I established Nethercott Opticians in 1985. My philosophy has always been to provide the highest standards of clinical care, whilst allowing plenty of time for individual attention. We have 3 optometrists. I work Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Alvin Ieong is here Thursday and Saturday morning. Melissa Patel is our Friday Optometrist.
In order to give a thorough eye test, we allow up to 45 minutes for each appointment, and have invested in some of the best available optical technology. We now offer Optical Coherence Tomography which takes a 3-D scan of the macula and optic nerve head which is useful for finding macula problems and early nerve changes from glaucoma. We are also able to prescribe and supply contact lenses. One unique feature of our practice is that Alvin and I are qualified as Independent prescribers, and Melissa is training for this. This enables us to run Emergency clinics every day and can prescribe ocular medications.
Being located in a small village, our overheads are low by comparison with the larger High Street Opticians. We are therefore are able to be extremely competitive in all our pricing, whilst offering the latest designer eyewear.
The large premises have allowed space to include other medical practitioners who share my ideals for high standards of patient care. We now have a Podiatrist, Dietitian, Acupuncturist and Hearing Aid Consultant working with us. Introductions to these practitioners can be found in the menu above.
Feel free to call us on 01737 813600 or call in to the Practice at any time.
