THE IMPORTANCE OF
AN EYE EXAMINATION
Regular eye tests are a crucial component of your personal healthcare and are essential as they can detect underlying health problems as well as help maintain good vision.
As a general rule, these are normally carried out every two years or more frequently if suggested by our Optometrists.
It is recommended that children have annual eye examinations which are free for children under 16 or students under 19 years of age and in full time education.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT
Before the examination begins, our Optometrist will ask a number of questions about your current and previous eye health, any family history of eye health concerns, any medications you are taking, and the type of work you do as these all can affect your eye health.
The Optometrist will then begin to asses your current prescription and vision with a series of tests and checks including asking you to read letters of decreasing size on a test chart and looking at your eye in greater detail with a microscope or ophthalmoscope.
Occasionally, it may be necessary to dilate the pupils using drops. This can help us detect abnormalities such as diabetes, high blood pressure, glaucoma and more.
