"I have thoroughly recommended the optomap to all my family and friends since my own experience.

Although I always had regular eye tests, it was only an optomap scan which found I had a serious problem (retinal detachment) resulting in surgery in less than 24 hours.  I feel grateful that I had access to a system which enabled me to avoid possible serious damage to my eyes especially as no symptoms were apparent."

Patient, the Midlands


"After my recent eye test I would like to thank you for your most efficient service. I took advantage of your optomap service which revealed a speck behind my eye. You immediately referred me to an eye consultant who told me I had an extremely good optician to pick up the blemish which I now need to have checked every 12 months. I am sure you will agree that the optomap played a large part in the detection of my condition ... I can only believe all your patients will benefit ... I must say I felt very relaxed and secure being offered the latest optomap service."

Patient, South of England


"Following our recent visit to the practice, my wife and I would just like to say that we were most impressed with the optomap and the professional way you and your staff treated us both. It is a service I would recommend to anybody who is about to visit your practice as we felt it was something unique (or something we have not come across) and gave us added peace of mind that the differences noted were nothing to worry about."

"I had a routine vision test today at a practice offering the optomap Retinal Examination. Being an Insulin Dependent Diabetic, I have them examined regularly, more so recently as I had some laser treatment to one eye during the last year. I have often seen scribbled retinal drawings of my eyes. Today I was instantly able, without the need for drops, to see the optomap photo taken. A very knowledgeable gentleman (Senior Optician?) explained everything on the image in great detail and gave me the clearest understanding of the condition of my eyes that I have ever had. To be able to visualize the areas of concern was helpful for me to understand why I needed laser treatment and the need for tight diabetic control. I can see that this is an instrument that is going to have a profound impact in the monitoring of eye health."

Patient, South-West Scotland


"I am writing to thank you and your staff for your first-class work when you picked up the problem with my retina last January. I have since received laser treatment at my local hospital and today I was discharged after a final examination by the specialist – everything appears to be fine, so thank you all once again!"

Patient, North-West England


"I was pleased with the efficient service I received recently when I was experiencing trouble in my left eye. Your diagnosis of a sizeable haemorrhage behind my eye was shown vividly on the screen from the optomap photographs. This service (optomap) obviously provides a very important diagnostic tool for the optometrist and an insight into the condition for the patients concerned."
