Eye Health

Eye Health

Our practices are fully committed to providing the highest possible standards of eye-care for all our patients. With the use of state-of-the-art equipment, ranging from computerised testing to advanced retinal scans, you can be rest assured the health of your eyes is being well looked after.

Both our practices are now fully independent organisations and we have no funding from 3rd parties like the NHS. This means we can use equipment that far surpasses the technology found on the high street, providing not only a more thorough eye exam but a safer one. Our new Eye-care plan gives you access to this great service whenever you need it from just £4.95pm. Why not book a sight test or contact lens check online, or contact your local David Inman Opticians branch and speak directly to our professional staff members.



Your retina is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means, in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases (for example, stroke, heart disease, hypertension and diabetes) can be seen in the retina. Early detection is essential so treatments can be administered.

How does your optometrist normally examine the retina?

Examining the retina is challenging. Your optometrist looks through your pupil to examine the back of your eye. Traditional viewing methods can be effective, but difficult to perform and are carried out manually without any digital record.


How does the optomap help?

The optomap ultra-wide digital retinal imaging system captures more than 80% of your retina in one panoramic image. Traditional methods typically reveal only 10-15% of your retina at one time. The unique optomap ultra-wide view enhances your optometrist’s ability to detect even the earliest signs of disease that appear on your retina. Seeing most of the retina at once allows your optometrist more time to review your images and educate you about your eye health.

Vision-R™ 800


Prescription accuracy of 0.01 D thanks to the continuous power variations of the sphere and cylinder by 0.01 D increments. Furthermore, the refraction value depends on the vertex distance, the Vision-R 800 phoropter’s back cameras measure to an accuracy of 0.01mm.



In the traditional refraction procedure, values are rounded to 0.25 D at each stage and inaccuracies accumulate. In the precise Digital Infinite Refraction™ procedure, all the refraction is conducted with 0.01 D increments and the final value is rounded to the nearest 0.25 D, with four options for the optometrist to choose from, providing a more reliable result for your patient.

Patient comfort

The smooth power changes and a wider field of vision make refraction very comfortable for the patient. The procedure is shorter and there is no fatigue. All along the refraction procedure, variation steps are adjusted to patient sensitivity making differences easier to perceive and, as a consequence, responses are easier to give. At the end of the test, Vision-R 800 phoropter offers patients the fascinating experience of comparing refractions in simulated real-life conditions.

Easier for the Optometrist

The practitioner reaches the final refraction more quickly than with traditional methods thanks to the continuous and simultaneous changes of sphere power, cylinder axis and cylinder power. Also, the module’s “SMART tests & SMART programs”, which are special algorithms assist the optometrist in conducting the refraction procedure, making it both fast and easy. The practitioner displays the various tests, records the patient's answers and follows the algorithm progression which automatically ends when the value is found.

Visioffice X

Multiple cameras

3 cameras work simultaneously to provide a 3D reconstruction of the eye-lens combination in the front and 3/4 views.


Markers for precision

The markers placed on the frames allow for the statistical analysis of the patient’s natural posture. The precision of the measurements is one-tenth of a millimeter and one-tenth of a degree.

Infra-red cameras

The 2 infra-red cameras provide you with the option of taking measurements  through tinted lenses without removing them.

High definition touch screen

1080x1920 resolution full HD touch screen makes it possible to see the tiniest of differences.

Multi functional device

Dynamic point of sale function via its digital screen to help enhance the image of the practice and offer a more compelling experience in the front of the practice.

Fully interactive

Through vocal and visual instructions, the Visioffice® X gives the patient a greater appreciation of the measurements taken.
