About your free consultation

Your consultation at Optical Express is more than just an eye test. One of our very experienced optometrists will carry out a number of steps to evaluate your prescription, eye health and general health. You'll also be able to discuss your personal requirements, and talk through any concerns you might have.

The consultation will take around 90 minutes. The final results will tell us if you're suitable for eye surgery and if so, which treatment will be best for you.
