Welcome to Clear View at Eastgate

Mucklow and Hardy was founded in 1968 by Maurice Mucklow and Reg Hardy.

In 2017 Clear View Opticians purchased Mucklow and Hardy as Annabelle’s second practice.  With a fresh approach to optometry in mind she refurbished Mucklow and Hardy to become Clearview at Eastgate, a boutique optician practice. The main focus on luxury eyewear and attentive informative eye examinations.

We are excited to offer OCT at our Eastgate practice. Ocular Coherence Tomography – (OCT) is an emerging state of the art technology for performing high-resolution cross-sectional imaging of the retinal. OCT is analogous to ultrasound imaging, except that it uses light instead of sound. OCT can provide cross-sectional images of tissue structure on the micron scale in situ and in real time allowing us to identify minute changes which can indicate the onset of eye disease.

Due to the advanced state of the art technology at Eastgate, this is where Annabelle provides her GOS18 Triage
and Treat Service for minor eye conditions. She has been accredited by the NHS after undertaking additional training to be able to assess and treat more complex conditions for example dry eye, flashes and floaters, macular degeneration and glaucoma to name but a few.
