Detect sooner. Protect your child more.

Optometrist Annabelle Magee’s passion since training at university has been the medical side of eye care and particularly children’s eye health. Clear View Opticians, owned by Annabelle, are a group of two independent practices one on Burton Road and one on Eastgate, dedicated to clinical and optical excellence.

Like with so many areas of our lives, modern developments in technology mean clinical assessment of eye health is more advanced and more thorough. Annabelle continues to invest in this latest technology ensuring your eye health is a priority at every eye test. With certain eye conditions, the faster you act, the more you protect.

Probably the most game-changing of these technologies in the world of eye care is the Optical Coherence Tomography scan (OCT). It is an emerging state of the art technology for performing high-resolution cross-sectional imaging of the retinal. It provides a view of the layers of tissue beyond the retinal surface, helping to spot abnormalities as early as possible.

 OCT is analogous to ultrasound imaging, except that it uses light instead of sound. For the patient it is completely pain free and very quick – just a flash of bright light no brighter than a normal camera flash.

OCT scans can detect certain potentially sight-threatening issues up to five years earlier than standard testing techniques, because often areas of the eye can change before the vision is lost.

Being able to see clearly is important for a child’s overall development and helps them to discover and learn about their world. Most children have excellent sight and do not need to wear glasses, but if there are problems and they are not picked up at an early age, your child may have permanently reduced vision in one or both eyes. Currently in Lincolnshire there is no child vision screening offered in schools. Children do not have to be able to read or talk to have their eyes examined. Clear View Opticians are willing to test children from 3 years old.  Eye examinations for children under 16 are paid for by the NHS.

As a Lincs Kids member Annabelle is willing to offer a free OCT scan for your child. Just mention your Lincs Kids membership at time of booking an appointment.

To book your child for an eye examination at Clear View call 01522 542121 or 01522 538889
