Eye tests in Heswall

At Eye 2 Eye, we take your eye test very seriously. That is why we allow at least 30 minutes for each examination, which is much longer than most other opticians.


We have invested heavily in the latest equipment to ensure that every part of your sight test is as thorough and accurate as possible.

What happens in an eye test?




Before your eye exam begins our team will guide you through a series of preliminary examinations.

We will estimate your prescription and measure your intra-ocular pressures in order to give the optometrist all the information they require to give you a thorough examination. We may assess your visual fields at this point.


Our team member will also run through a few quick questions with you to ensure we fully understand your eye care needs.

The Optometrist

The actual eye examination itself is conducted by one of our highly experienced optometrists. The main parts of the eye examination include:

  • A discussion of your eye health

  • Formulation of your prescription for your spectacles or contact lenses

  • A thorough check of your eye health

  • A summary of the optician's findings, along with recommendations and after-care.

Having your eyes assessed quickly can make a huge difference for your eyesight and eye health. If we feel you need further medical assistance, we can make a referral for you.

Cataract assessment

We offer a pre and post-cataract operation monitoring service as part of a community ophthalmology scheme whereby we can support our local hospitals by providing care at our practice.


By monitoring the progress of your vision and eye health in a series of appointments, we can make sure you get the best possible outcomes prior to and post-surgery, if surgery is recommended.


Each appointment is managed by one of our expert optometrists who have years of experience working with people with cataracts.  

Glaucoma refinement

At Eye 2 Eye Opticians, we are able to provide a glaucoma monitoring service on behalf of your glaucoma specialist if you have been diagnosed with glaucoma or ocular hypertension as part of the Wirral’s Glaucoma Referral Refinement Scheme.  

If there is a change to your eye condition, we will be able to bring these issues to the attention of the consultant glaucoma specialist on your behalf. 

If you are diagnosed with glaucoma or have been advised that you are at risk of developing glaucoma, you are entitled to free eye tests on the NHS.

If you have any questions, please contact our team for more information
