Welcome to Alexander Kobrin Opticians
Alexander Kobrin is owned by two Optometrists Clyde Alexander and Brian Kobrin. Brian and Clyde studied together in Johannesburg and have been in practice for over 20 years. Clyde started the practice in Potters Bar in 1998 and Brian joined in 2001. They share the same philosophy in that they want to offer their patients the very best in eye care.
Measuring eye sight and prescription with an emphasis on the health of the eyes. Contact Lens assessment, fitting, management and aftercare.
An assessment of the ability of the eyes to align, track and focus. Essential for efficient reading.
Pattern glare and the influence of colour and coloured filters in reading is investigated.
Three dimensional imaging of the back and front of the eye. This instrument provides a foundation of readings that can be used at future visits to compare and prevent eye problems from developing.
Achieving optimum health of the eye and vision is our utmost importance
We rely on our sight in all aspects of daily life and therefore an eye examination is essential to monitor eye health and maintain the best vision possible.
We strive to provide the most thorough eye examinations using the latest technology and equipment so you, the patient, have full confidence in our findings and recommended management.
