Nethercott Opticians

I established Nethercott Opticians in 1985. My philosophy has always been to provide the highest standards of clinical care, whilst allowing plenty of time for individual attention. I examine eyes every day except Thursdays when my colleague, Alvin Ieong takes over.

In order to give a thorough eye test, we allow up to 45 minutes for each appointment, and have invested in some of the best available optical technology. We now offer Optical Coherence Tomography which takes a 3-D scan of the macula and optic nerve head which is useful for finding macula problems and early nerve changes from glaucoma. We are also able to prescribe and supply contact lenses. One unique feature of our practice is that both optometrists have qualified as Independent prescribers so we run Emergency clinics every day and can prescribe ocular medications.

Being located in a small village, our overheads are low by comparison with the larger High Street Opticians.
