Tinson Opticians

Tinson Opticians

Tinson Opticians is an established independent opticians and contact lens centre. The business was started by John Tinson in 1984 with a small practice in Mill Street and today has grown to be one of the leading independent opticians in Maidstone with a large, loyal customer base serving all ages from 3 to 103 at it’s current location in Middle Row.

Their eye examinations and contact lens consultations are carried out by a small group of fully qualified and experienced optometrists. They allow 30 minutes per patient, for a full and thorough examination. It will start with a full ocular history, general health overview and specific visual requirements. They will then carry out a full refraction, including near vision and VDU requirements, and finish with an examination of the health of the eye area (inside and out). Field Screening, Volk lens and Retinal Photography (£10 additional charge) will ensure that any health problems are detected early and correctly.

Regular eye examinations are necessary to ensure your optimum visual comfort and can often indicate other health problems that may otherwise go undetected. The current price for an eye examination is £27.00, but many people are eligible for NHS tests including children, the over 60’s and those on a low income.
