Do I Need To Bring Old Prescriptions To My Screening?

Mr Glenn Carp – “If the patient can coordinate, we will be able to advise you on the benefits of bringing your old prescription history into the clinic prior to initial screening.  In some patients it is of great value, but in turn, we are often able to contact your local optometrist directly to obtain these values for you.”

Screenings Explained Further…

Many patients have asked if they need to bring past prescriptions to the initial screening. While past prescriptions are helpful, we do not rely on these to plan or treat, and will always perform our own tests based on our screening protocol.


Mr Glenn Carp explains why it could be beneficial to bring prescriptions to your screening.

Very straight forward process. Staff reassurance throughout relieved any concerns. Results as good as anticipated –  slight loss of distance focus was as forecasted and expected. Glad I went ahead with the treatment and would recommend to others. Not used my glasses since the operation.– George Jarrett
