Book an Eye Test
Although we have been known for our unique and diverse range of eyewear, we have now expanded to include a state-of-the-art optometry clinic. As a specialist clinic backed by fully therapeutically endorsed optometrists, we are as meticulous with eye health as much as we are with eyewear. Fully equipped with the latest in optical technology we are in the perfect position to diagnose and monitor your eye health to ensure the early detection of eye disease and general health issues.
Regular eye examinations are important to protect your eye sight and general health. Using the latest technology we can more accurately screen for the early stages of eye conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and glaucoma. As these conditions can cause vision impairment and even blindness, early detection and management can safeguard your vision for the future.
Your time is valuable. We strive from the moment you visit and beyond to be attentive to your needs. Whether it’s a style consultation, frame tune up or a full eye examination, we are here for you. Schedule your appointment now.

LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR TECHNOLOGY
Optomap provides ultra-wide field, high resolution digital images of more than 80% of the retina in a single scan. This is more than 4 times traditional retinal imaging.
Why is retinal imaging important? The retina is the thin layer of tissue that lines the inner surface of the eye and is made up of several layers. Every retina is different and without regular imaging, the very early signs of eye disease can go undetected. This is because many eye conditions that affect the retina can be painless and often don’t cause visual symptoms until the later stages of the condition. For most eye conditions, early detection is crucial and therefore regular retinal imaging can assist your eyecare professional in protecting your sight by ensuring the early detection and management of eye disease.
Did you know the eye is the only place in the human body where blood vessels can be seen without making an incision – for this reason your eyes are a window to your general health. Retinal imaging can also help to detect potential general health problems such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and many other general health issues.
At onepointsevenfour we include opotmap imaging in all comprehensive eye examinations. For more information, please feel free to discuss this with our eyecare team or book an appointment with our expert optometrists.
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a sophisticated scanning system that provides highly detailed images of the internal structures of the eye. It is often likened to an MRI or ultrasound, allowing us to view 3D cross sectional images of the retina, the innermost layers of your eyes. Whilst other testing procedures such as optomap show the surface of your retina, an OCT scan differs in that it reveals what is below its surface. An OCT scan also measures the thickness of your retinal nerve fibre layer, a measurement that is a reliable indicator of the health of the optic nerve, for the early detection of Glaucoma.
An OCT scan is recommended for anyone with a family history of Glaucoma or Macular Degeneration. It is also recommended if you have other risk factors of Glaucoma such as high blood pressure, sleep apnea, migraines, Raynaud’s Syndrome, or other risk factors that may be detected by your optometrist during your eye examination.
Both OCT and Optomap scans are painless and quick to perform. A special camera using laser light takes an image of your retina then uploads the images to a computer. We store these images electronically so that we can monitor changes over time.
BIOMETRIC INTELLIGENT GLASSES
Traditionally, spectacle lenses have been designed using calculations from a standard eye model. But, did you know not all eye shapes are the same! This means that you may be wearing lenses that are not optimised to your individual eyes.
Using the latest technology from Rodenstock we are pushing the limits in quality as spectacle lens makers and are now able to produce the ultimate level of customisation in lens designs with the biometric data we measure during your eye examination.
During your eye examination we use the DNEye® Scanner by Rodenstock to measure over 7,000 points in the individual eye. This information is then integrated into the design of your lenses to allow complete customisation. This revolutionary technology results in higher contrast vision, improved night vision and increased field of vision, leading to a more natural visual experience.
We believe in the best. At onepointsevenfour you will experience the most innovative eyesight test by our experienced eyecare team. Just like a tailor-made suit, we then tailor make your spectacles lenses giving you clearer, sharper vision than ever before.
