PRIVATE PLANS

THE WAY WE ARE DELIVERING

YOUR EYE CARE IS CHANGING FROM OCTOBER

We have taken the decision to switch to a ‘private-only’ model, signalling an end to our association with the GOS (NHS). This is something we have been considering for some time and we believe that now is the right time to make this change, for your benefit. 

We passionately believe that comprehensive eye care should be affordable and accessible to all and this switch will allow you to benefit from essential continuous care. 

WHY ARE

WE DOING IT?

The standard NHS ‘sight test’ makes up a small fraction of our comprehensive eye examination. It hasn’t changed for many years whereas optometry has moved on significantlyWe want you to receive the very best standard of care. 

We strongly believe that everyone should benefit from the advances in technology that our state-of-the-art diagnostic suite provides. By moving to a ‘private-only’ model, you will be able to take advantage of the extra levels of assessment covered in our comprehensive eye examination. 

This involves a complete diagnostic evaluation by an optometrist and clinical technician and is an extended appointment of approximately 1 hour. No stone is left unturned. Put simply, there is no better way to look after your eye health. 

HOW WILL

IT AFFECT YOU?

All patients will now switch to one of our ‘eyeQ’ care plans.  (If you are already a member of one of our eyeQ plans, the rest of your family will be able to benefit from our family reductions.) This means you will become an even more valued member of the TK&S family, with added flexibility and care available whenever you need it. You will no longer have to pay separately for an eye examination, all your routine and emergency eye care costs are covered in an affordable monthly fee.   

WHAT WILL BE

INCLUDED IN THE CARE PLAN?

There will be 2 plans for you to choose from, both offering the very best of clinical care. 

eyeQ Classic is £11.00 per month and includes: 

  • Annual eye examination worth £150.00
  • Emergency appointments 
  • Video consultations if deemed necessary 
  • Reduced fees on specialist services 
  • MOT for spectacles or sunglasses  
  • Unlimited spectacle cleaner refills 

eyeQ Enhanced is £14 per month and includes all of the above, plus: 

  • Reduced prices on spectacles 
  • Reduced prices on sunglasses
  • Reduced prices on drops/supplements 
  • Reduced prices on accessories. 
WHAT ABOUT THE

REST OF THE FAMILY?

We appreciate your loyalty and commitment to the practice and are able to offer the following benefits for additional members of your family. 

Classic Enhanced
Additional member – Adult 31+ £8.00 £11.00

WHEN DOES

THIS COME IN?

The switch is effective from October, but you will only be switched onto a monthly plan after your next eye examination. Your next eye examination will be charged at a discounted rate of £60 and we will then move you over onto the eyeQ care plan, when you can begin to take advantage of the benefits this gives you.
