Recently I took a little trip up to Convent Garden with Bella to get my eyes checked at Tom Davies Bespoke Opticians. I love taking Bella to Central London because she enjoys every single minute of it. It is really nice to get some mummy daughter time once in a while and this was a great opportunity.
That day, the weather was lovely! I think we had like 32 degrees and it was so sunny so our day was even more enjoyable. We took the tube to Covent Garden and we arrived there straight away.
Sunny and warm Covent Garden
We love all the activities that were around and it was a lovely atmosphere. Tom Davies is located about 5 minutes from the station so it was very easy and quick to get there.
Arriving to Tom Davies in Convent Garden
The staff were lovely and they fully explained the procedure that I was going to have. Little Bella was very excited to be with me as she wanted to see all the big ZEISS machines they had inside the room where they do the eye examinations.
I was getting an eye test and learning all about my eye health and the new technology available to help examine our eyes a little more in depth to make sure they are in the best health they can be.
I didn’t realise how important it was to keep up with eye tests even if you don’t need to wear glasses. During my test, I was amazed at the technology and the equipment used to give my eyes a thorough check up to make sure nothing was missed. I was really impressed by the examination and the service I received. I felt like my eyes were definitely being looked after.

During my examination ZEISS equipment was used to check my eye health. In particular optical coherence tomography was used to scan the layers of my retina to check their health and condition. The technology is sophisticated it can detect eye diseases such as glaucoma as well as any system vascular and neurological conditions that manifest in the eyes.
A ZEISS i.Profiler Plus was also used to perform a corneal topography to map the surface of my eyes. This shows up any abnormalities present in my eyes. This is important for getting the most accurate prescription possible for any glasses so you can get the maximum benefit from wearing the correct lenses. Also, they performed many tests to check for things such as glaucoma, dry eyes, eye diseases or any other conditions which can affect your sight!
Tom Davies Bespoke Service
One thing I did like was the bespoke service for customising the size and fit of your glasses so they fit perfectly to your face and features. But did you know that most standard lenses don’t offer any protection against UV Light? We all know the importance of keeping our bodies and skin healthy and protected from the sun, but what about your eyes? Have you ever thought about protecting your eyes from sun damage? We may wear sunglasses in the summer but is that enough and are our eyes being protected like they need to be? Especially with the gorgeous sunny weather, we have been experiencing lately!
ZEISS UVProtect lenses provide full UV protection for your eyes. You can be confident that by wearing glasses with ZEISS UVProtect lenses you are getting the same protection as premium sunglasses. This is something we could all benefit from as UV light isn’t only present in the summer but all year round too. How many of us wear sunglasses in the winter?
ZEISS takes eye health very seriously and their UVProtect technology shows how they are raising their standards. With only 20% of people wearing sunglasses to protect their eyes, being able to have the same UV protection in a standard clear lens is a game changer making it possible for more people to protect their eyes from further damage that standard lenses may not be able to protect them from.
My New Glasses
Bella and I went back to Covent Garden yesterday to pick up my glasses. I was so excited to see them because I have never chosen glasses with some blue colour so I really wanted to try them on again and see how they finally looked on me!

What do you think?
As soon as they gave them to me, I fell in love immediately because they are so different to anything else I have had in the past. They are modern, unique and trendy looking as well as having ZEISS UV Protect Technology, so what else can I ask for?
I had a great time at Tom Davies, the staff are so lovely and they were so caring towards us. They even gave both my girls (eventhough little Sienna wasn’t there) a bag of sweets! How nice is that? If you are looking to get a very thorough eye examination with the best ZEISS machines, a bespoke service with ZEISS UVProtect technology glasses and treated like a queen, I recommend you to check them out and look for a Tom Davies opticians near to you.
What do you think? Do you wear glasses and have you ever thought about how you can take care of your eyes a little bit more? Protecting your eyes from UV light can help prevent problems in the future by minimising exposure and protecting your eyes keeping them in better condition for as long as possible.
