ROGER POPE & PARTNERS: reassuring, individual and highly professional service at Royal Warrant-holding independent opticians
HAVING REGULAR EYE EXAMINATIONS is the best way to maintain the comfort and health of your eyes. But on occasion, you want the reassurance of something a little more thorough than your regular eye test on the high street. Those seeking a warm and welcoming environment are in safe hands at Roger Pope and Partners. After 20 years of working at and managing various prestigious opticians in the Harley Street area, Roger Pope opened his own practice on New Cavendish Street in 1987. Since then, the practice has grown from strength to strength, and was granted a Royal Warrant of Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen in 2006 and HRH Prince of Wales in January 2014.
It’s not difficult to see why. Today, Roger Pope and Partners have a dedicated team of five dispensing opticians and three highly experienced optometrists. Their consulting rooms beneath the shop incorporate the very latest technology, and benefit from an on-site optical lab.
Lasting a full hour, my thorough eye examination by impressive optometrist Dr Elaine Anderson began with various questions regarding any sight concerns I had. The extensive examination procedures that followed included these steps:
• Zeiss Clarus 500 ultra-widefield true colour retinal imaging
• Digital scanning with a 3D ocular coherence tomography (OCT) camera
• Field of vision tests with a Zeiss Field Analyser
• Eye analysis with the Zeiss iProfiler
• Microscopic examination with a slit lamp
• Subjective refraction
• Tonometer intraocular pressure checks using the I Care Tonometer
Each of the steps only lasted a minute or two, and Dr Anderson assured me that these were the procedures required for a clean bill of optical health. The practice has invested in the latest diagnostic equipment to ensure that your eye test is the most thorough and accurate available anywhere. Thankfully, she didn’t find any major issues and could confirm that my prescription was indeed appropriate for my eyesight.
Roger Pope and Partners has close working relationships with Harley Street ophthalmologists. So, should your optometrist need to make a referral, clients can be assured it will be to a member of their network of trusted specialists, who all have international reputations built over years of experience in their specialised field of expertise.
The shop displays an exceptional range of eyewear on sale, including designer brands with options in solid gold, diamonds, natural horn and wood, along with more contemporary options. Opticians are on hand to help you find your ideal frames and take great care to ensure the fitting is perfect.
Returning time and time again for the outstanding level of service that the practice is now famous for, clients range from well-known personalities to Ambassadors and company CEOs, many of whom require total privacy at appointments. On that basis, Practice Manager and Director, Priti Kotecha is delighted to discuss individual requirements and arrange a visit on an exclusive use basis.
