Here at Auerbach & Steele, clinical excellence is provided by a team of highly qualified optometrists and dispensing opticians who have been with Auerbach & Steele for many years. They are subject to programmes of continuing education and further qualifications to continually develop their skills.
Customers have the confidence that they will see the same optometrist on every visit to ensure continuity in their eye care. This clinical expertise is backed up by the most sophisticated equipment available in each of our three consulting rooms.
All examinations are carried out by an optometrist, there is no pre-screening by unqualified “Optical Assistants” as is commonplace elsewhere. It is sometimes necessary to carry out a specialist scan following a routine eye examination. We invest heavily in the latest technology, having recently purchased the latest, cutting edge Spectralis OCT scanner.
An Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a hospital-quality scan that uses cutting-edge technology to look more closely at your retina. Many common eye diseases can creep up on you, without any significant symptoms. In particular, an OCT scan can help to detect eye conditions such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
Digital images will be stored and compared at subsequent visits to show any changes in conditions. Your optometrist will advise if an OCT scan is recommended.
As a mark of the level of clinical excellence, several London hospitals refer patients to Auerbach & Steele for detailed examinations and many of London’s leading ophthalmologists come to Auerbach & Steele for their own eye care.
We can treat a number of conditions in our eye clinic here in Chelsea. Dry eyes is a condition that is becoming increasingly prevalent. The widespread use of air conditioning & central heating and increasingly, the time we spend looking at screens, have led to this increase. We can help determine and treat the cause where possible and treat the symptoms with a range of measures.
The rigorous training undertaken by our optometrists and dispensing opticians coupled with their many years of experience means you can be confident you’re in safe hands here in our Chelsea based eye clinic.
At Auerbach & Steele, we ensure that our eye clinic consistently offers the highest levels of customer care. If we identify any issues during the eye examination we have the expert skills and knowledge to advise on the best course of action.
