Overnight Vision Correction...
Interested in Nocturnal lenses? The surprising thing is that the lenses are worn overnight, removed in the morning and clear vision is achieved during the day with no optical aids at all! Nocturnal lenses utilise the principle of orthokeratology (Ortho-K) to gently re-shape the cornea to provide clear vision. Precision measurements involving some 20,000 points ensure an individual lens design tailored to your eye.
Nocturnal lenses are suitable for children and adults alike. At a daily cost of less than your favourite coffee they make good economic sense too.
McPherson Optometry are able to offer an automatic regular replacement service to ensure lenses are only worn when in peak condition, giving the highest levels of comfort and visual clarity. The use of fresh lenses in optimum condition encourages healthy eyes and reduces the incidence of irritation and infection.

Spotlight On....Dry Eyes
Do your eyes feel gritty, watery, burning or irritated? Dry eyes are an increasingly common problem often made worse by constant use involving computers, tablets and smartphones. At our Private Dry Eye Clinic our specialised optometrists will perform a detailed assessment of the tear film, eyelid gland function and corneal surface, allowing us to identify the cause of the symptoms. This will be carried out using the latest hi-tech equipment including Bleph-Ex. There are differing causes of dry eye, and we can recommend tailored treatment options. You can discuss whether a full assessment is indicated with your optometrist or book a dry eye assessment directly with reception.
Eye care is a high tech business. Gone are the days of cardboard letter charts and hand held lights to examine the eye. The modern optometric practice is equipped with high tech microscopes, computerised letter charts and even the ability to take a sectional scan of the eye and examine the layers of the retina.
Our optometrists are fully trained in both using and interpreting the technology to help make reasoned decisions with you about your vision and the health of your eyes.
