CHRISTMAS OPENING HOURS

We are open up until Friday 21 December at 5.30pm and then closed over Christmas and New Year. Re-opening at 9am on Wednesday 2 January. We would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

WARNING OF BUILDING WORKS

We´re excited to let you know that we have started work on an extension to our practice. As a result, our car park spaces will be very limited until the New Year. Please allow extra time to make it to your appointment. There is a public car park directly opposite the practice where you can park for 30mins / 1hour or more.

Hyperopia

hypermetropiaIn Hypermetropia (long sightedness), the eye is shorter than normal or the cornea is too flat, so that light rays focus behind the retina. Light rays from close objects such as pages of a book cannot be focused on clearly by the retina. Someone with hypermetropic eyes may find their vision is blurred when looking at objects near to them, and for vision to be clearer when looking at far away objects. Placing a plus powered (convex) lens in front of a hypermetropic eye allows the image to be moved forward allowing for correct focus on the retina.

A degree of long-sightedness is common in many people, although this only presents a problem when our ability to see is significantly affected or where headaches and eye strain are common.
