Any Questions?

Are you qualified?
Simon Small is a fully qualified optometrist registered with the General Optical Council, abiding by the Federation of Dispensing and Manufacturing Opticians Code of Conduct for Domiciliary Providers, an NHS contractor, and insured with the Association of Optometrists.

Do I have to buy glasses?
I will recommend new glasses where they will improve your vision. However, there is no obligation to buy.

Do I need to prepare for your visit?
No, although it is useful if you have your present glasses handy.

May I have a relative or friend present when you visit?
Absolutely, yes.

How long does it take?
I will be with you for approximately 40 minutes.

Do you have a price list?
Yes, just ask for my complete, up to date one.

I am having problems with my eyes but I am not due an eye exam yet.
Please call me to discuss it.

How much does an eye exam cost, private and NHS?
In most cases this is FREE. To visit an individual at home my private call out fee is 65 which includes the eye exam.
