downsmail.co.uk SEEING beyond the offers


Staying focused isn’t just about keeping your eye on the ball . . . caring for your sight is so much more – it’s the window to your inner health.


That’s the message from the team at Kings Hill Opticians, whose two full-time optometrists pride themselves on providing a thorough investigation with


a bespoke optical solution for all your visual needs.


The practice is led by Mr Satvinder Shoker, who is also the lead optometrist at Maidstone Hospital, where he works alongside ophthalmologists in glaucoma, diabetes and wet macula degeneration services. Mr Shoker also specialises in fitting complex contact lenses, helping partially sighted patients with alternative ways of seeing, and looking after young one’s visual requirements.


Now in practice for over 10 years – at purpose-built premises in Liberty Square, Kings Hill – his practice is one of just three in Kent capable of monitoring treated wet macula degeneration, which once robbed patients of their sight. This is just one of the cutting-edge, hospital-standard services offered at this practice, but not on the high street.


Mr Shoker said: “All clients are given a 40-minute examination with our optometrists


who will monitor the health of their eyes and take the time to discuss an individual’s needs, ensuring they receive the best solution to correct their vision.”


As an independent – or “freehold” - practice that includes access to any make of spectacle lens, frame or contact lens from around the


globe. Staff are also happy to advise on the implications and benefits of refractive laser surgery and other sight solutions you may not have heard about, such as EyeDream contact lenses: these are lenses that you wear overnight and remove in the morning, leaving you free from spectacles or contacts for the whole day.


Mr Shoker said: “For many new patients it is a real eye-opener to learn that there are many more solutions than those offered on the high street, which may better fit their particular visual needs. So often, patients will say they have struggled with varifocals or don’t want to try them. Most of the time, this is because they have only been offered


a limited ‘own brand’ choice of lenses, when, in fact, there are over 100 types of varifocals to choose from.


“Here, patients don’t see a different optometrist every time, but a qualified optometrist who will monitor their vision and visual health each time they visit. This continuity ensures accuracy, which can help in the early detection of conditions and treatment.”


The practice offers free sight tests to the over-60s, under-16s and those on benefits.
