PROVIDING TOTAL EYE CARE

Richard Stokes Optometrists

PRACTICE PHILOSOPHY

We believe that total eye care is best dealt with by one practitioner with whom you can develop a relaxed professional relationship.

This personal attention means we can understand any problems or anxieties you may have regarding both your ocular health and any general health aspects which may affect your eyes. You will normally be seen by your own optometrist except for any emergency treatment.


APPOINTMENTS

Most consultations are by appointment, and we endeavour to arrange appointments at your convenience, though each optometrist is not at the practice every day.

We allow 45 minutes per patient, but some routine examinations will take less than this. However some patients will need considerably longer, and it is not always possible to plan in advance for these situations. If we over-run and you are kept waiting please remember that there is likely to be some important clinical reason, and when your turn arrives you will be afforded the same high standard of eye care.


CONTACT LENSES

We specialise in contact lenses and are at the forefront of new developments, often obtaining new lenses before they are generally available.

We only prescribe the highest quality lenses sourced from around the country - not being tied to one supplier means we can recommend what is clinically best for you. Our experience in contact lenses means that the most difficult prescriptions and previous contact lens failures can often be successfully fitted.


SPECTACLE WEARERS

Whilst we are a contact lens specialist practice we also look after the eye care of many non-contact lens wearers, and are always happy to welcome new patients, whatever their ocular requirements.
