The Centre for Eyecare Excellence offers a number of clinics where our third year students will carry out comprehensive eye examinations under the direct supervision of qualified optometry staff and, if required, undertake a detailed assessment of the health of your eyes and screening for diseases that affect the eyes and vision.
The eye examinations are very thorough and closely supervised and therefore may take up to two hours to complete. Eye examinations carried out by our students are free of charge and discounts will apply on spectacles (20 per cent) and contact lenses (10 per cent) purchased here following these appointments.
It is also possible to have a sight test carried out by one of our qualified optometrists. These cost £25, or £15 for University of Plymouth staff/students (free with NHS eligibility).
Before your appointment, make sure you have had a look at our appointment checklist so that our students may provide you with the best possible care.
Please see below for full details of other clinics and services that we provide.
