Eye tests for the Modern Age at J. C. Setton Opticians in London

Your eyesight is one of your greatest assets. Here at J. C. Setton Opticians in Croydon, we’re dedicated to looking after the vision of our local community with the very best clinical eye care available. As an independent optician we make your eye health our number one priority, hiring highly qualified optometry talent and investing in the latest optical technology to offer you the most comprehensive eye examinations in the area.

According to national guidelines, a typical adult between 16 and 69 should have an eye examination every two years, whilst children and adults over 70 should see an optician annually. Our typical eye test in West Wickham lasts about half an hour, and every examination is tailored to your requirements and concerns.

Whether you think you might need glasses for the first time, are worried about changes to your prescription, or have specific concerns about your vision, our experienced team are on hand to offer expert advice and solutions to suit your lifestyle. In addition to checking for changes to your prescription, our examinations analyse how well your eyes work together, your peripheral vision, your intraocular pressure and also check for potential eye diseases.

Alongside traditional optical tests, we are also committed to providing you with cutting edge optical services, including detailed retinal imaging and laser vision correction.


All of our comprehensive eye examinations come with complementary retinal imaging as standard, giving you unprecedented peace of mind when it comes to maintaining your eyesight. Using our state of the art digital retinal camera, we can capture incredibly detailed images of the back of your eyes. These images allow us to accurately monitor your eyes over the years and identify the earliest symptoms of vision-threatening conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes or macular degeneration. This means at every subsequent eye test in West Wickham we are able to compare your images and spot the tiniest changes to your eyes.

And if you’re tired of wearing glasses or using contact lenses? Our laser vision correction services give our customers the opportunity to go without eyewear altogether. We are one of the only opticians in London to offer laser vision correction using one of the most technologically advanced lasers on the market, the Wavelight Allegretto Excimer Laser. This technology enables us to tailor treatment to your visual needs and correct many refractive errors that other lasers cannot.

But if you’re happy to stick with your glasses, our dispensing team will help you find eyewear suited to your life and style. We have plenty of frames to choose from and stock one of the widest ranges of designer eyewear and sunglasses in the capital, with the latest collections from internationally sought-after brands such as Ray Ban, Silhouette, Bench and Lee Cooper. Not to mention our excellent range of high quality contact lenses, including multi-focal varieties.

So if you’re due an eye test, have concerns about your vision or want to discuss your eye care options, book your appointment with us today. Or if you know someone who hasn’t had a check up for a while, we’re offering a free eye test in West Wickham for anyone you refer to J.C. Setton Opticians, your local opticians in Croydon.
