What is Optomap Retinal Imaging

Book an eye test at your local independent optician in the heart of Mid Sussex.

At Hassocks Eyecare, we provide a full range of eye tests for both NHS and private patients, using the latest equipment and technology to provide the best quality eye care in the Mid Sussex area.

We’re an established and respected practice, offering exceptional service from start to finish.


NHS eye tests

You can book a standard NHS funded eye test with us. One of our experienced Optometrists will use the latest equipment to examine the health of your eyes and test your sight.

If you book an NHS eye test, you’ll have the option to upgrade your appointment to include Optomap, which provides ultra wide-field retinal imaging, at a cost of £30 (£5 for children). You can read more about Optomap here.

All adults over 60 and children under 16 are eligible for an NHS sight test. Please call us on 01273 843946 for advice if you are unsure if you qualify.

Our eye tests are child friendly, with pictures instead of letters for very small children and special tests to check your child’s visual development, such as 3D vision.


Private eye tests

Our eye tests include a full eye examination to check the health of your eyes and test your sight, updating your prescription for glasses if required. Our private eye tests include ultra wide-field retinal imaging with Optomap as standard.

We’re proud of our team of highly trained and experienced Optometrists and Opticians, enabling us to provide the best quality eyesight tests in the Hassocks and Hurstpierpoint area.
