About Aves

Where are we based?

You’ll find us located on the High Street in Ware, Herts (No 61), the pink building with the clock. Our practice has 4 examination rooms and comfortable waiting area plus plenty of spectacles and sunglasses to choose from as well as comprehensive range of accessories and eye care products.

There are numerous car parks located near the practice. (Tesco car park offers 2 hours free parking – ideal if you have an appointment), or alternatively, the Ware Library car park and Kibes Lane car park offer 30 mins free parking (or pay and display for longer periods).

Please do make sure that you allow for plenty of time when you have an eye examination appointment as occasionally we may not run fully to time and some examinations can take slightly longer than 40 mins.

Public transport is also available with a bus stop right near the practice, and the Ware train station (approximately 10 mins walk).

We have a fabulous lift which gives our practice full disabled access.

Eye & Contact Lens Test

Our comprehensive eye tests and contact lens checks are performed by qualified optometrists using the very latest equipment.

A test lasts approximately 40 mins (in most cases) and is completely pain-free.

Our friendly team will ensure that you are comfortable throughout the test, and will advise on changes in your prescription (if applicable) and available options for lenses/spectacles.
