Minor Eye Conditions Service – FREE to access*

This is an NHS funded service for all that are *registered with a GP within East Kent . If you have a sudden concern with the health of your eyes or if your GP advises you to attend – you are entitled to an appointment with our Optometrists who are specifically accredited to provide this service. Visiting a community based practice offers ease of access to highly trained health professionals with specialised equipment, with the aim of helping to manage your eye complaint. 

Eye Examinations – NHS and Private

At Eye Folk Opticians, we really do care about your eyes. We offer an extremely thorough eye examination, which fully checks the health of your eyes as well as finding out more about your vision and the correction you may need. During an eye examination we look for any signs of eye conditions such as Cataracts, Glaucoma and Macular Degeneration. A sight test can also detect other health issues such as diabetes and high blood pressure.

Our standard eye examination appointment is 45 minutes, which is much longer than most Opticians. This allows us to really understand what you need from your vision and to recommend solutions specifically tailored to you. Fundus photography (a photo of the back of your eyes) is included as standard and assists our Optometrists to take an in depth look at the health of your eyes.

All this plus more for just £30 (or free if eligible for NHS sight test)

Contact Lenses

Contact Lenses can be a fantastic alternative to spectacles. Most people are suitable for contact lenses – our Optometrists can advise you of your suitability.

Our Optometrists are very experienced in fitting and providing aftercare for all contact lens types. (RGP, Soft, Daily, Reuseable, Extended wear, Multifocals plus more!)

If you have not worn contact lenses before, we can take time to discuss options with you. We have access to all contact lens manufacturers, enabling us to provide you with your ideal lens solution.

We have a direct debit scheme in place, which provides regular home delivery of your contact lenses (and solutions where necessary)

A contact lens fitting is just £30 and includes a free trial of contact lenses

An aftercare is just £30 (or free if you are on our direct debit scheme)

Children’s Eye Care

Good eyesight is crucial for a child’s development, both at school and socially

Eye Folk is very child – friendly and our optometrists are experienced at testing the eyes of children of all ages. They do not need to be able to read/write/communicate in order for their eyes to be tested as we have many ways to check.
