We’re focused on your vision. Driving eye care forwards with cutting edge technology and award-winning dispensing

Award-Winning eyecare driving quality in optics and focusing on your vision with cutting edge technology

The UK law states that all drivers must be able to read a licence plate at 20.5m in clear weather conditions. While wearing their spectacles or contact lenses (if required) whilst driving. But did you know that in addition to this there are specific visual field requirements relating to driving standards? If you drive with an uncorrected vision problem or eye condition, you risk a fine of £1000. Or having points added to your licence or in some counties having your licence revoked.

In some cases, you are required to inform the DVLA that you have developed an eye condition. You may then be required to take more regular eye tests with reports being sent on to the DVLA. Road safety charity Brake, have been campaigning for many years for zero tolerance of impaired driving and encourage drivers to get their eyes tested regularly.

At Allegro Optical Opticians we can offer in-depth specialist eye examinations. Therefore ensuring that you will meet all of the required DVLA visual requirements. We will check both your central peripheral (side) vision. Should you need it, will prescribe and recommend corrective eyewear. Our dispensing opticians will assist you in choosing suitable frames and lenses to get you on the road again. So maybe you’re thinking it’s time to book an appointment for an eye examination?

Why should you choose Allegro Optical for your eye examination

Not only are we a national award-winning independent family owned and run eyecare practice, we always put people first. When you visit Allegro Optical for your eye examination you will receive a warm welcome before having your eyes by one of our team of the most highly qualified optometrists. All our optical professionals are fully qualified and registered UK Optometrists and Dispensing Opticians.

We use a range of advanced equipment to test your eyes. Our advanced 3D OCT eye scanner (Optical Coherence Tomography)  is one of the most advanced optical scanners in the world. We recommend the 3D OCT Scan to most of our patients. It is the gold standard OCT as used by many hospitals. An OCT scan is a simple and completely non-contact examination of the soft tissues of the eye. It is an extremely valuable test enabling early detection of any problems, enabling better treatment options and improved visual outcomes. The images we take will be saved on your record.  They can then be used for comparison during future visits allowing us to detect even the smallest changes.


Your prescription is fully guaranteed when dispensed by Allegro Optica. You will be offered a variety of solutions to best suit your needs. If you are not completely satisfied by your examination or your vision correction, no problem! Just come back to see us and we will do our utmost to resolve any issues you may be experiencing at no extra cost.
