Deterioration in your eyesight can be gradual and often go unnoticed. That is why a regular eye test can help detect certain conditions early and maintain optimum vision.


Cataract is when the clear lens inside your eye becomes misty and yellow. The process is gradual and usually occurs as we get older. Young people may also develop cataract, through eye injury. Medical conditions such as diabetes or certain medication can also cause cataract. You may notice your vision becoming blurry, suffer from glare from headlights or street lights as well as colours becoming more faded and yellow. During an eye test, we can help detect and monitor any cataract formation. The optometrist will also be able to refer you through your GP, for removal of cataract, if it is necessary.



Glaucoma is an eye condition that damages the optic nerve, which connects your eyes to your brain. The damage usually occurs by build up of pressure of fluid inside your eye.

A series of tests are needed to diagnose glaucoma. At Mandeville Opticians, we carry out the necessary tests
