation for any treatment you may require.

As an adult, we recommend you have an eye examination to determine your spectacle prescription every two years to protect your long-term health. Call us today to get your next appointment in the diary.

We are so impressed with the service you provide ... We have total FAITH in all of you and that is not something which we say lightly ... We thank you again for your excellent service.


Professor Diane R. Von Helmholtz and Mrs Bryda Von Helmholtz

I would like to thank Spectacular Opticians for their professional approach and the ongoing support that they have given me over the last few years. I was having constant problems with my eye sight, until I received a very thorough sight test from one of their Optometrists, and now I can live and work in extreme comfort.


Mrs Daphne Gilby, Chatteris

Spectacular Opticians, thank you for the professional help and support received by my team this week. Our glasses are lovely and we are very pleased with the service, efficiency and price.


Odette and all at Brides by Solo, Newmarket

The young lady attending to me was exceptional with the time and care she took over my difficulty. I just wanted to say a special thank you for the hour you spent looking after me.


Mr Michael Stone

A huge thank you to your Downham Market branch who fitted me in at very short notice today when I presented with a painful eye. Both Tesco and Specsavers refused to see me until next week once they had established I wasn’t after a ‘standard’ eye test, despite me clearly being in pain. The receptionist at Downham couldn’t have been more helpful, and the optician gave up part of his lunch break to see me. That’s what I call excellent customer service, well done.


Mrs Pauline Finnerty, Downham Market
