Eye Examinations

At R.A. Glass, we believe in precision. Our eye examinations utilise cutting-edge technology to ensure accurate prescriptions and thorough health assessments.

OCT Scanning

Experience the next generation of vision care with our state-of-the-art technology. 
This non-invasive imaging technique provides detailed cross-sectional images of your retinas and optic nerves, aiding in early detection and monitoring of conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma.  


Northern Ireland Primary Eyecare Assessment and Referral Service (NI PEARS) is an NHS service we provide for patients who develop a sudden eye problem.

Night Lenses

Night lenses are contact lenses that naturally, and harmlessly, correct your vision while you sleep. When you wake, you can enjoy the benefits of perfect vision all day, without needing glasses or daytime contact lenses.

We rely on our sight in all aspects of daily life and therefore an eye examination is essential to monitor eye health and maintain the best vision possible.

We strive to provide the most thorough eye examinations using the latest technology and equipment so you, the patient, have full confidence in our findings and recommended management.
