Eye Examinations

Regular eye tests are an important part of your general health care routine. Not only does the full eye examination check your vision, but it also detects signs of other possible underlying health problems. Here at Respectacle Company, we have invested in the latest technology to offer all of our customers a full and comprehensive eye examination. Everyone should have their eyes tested by a qualified optometrist at least every two years, although some medical conditions require more frequent checkups, which your optician should advise you about.

When you book an eye test, our fully qualified and experienced optometrist will carry out a full and comprehensive examination of your eyes. This examination normally takes between 30-40 minutes, during which time they will carry out a full range of clinical tests and examinations to check your vision and the health of your eyes. We aim to deliver an exceptional standard of eye care and we deliver this high standard regardless of our customers’ budgets. All of our customers receive the same amount of time and care, regardless of whether they are a private patient or entitled to a free NHS examination.

Contact Lenses

As the world of contact lenses develops and more products are launched onto the market, it increases the number of people we are able to offer contact lenses to. So, if you’ve not been able to wear contact lenses in the past but would like to give them a try, it’s worth asking us to see if anything has changed. Whether you’re an existing contact lens wearer or are considering contacts for the first time, Respectacle Company is the go-to place for contact lenses in Market Harborough.

We have a large portfolio of contact lenses available including daily, monthly, and gas permeable lenses. Most of which come in single vision, toric and multifocal prescriptions. And as an independent opticians, we are not restricted by what products we can offer. With a selection of different materials available we can successfully fit most patients with a suitable product for their prescription and lifestyle needs, ensuring comfort and clarity. We also hold a stock of contact lenses in our store, so many of our customers can be supplied with contact lenses without having to wait.

OCT Scans

Having a comprehensive eye examination checks your vision and the health of your eyes. The examination can also tell us a lot about your overall health. At Respectacle Company our customers’ health and wellbeing are of the utmost importance to us. That’s why we have invested in Optical Coherence Tomography imaging technology, also known as an OCT scan. Our hospital-grade equipment takes an advanced and detailed scan of the layers of your eyes. This in-depth examination produces a comprehensive 3D scan of your eye which is similar to an ultrasound scan.

We believe regular OCT scans are an essential ongoing health record of the condition of your eyes. These records are a great benchmark to work from when assessing changes or abnormalities within your eyes. Many common eye conditions are hereditary, can be triggered through the long-term use of some medications or through lifestyle. But if diagnosed at an early stage through an OCT scan, the condition can be successfully managed or prevented. Our fully qualified and experienced optometrist has undergone extensive training in OCT analysis to ensure that we offer a full and comprehensive diagnosis of each consultation.

Seiko Lenses

We’re proud to be a Seiko lens specialist. In our opinion, they are one of the best lens companies in the world, producing the highest quality optical lenses. Seiko is committed to tailoring each type of lens perfectly so that the Seiko lens wearer experiences the best possible vision in all settings, tasks, and occasions.
