Eye Care

At Webb, Lucas and Stubbs we are committed to offering the highest levels of professional and clinical service while giving the best individual care and attention to our patients. Our optometrists are highly skilled clinicians who maintain specialist knowledge enabling them to prescribe you the perfect pair of spectacles or contact lenses. Through the ability to diagnose and manage a wide range of eye conditions, we aim to ensure that your eyes remain comfortable and that you can continue to enjoy seeing the beauty in the world around you.

We regularly attend national conferences and training events to ensure that we stay up to date with the very latest technology. We are pleased to offer a range of cutting edge equipment which provides exceptional imaging of the eye. Our equipment includes 3D spectral domain OCT scanning, digital fundus photography, anterior eye cameras and corneal topography.

We offer private & NHS funded eye examinations, and we are delighted to be able to offer everyone the opportunity to upgrade to a platinum eye examination with OCT scanning

Specialist Services

Our team of optometrists are all involved in providing extended NHS services, including:

MECS (minor eye conditions scheme) – we offer emergency appointments for patients with sudden onset symptoms, such as flashes and floaters or red eye, and also for those with chronic symptoms, such as gritty, sore eyes or dry eyes

Glaucoma Referral Refinement – we perform contact tonometry (pressure test) and extended visual field testing, using the same instruments as the hospital, to ensure only appropriate referrals are sent on to see an ophthalmologist

Post-op Follow-up for Cataract surgery – we are part of a pilot scheme, offering the follow-up appointments for patients who have had a cataract removed at Rowley Hall Hospital

Myopia Management

Myopia, often known as Short Sightedness, is dramatically on the rise around the world.

Speak to your optometrist today if your child:

  • Is already short-sighted.
  • Is under 16 years old.
  • Is a student in full-time study.
  • Spends less than 1.5 hours outside every day.
  • Spends more than 2 hours reading or using handheld devices (outside of school hours).
  • Has one or more parents with Myopia (though even with neither parent suffering myopia, it still affects 1 in 4 people!).

If any of the above applies to you, or if you just want to be certain you’re taking the very best care of your child’s eyes, we advise speaking to your optometrist to investigate the best course of action to help avoid or reduce the severity of myopia. More Information

Dry Eye Assessments

“The good news is that after a thorough investigation, most people find that dry eye is relatively easy to manage.”

During a dry eye assessment, we will carefully consider your own symptoms, health history and environment. We will then undertake a specialist examination of your eyes and tears, and once we have determined the causes of your discomfort, we will recommend the best way to alleviate your symptoms and ensure that you leave knowing exactly how to treat your particular condition with a bespoke care plan.

We will then invite you to return for follow-up appointments to fine tune your treatment. This is a private fee service and is not covered by the NHS. Ask for a dry eye clinic appointment at reception. More Information

Optomap

Annual eye exams are vital to maintaining your vision and overall health. Webb, Lucas and Stubbs Optometrists offer the optomap® as an important part of our eye exams. The optomap produces an image that is unique and provides our Optometrists with a high-resolution 200° image in order to ascertain the health of your retina. This is much wider than a traditional 45° image. Many eye problems can develop without you knowing, in fact, you may not even notice any change in your sight – fortunately, diseases or damage such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal tears or detachments, and other health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be seen with a thorough exam of the retina. The inclusion of optomap as part of an Advanced Sight Test provides:

  • A scan to show a healthy eye or detect disease.
  • A view of the retina, giving your doctor a more comprehensive view than they can get by other means.
  • The opportunity for you to view and discuss the optomap image of your eye with your Optometrist at the time of your exam.
  • A permanent record for your file, which allows your Optometrist to view your images each year to look for changes.

The optomap is fast, easy, and comfortable for anyone. The entire image process consists of you looking into the device one eye at a time. The optomap images are shown immediately on a computer screen so we can review it with you.

4D HD OCT

The majority of the population doesn’t realise that a comprehensive eye health check isn’t just about a new pair of spectacles or contact lenses. It can reveal early changes in your eyes, of which you may be unaware. Early detection allows for early treatment and a better outcome for you. With our 4D HD imaging technology, we are now able to identify and monitor the smallest change and that changes everything.

The SPECTRALIS 4D HD OCT Eye Health Check uses a patented eye-tracking system that produces 3-dimensional images of the eye, allowing us to more easily identify if you are at risk of eye disease. The tracking system allows the scan to be placed in exactly the same place on every visit, giving a true 4D view of change over time.
Please contact us to schedule your SPECTRALIS 4D HD OCT Eye Health Check as part of your Advanced Sight Test.

It is fast, non-contact and does not present you with a bright flash of light or a puff of air. You simply sit in front of the instrument and your eye is scanned in just a few seconds. Based on the information gathered in this exam, we will provide you with peace of mind and if necessary an individualised follow-up plan.

NHS Sight Tests

Every NHS sight test is tailor-made depending on your need. As well as an eye health check, a sight test might detect signs of underlying general health conditions, such as diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Everyone should have a sight test every two years, or more often if your optometrist recommends it.
