Why choose Jarvis Optometrist for your sight care?

We are an Independent practice and it is something we value, as it gives us the flexibility to respond to your personal needs. For example when selecting frames we are not restricted to particular suppliers, allowing us to obtain virtually any type of frame available. If you’ve seen a frame elsewhere – we can probably source it for you.

As part of the examination we offer advanced tests using the latest equipment as it becomes available. For example, 3D Digital Imaging which records an image of the back of your eye allowing us to detect conditions at an early stage.

Our Practice is a member of Sight Care, an Organisation of Independent Practitioners dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of Professional Care.
