We rely on our sight in all aspects of daily life and therefore an eye examination is essential to monitor eye health and maintain the best vision possible. We strive to provide the most thorough eye examinations using latest technology and equipment so you, the patient have full confidence in our findings and recommended management.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Our eye examinations usually last about half an hour but we will advise you if you require any extra specific tests and how long these may take. We have a general routine we perform for every patient but as we like to treat every patient as an individual the optician will tailor the examination similarly, which guarantees you a thorough examination executed smoothly, keeping you as relaxed as possible.
As well as including all tests to check for your sight and to see if any vision correction is required (e.g. spectacles, contact lenses) we also check for any potential eye disease like Glaucoma, Cataract, Macular degeneration to name a few.
The optician will always explain the results of the various assessments and you will be given every opportunity to ask any questions you may have. The recommendations given at the end of the eye examination by the optician 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.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU HAVE AN EYE TEST?
We advise regular eye examinations for everyone including children even when you are not experiencing any difficulties. In accordance with national guidelines the recommended intervals are set out in the table below:
National guidlines for eye tests
The above are general guidelines but if it clinically required an eye examination may be advised more frequently, the optician will advise you of this.
