About us – Family Eye Care – OCT Exam in Harrow
Local optometrist Abbas Jaffer established Family Eyecare in 1993 as a community based, family-run practice, with the aim of providing a high quality, professional service at a reasonable cost. Fast forward almost 30 years and over 15,000 people in the local area trust us with their eye health - and this is something we don't take lightly!
Abbas graduated from City University in 1991 and trained at Moorfields and Central Middlesex Hospitals. He is an experienced optometrist with special accreditation to manage glaucoma and diabetic eye disease.
For the last few years, the practice has been run by Abbas' sons Shaahid and Mujtaba, both also graduates of City University and highly-trained optometrists. They are joined by several friendly and highly-competent staff, some of whom have been with the practice for 25 years!
At Family Eyecare, we believe what sets us apart is the personal touch. Our eye examinations are thorough and detailed; we will always take the time to address any issues you're facing and give you enough time to ask any questions you may have.
We have built close links with local GPs and hospital eye departments over the years, allowing us to offer the very best in eye care for those facing more complicated issues.
We have always invested in the latest technology for eye examinations. We are now able to assess long term macular health, take detailed retinal photos and scans, screen efficiently for glaucoma, as well as gather more information about the health of your eyes than ever before.
We have recently invested in an OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) scanner. This state of the art device uses lightscan technology to image the back of the eye in incredible detail, similar to an ultrasound or X-ray, but without any harmful radiation. This equipment is similar to that used by eye hospitals such as Moorfields, and is advisable for anyone with a complex ocular history or who has a family history of several common eye conditions. It has been proven to detect eye conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration many years before routine checks.
Our dispensing staff will take time to advise and demonstrate to you the most suitable lenses from international and UK-based suppliers for your spectacles prescription. We stock a vast range of spectacle frames that will exceed your expectations in terms of choice, design and price!
We also supply and fit all brands and varieties of soft and hard contact lenses.
