Crystal Optometry is contracted to provide ophthalmic services for NHS Lothian. Everyone in Scotland is eligible for NHS eye care and "primary" examinations are allowed every
- 24 months for those aged between 16 and 60
- 12 months for children.
If a patient has unexpected symptoms they can still be seen and a less extensive "secondary" examination is allowed.
In pursuing great eyecare, Crystal Optometry has invested in technology which exceed NHS requirements. NHS upgrades are recommended for adults and a fee of £40.00 is payable. However additional fees are not conditional on the provision of NHS services.
Contact Lens examinations, Visual Stress assessments and "Second Opinions" are charged at £80 as they are not NHS subsidised.
Visual Stress follow-ups are £35.
Patients who wish more frequent full examinations have the option to join EyePlan - a monthly subscription service that allows unrestrictive care and favourable reductions in all costs for £13.90 / month.
Please ensure you have enough time for your appointment :
for short contact lens check-ups and follow ups
for full eye exams and detailed assessments
