Welcome to Nethercott Opticians
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. In order to ensure the continuing service, from 1st April 2019 we are now a limited company with Alvin Ieong, Chris Bourton and myself as Directors. 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.
It is very important that children have their eyes checked at around 3 years old, as early detection of lazy eye is essential for effective treatment.
Choose Nethercott Opticians for a thorough eye examination with sophisticated instrumentation, including OCT Scan which takes 3-dimensional MRI type images of your retina.
If you have a red, sore eye or sudden change in your vision, we recommend a same day emergency exam. We are qualified to prescribe as necessary or make a same day appointment at a hospital if this is appropriate.
