At Clarke & Roskrow Styling Opticians we allow 50 minutes for your consultation. We appreciate that your time is valuable, and we want to make sure we get things right for you first time. A lot of our clients are professionals themselves, and they choose Clarke & Roskrow Styling Opticians because they want to see an expert. They want to see someone they can trust and have confidence in.

The reason our appointments are 50 minutes is not only to allow for the technical elements of doing an eye exam; you can do an eye exam in about 20-25 minutes, which is what most places do.

The extra time we spend with you makes for a more relaxed and enjoyable experience. Our Optometrists can explore more thoroughly your specific vision needs, which helps us to give you the best advice and recommendations.


We take the extra time to learn more about YOU, and what your particular needs and preferences are. That means you’ll get the most effective advice and solutions because it is tailored specifically to you.

An Enhanced Experience

At Clarke & Roskrow Styling Opticians, we believe in offering our clients not only the best eyewear and prescription lenses available, but also the highest standard of eye examination. We have made a significant investment in our diagnostic technology, being one of the first practices locally to invest in a state-of-the-art, hospital-standard Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) scanner. This technology is a bit like the eye’s version of an MRI-scan or ultrasound, in that it provides a much more detailed, 3-dimensional assessment of the central retina and the optic nerve.

The three main benefits of the OCT scan are:

  1. It provides additional peace of mind and reassurance that your eyes are as healthy as we think they are;
  2. It allows us to detect signs of eye disease at a much earlier stage, often years before we can detect problems with more traditional methods of examination. Early detection of eye disease allows for better protection of your vision; and
  3. It provides a permanent, digital record of how your eyes look at a specific moment in time, providing a baseline for all future visits. Uniquely, the OCT software can analyse subsequent scans to detect signs of change that may be the indication of early eye disease.

Since introducing the OCT in 2016, we have made it a standard part of our private eye examination.  Our clients who are eligible for a NHS-funded sight-test can also benefit from this more enhanced service by paying a supplementary fee for the OCT scan. About 70% of our NHS-eligible clients choose to invest in their eyecare with an OCT scan.

A Nice Place to Visit

Most eye examinations are conducted in small, cramped, stuffy dark rooms. But not here. We are fortunate enough to have a beautiful building on Church Street, “the Bond Street of the East Midlands.” Our award-winning building is every bit as different as everything else that we do! A visit to Clarke & Roskrow Styling Opticians is more like a visit to a boutique hotel than an optician, making your experience with us a more enjoyable one. Nothing is rushed, and we take the time to get to know our clients, many of whom we greet on a first-name basis.

Eyewear Styling Consultation

Once your eye exam consultation is complete, we’ll offer you a FREE no-obligation Eyewear Styling Consultation if you are interested in new eyewear.

This is another professional consultation with one of our Dispensing team. We show you the range of eyewear collections we have available, and we can advise on the best shapes, styles and colours to suit you. The team will show you all of the options and possibilities available to you from our carefully selected, hand-curated collection of frames. So, if you are interested in new eyewear, this free consultation will be helpful and informative but most of all enjoyable, even if you decide to purchase your eyewear elsewhere.
