All Aston University staff and family members are welcome to book an eye examination and contact lens check among other services that we offer at Aston University Eye and Hearing Clinics.
For more information regarding our services or to book an appointment, please call 0121 204 3900, email eyecare@aston.ac.uk or visit our website  Aston Eye & Hearing Clinics.

We are the largest optometry teaching centre in the world. Our students are taught in the clinic under close supervision by experienced practitioners. Appointments are longer than typically experienced on the ‘high street’ as every aspect of eye/ear health and vision/hearing is checked. These clinics allow the next generation of optometrists and audiologists to gain valuable clinical experience and for patients to receive thorough eye/ear care, using advanced instrumentation, in a comfortable and spacious setting.

Our appointments are available from October through to March.
