LATEST UPDATE: Tuesday 14th April 2020

We continue to follow government advice and are unable to carry out any routine eye care. We appreciate this is very difficult for all concerned but the safety of our patients and staff is paramount. But we are still working remotely and are very much available to all our patients whatever your query.

Emergency eye care

It is crucial we play our part to avoid putting added pressure on the NHS at this time, so please do make us your first port of call in an emergency. We are available during working hours, as well as out-of-hours, for any patients requiring URGENT eye care. Whilst we are unable to see you in person, we are able to provide an assessment via phone and discuss your issue. We can then advise on your best course of action. Should your issue require further investigation, then we will refer you to one of the following practices who are staying open:

  • Evans & Jones Opticians, Middleton Street, Llandrindod Wells, LD1 5ET (tel 01597 822143)
  • S G Marshall, 23 High Street, Builth Wells, Powys, LD2 3DL (tel 01597 823400)

FAQ

Your eyes can be affected by a number of common conditions and diseases. Please take a look at our guide for more information.


Eye Health Examination Wales & Low Vision Service Wales

Eye Health Examination Wales and Low Vision Service Wales. An EHEW examination assesses the needs of a patient who requires immediate or urgent eye care. Whereas Low Vision Service Wales is a Welsh Assembly funded scheme to enable Optometrists to determine a person's residual vision, then improve it with various Optical and non-Optical devices.


DVLA Examinations

Although the Government has awarded the contract for routine visual fields examinations to a well known multiple group, there have been many instances where licences have been unnecessarily revoked. We have carried out our own examinations and have reported directly to the DVLA, on behalf of patients. To date we have been successful in having these decisions changed and licenses been reissued in quite a few cases.
