Eye Tests

Using the very latest technology, our specialised optometrists are dedicated to your clinical care. Everyone receives the time and care needed to achieve the best possible vision and eye health. Eye tests are £45 - or free with NHS entitlement. We also offer an enhanced assessment of eye health involving a series of specialized scans of the eye using Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) for an additional £30. Pop in or book an appointment to be a part of The Specky Wren experience.


Our state-of-the-art testing equipment is clinically of the highest standard. Operated and interpreted by our highly qualified and experienced optometrists, the result is an exceptional standard of eye care, as well as allowing for early and accurate diagnosis of disease. Patients also benefit from our strong links to Sussex Eye Hospital.


The Specky Wren aims to serve all of Brighton's diverse communities. Our ethos is to provide the same high standard of clinical care, whatever your budget.


We combine our expertise with a fun and friendly environment. Our optometrists take the time to listen to your needs and to address any concerns that you may have. If there's something extra to discuss - specific symptoms or worries - we'll be there for you, providing a kind and empathetic experience.


An eye test can reveal a lot about eye health - and health in general. We screen for all eye diseases, including glaucoma and macular degeneration, as well as for systemic health ailments like high blood pressure and diabetes. Tests are methodical and clinically driven. Your health is our responsibility.


Together, our expert optometrists form an experienced team dedicated to the clinical care of every patient. Our high-tech computer system means all procedures and patient records are integrated, so that whichever of our friendly team you see, we can guarantee a highly professional and enjoyable experience that you can trust.


We extend a warm welcome to everyone entitled to free eye tests and/or optical NHS vouchers - for example those 18 or under and in full time education, over 60 or on a low income. NHS patients receive the same high standard of care as our private patients, in keeping with our ethos of serving our community.
