Welcome To WildEyes Vision Clinic

Hello! My name is Nisha Tanna and I am the proud Practice Owner of WildEyes Vision Clinic. I took over the practice in 2013 from Mr Jim Richards who successfully ran it for over 43 years.

My team and I are passionate about what we do. To ensure the best possible standard of care, every patient is guided through each step of their eye journey by myself professionally.

Being an independent practice allows us complete professional freedom over many larger chains and our reputation has mainly grown on personal recommendations.

Our super enthusiastic team look forward to welcoming you at the practice.

Our Aim

Our aim is to offer you a truly individual service and an excellent level of eye care. We have invested in high quality ophthalmic technology to ensure that our eye examinations are of the very highest standards. Appointments typically last over thirty minutes allowing our qualified optometrists to give a comprehensive eye examination. We welcome both private and NHS patients.

History About the Practice

The practice was first established in 1946 by Mr A.L Haydn-Walker. For the past 43 years the practice has been successfully running as J.B Richards Optometrists. Mr Richards has now semi-retired therefore the practice is under new management, however he does still visit the practice.

As we are an independent practice we have no restrictions regarding our frame suppliers allowing us to stock many bespoke designs.

Glasses Lenses

Following your eye examination our optometrists will give you expert advice on choosing the best lenses for your vision. Your prescription, occupation, lifestyle and hobbies will be considered during your lens selection consultation.

Lens Type

  • Single vision lenses are prescribed for distance, intermediate or reading correction
  • Bifocals can combine distance, intermediate and reading but with a visible line
  • Varifocals have no visible line and blend together the distance, intermediate and reading correction.

Lens Options

  • Scratch resistant hard coated lenses giving more durability
  • Anti-reflection coatings make life more comfortable by reducing glare as well as improving the cosmetic appearance of your glasses
  • Transitions / Photochromic lenses darken in the presence of UV light. This overcomes the need to carry prescription sunglasses as well as giving you protection from harmful UV radiation
  • Hi-Index modern technology allows your lenses to be made thinner and lighter. This makes your glasses more comfortable to wear and improves the cosmetic appearance
  • Tints can reduce glare problems but we also offer fashion tints. Available in almost any colour and any level of intensity. Fixed and graduated tints can be supplied
  • Polarised lenses improve vision by dramatically reducing glare
  • Polycarbonate lenses are high impact resistant and are suitable where enhanced eye safety is a required.

Contact Lenses

Contact lenses give the option of having a different look but can also be beneficial during sports and outdoor activities. At Wildeysvision Eye Clinic our optometrists are fully experienced to fit most types of contact lenses and we have access to all the major suppliers and many specialised laboratories.

To assess your suitability to contact lenses an eye examination followed by a contact lens consultation is required. The consultation will include the following:

  • Comprehensive assessment of the cornea and anterior eye structures
  • Discussion of your needs and hence selection on lens type
  • A short trial with the lenses selected for you
  • An assessment on the fitting of the lens and visions obtained
  • A teach on insertion and removal and handling of the lenses
  • Tuition on use, care and a personalised aftercare regime.

Contact Lens Types

  • Soft daily disposables; ideal for occasional or regular use. Hygienic and hassle-free as no cleaning involved
  • Soft monthly disposables; ideal for regular wear. Vast technology advances allowing excellent vision, increased comfort and increased oxygen permeability
  • Soft toric lenses; available as daily, monthly or ‘annual’ replacement dependant on your prescription
  • Extended soft lenses; convenient allowing up to 30 days continuous wear with high oxygen levels to the cornea
  • Gas Permeable; high levels of oxygen permeability attainable. Good long term corneal response

Eyecare

Eye examinations not only assess whether you require a visual correction but also evaluate the health of the eye, which can reflect your general health.

Every individuals needs are different so we select the tests most appropriate using the latest technology.
The main stages to the eye examination include:

History

A thorough history allows us to determine the reason for the patient’s visit. This affects the main focus of the examination. General health/medications, ocular history and associated family history will also influence the subsequent tests used during the eye examination.

Retinoscopy

Often patients express their concern about whether their responses are‘reliable’ when their prescription is evaluated. However we can make an accurate measurement of the prescription using a streak of light moved across the patient’s pupil. This is done using an optical instrument called the retinoscope. Our optometrists are highly skilled in interpreting results given by the retinoscope. Such objective testing allows the optometrist to determine the spectacle correction of a young child and with patients who are unable to communicate.

Ocular Muscle Assessment

Eye movement tests are utilised to assess how well the twelve eye muscles are working. Additionally binocular vision can be examined. This checks how well the eyes are working together.

Subjective Refraction

The prescription can be confirmed after retinoscopy by asking the patient to interpret various images and comment on whether the first or second lens makes the letters on the chart clearer.

Health Examinations

The eye is the only organ in the human body which allows direct observation of the blood vessels without surgical intervention. This is why many vascular conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes are first highlighted by an optometrist. Some of the health assessment tests used during the eye examination include:

Slit-lamp biomicroscope

This instrument allows a detailed inspection of the external eye and is helpful for examining any signs of cataract and any disease of the lids, lashes, tear film, cornea, conjunctiva and iris.

Ophthalmoscopy

An ophthalmoscope allows the optometrist to look through the patient’s pupil to the back of the retina. Many other ocular structures can be examined allowing the possible diagnosis of multiple diseases/conditions. These may be ocular (such as glaucoma, retinal detachments and retinal tumours) or systemic (such as multiple sclerosis and brain lesions/haemorrhages) and occasionally dilating eye drops are required to achieve a good view of the back of the eye.

Other Tests

The patients presenting signs and symptoms as well as their age and family history will imply that other supplementary tests often need to be carried out. This may include intraocular pressures (checking the pressure of the eyes), visual field screening (peripheral vision assessment), colour vision screening and stereo (3D) vision measurement.
