REGULAR EYE EXAMS

Regular eye examinations are important to keep your vision sharp and clear throughout your life.
They're also useful in identifying the presence of other medical conditions.

Myopie and Hyperopia

Do license plates seem blurry to you? Is it hard to see people off in the distance? These might be early signs of myopia.

Presbyopia

True, it’s hard to accept, but as we age, the lenses of our eyes gradually lose their flexibility. Find out what that means to your eyesight and how you can correct it.

Astigmatism

Do you find it hard to distinguish horizontal and vertical lines? Is reading difficult? Do you get headaches more frequently? You might have astigmatism.

YOUR EYE EXAM

A regular exam generally takes around half an hour, and checks many different elements of your vision.

Your optometrist will measure your visual acuity—the sharpness of your vision and your ability to see fine details,
and the level of refraction—how the eye bends light onto the retina.

Near- and far-sightedness and astigmatism are common eye problems resulting from refractive errors.
Your field of vision will also be checked to measure the extent of the area you can see.

The exam will also verify the health and function of the eyelid, pupil, retina, sclera, conjunctiva, iris, lens and cornea of each eye. 

Muscle functions will be tested to see how well the muscles surrounding the eyes are working.

Lastly, your optometrist will measure fluid pressure. If fluid is not draining away from the eyes properly, pressure will build up.
Excessive pressure on the eye can result in glaucoma.

DETAILED EYE TESTS

Advanced measuring equipment can be used to calculate a range of factors that are unique to each individual, including head shape and size,
the size of and distance between the pupils, visual habits and behaviour; and how the eyes move around. 
These parameters are taken into account to ensure lenses are a precise fit and provide the clearest vision.

All of these tests are straightforward and painless.
