What to Expect
Our eye examination usually last about half an hour but will advise you if you need any extra tests and how long these will take.
We have a general routine, we perform for every patient, but as we like to treat every patient as an individual, the optometrist will tailor the examination to satisfy your own specific needs and requirements.
As well as including all tests to check for your sight and see if any vision correction is required(e.g spectacles, contact lenses) we also check for any potential eye diseases like glaucoma, cataract, macular degeneration to name a few.
Our equipment includes a digital retinal camera which allows us to take photographs of the inside of your eyes so even small abnormalities can be detected, recorded and compared in future checks. Combining this with modern examination techniques we can ensure all is done to help prevent unnecessary deterioration to your sight and eye health. Other tests we will carry out include binocular vision assessment(how well the eyes work together), peripheral visual fields analysis and an intraocular pressure measurement which is one of the most important checks for any presence of glaucoma.
The optometrist will always explain the results of the various tests and you can ask any questions you may have. The recommendation given at the end of the eye examination by the optometrist will take into account factors such as your working environment, lifestyle and any leisure pursuits you have, so we can meet your visual needs in the best possible way. We will also recommend whether you would benefit from the use of contact lenses.
How often should one have an Eye Examination
We advise regular eye examinations for everyone including children even when you are not experiencing difficulties. Normally those who are using the computer on a regular basis are advised to get checked every year, however the maximum time between eye test should be two years.
