Primary Eyecare provides NHS funded eyecare services across large parts of England. The services are available from the majority of local opticians, from the smallest independent practice to the largest national chains.

Cycloplegic refraction is a procedure used to determine a person’s complete refractive error by temporarily relaxing the muscles that aid in focusing the eye. Cycloplegic eye drops are used to temporarily relax the ciliary body, or focusing muscle, of the eyes.
