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 throughout January and at the beginning of February. 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.

Eye Examination

You’ll never regret an eye test

A comprehensive eye examination forms the basis of everything we do at Simmons Optometrists.

so191It not only checks that your vision is at its best but can also flag up general health conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, as well as eye conditions, such as glaucoma, cataract and macular degeneration.

It is for this reason that everyone should have regular eye tests, regardless of whether or not they wear glasses.

My optometrist never rushes the examination and is always ready to explain any queries. Always a positive visit and I feel safe and happy with her care.” – Mrs JS., Rutland
