About Aves

Where are we based?

We are located in the center of Ware High Street at No 61, the pink building with the clock.

There are numerous car parks located near the practice, Ware Library, Kibes Lane and Tesco, along with local bus routes stopping near by and Ware train station only a 10 minute walk away.

Please allow plenty of time for your eye examination, 40 mins, and choosing spectacles if required.

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.
