Depending on your eye care needs, we can tailor your examination to each patient so you get testing that’s right for you.
YOUR EYE HEALTH
Your eyesight is precious and taking care of your health is the best way to keep your vision clear. Your eyes are affected by everything from your diet to how much time you spend with screens – we aim to keep all of our patients updated with information about how to take care of their eyes as well as providing them with excellent products to keep their eyes healthy.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN YOUR EYE EXAMINATION
An eye examination is not just a test to see if you need a prescription but a complete assessment of your eyesight and eye health. Your optometrist will ask you some questions about your health and family history before carrying out tests to check your vision, assess the health of the different parts of your eyes and screen for eye conditions. At the end of the exam, they will explain any recommendations for vision solutions and professional or personal eye care.
ENHANCED EYECARE WITH oct TECHNOLOGY
Ocular Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a type of eye scan designed to examine the back of the eyes that cannot be easily examined by other equipment. This allows your optometrist to carry out a more in-depth examination of your eye health and look for eye conditions that may still be in the earliest stages of development. It’s up to you whether you would like an OCT scan but they are particularly recommended if you are experiencing symptoms, are over 60 or have a family history of eye conditions like glaucoma or diabetes.
