Eye Examinations

Your eyes are the most complex organ in your body after your brain, so we'll never rush an appointment or take short cuts with your examinations. We allow up to an hour for each appointment, so you and your eyes get the personal care and attention they need. 

Advanced technology 

We’re always looking for ways to give you extra support and reassurance. By investing in the most advanced technology, we are able to offer the widest range of comprehensive and comfortable eye examinations available. 

These include Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) eye tests, which provide a detailed 3D scan of the back of your eye. Using this, your optometrist is able to look at every layer of your eye tissue and identify a range of problems, which a regular examination might miss. Many conditions identified by OCT, such as macular degeneration, central serious retinopathy and glaucoma, are easily treated if picked up early.   

Personal advice
When we've taken a thorough look at your eyes, your optometrist or dispensing optician will discuss our recommendations with you at length. Whether you need bespoke glasses, sunglasses, lens options or contact lenses, we'll make sure you have the information you need to make the right decisions.

We’re also able to offer dry eye treatment on-site and provide referrals for specialist treatment or corrective surgery. When you leave CG Optical, we want you to feel thoroughly supported, well informed and confident in the choices you've made. 

Swift referrals
Through our partnership with Spa Medica (NHS), we're also able to offer quick referrals for patients who require treatment for conditions such as cataracts and many more.

We'll help coordinate your treatment and will oversee all your aftercare. You won't be left waiting for the support you need and have that added reassurance from a team who know you and your eyes. 

Complete care

Our single aim is to give you the vision you need and deserve. While technology is crucial, we know how important it is to sit with our customers and chat through the options that are right for them.

Our customers tell us that when they come to CG Optical, they feel that we wrap our arms around them. It's something we're very proud of. Your eyes are precious and powerful, and we want nothing more than to help you take care of yours.

Your glasses should feel like they are an extension of you - complementing your brow line and the shape of your face so your eyes can shine brightly. Claire will take into consideration your complexion, bone structure and personality to help you find that perfect pair. 

Whether you have a defined style in mind or want to try a completely new look, Claire has an inimitable skill in matching clients with eyewear they love. She often gets the perfect pair first time, but we're happy to spend as much time with you as you need. We won't be satisfied until you are.

SUE GODBER
Once again thank you for my glasses and your great service. You must remember my first visit to you following a recommendation. You and your great team, Nick the optician ( great guy, knows his stuff) Becky, Tasha and Jane have looked after me, nothing too much trouble and all so very easy.A person who dreaded the optician more than the dentist! Not anymore. I don’t want to ramble on but simply until you’ve experienced what you do you don’t realise how others don’t compare. Best advice to anyone, your eye sight is to important to get it wrong, you need to choose wisely who is your optician and I firmly by experience have definitely found the right one in yourselves. So happy with my glasses, can see long distance and my computer screen without taking my glasses off. Oh and this going dark in the sunlight thing, absolutely amazing, no carrying 2 pairs of glasses, feeling liberated. Sorry this is such a long message but I I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am. I’m happy to give feedback to anyone.

From the warm welcome upon arrival and stunning interior design, to the highly skilled delivery of clinical services and superb choice of exclusive, boutique & niche collections of frames rarely seen outside of the capital, indeed every aspect is first class.
Owner/Manager Claire and her team provide a highly personal & bespoke service, identify their patients needs, challenge their style boundaries and expertly guide them through the customer journey to achieve stunning end results.

C G Optical’s clientele consistently leave their premises walking a few inches higher with their new found style, in beautiful eyewear and wearing beaming smiles, confident in the assurance of an equally dedicated aftercare service.
The combination of futuristic cutting edge technology and the fine service style of yesteryear is the secret to success of what is arguably one of the best optical stores in the country."
