What happens in an eye exam
As optometrists we examine all part of your vision and eye health. A full eye health examination includes:
- A thorough case history
- Internal eye examination
- External eye examination
- A test of how clearly you see
- How well your eyes work together as a team
- How well you see colour
What if we find a vision problem
If we detect problems, we may recommend glasses, contact lenses, eye exercises, prescription eye drops or even referral for eye surgery.
Many serious eye conditions don't have obvious symptoms. Some eye diseases only show symptoms when the condition is advanced and difficult, or even impossible, to treat.
A comprehensive eye exam provides the full assurance of good vision and eye health that a quick vision check or a school vision screening cannot. If you don't already have an optometrist you don't need a referral to book an exam.
