APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE DAILY
Riverside Opticians is a family run, independent practice in the heart of Chester-le-Street. Open for over three years, we offer appointments daily for sight tests and contact lens checks, whilst also running a Minor Eye Conditions clinic.
We have invested in the most modern and up to date testing equipment which helps us in early detection and referral of a wide variety of pathology. This ensures the speediest and most favourable outcomes for our patients.
Our two Optometrists each have over 20 years experience, having worked all over the UK and even as far as Australia, whilst our helpful staff have been dispensing spectacles for decades.
We're passionate about offering our patients a first class service. We're proud of our 5 star reviews on both Google and facebook and like nothing more than hearing from a new patient that we've been recommended to them.
Our extended appointment times allow us to discuss the issues that are important to you, whilst giving us the opportunity to investigate thoroughly and explain our results in a timely manner.
We cater for both private and NHS patients and thanks to advanced remote glazing technology can offer a next day service in some cases, whilst even our varifocals supplied by Hoya can take as little as 2 days to arrive.
Our range of frames is carefully chosen to suit all tastes and budgets and is regularly refreshed to reflect changing styles. As an independent practice we're able to access ranges of frames,including designers only available to the independent market, we'll make sure with your new eyewear you stand out from the crowd.
If you wear prescription glasses, you must be familiar with the array of problems it brings. From water droplets on a rainy day to fogging up when the oven door opens, it can be frustrating wearing spectacles. However , these days most people can have the luxury of clear vision without the need for spectacles by wearing contact lenses instead. Whether you're looking for a complete break from your spex or just something different for a night out or special event, there are contact lenses to suit your needs.
At Riverside Opticians, we provide specialised eye tests for contact lenses to get you started with your glasses-free journey. Our opticians in Chester-le-Street will assess your eye health for contact lenses using a slit lamp, we'll make sure the lenses are the right material and fit to maximise both vision and comfort. You will also receive guidance on how to wear and take care of your contact lenses to make sure your contact lens journey is as safe as possible.
Our newest cutting edge piece of technology, the Topcon Maestro 2 allows us to see layers of the retina that were previously hidden to us. This can allow us early detection of changes in these layers of the retina that often develop into sight threatening conditions like Macular degeneration.
