What happens at your appointment
A comprehensive eye test takes about 30 minutes. If you feel you have complex requirements, it would be best to let us know when you book your eye exam, and we can ensure additional time is allocated do you.
First, your optometrist will have an in-depth discussion with you regarding your vision concerns and your visual requirements.
They will ask you questions about your health and if you have had previous eye issues. Some eye problems run in families, so your optometrist will ask if there is anything in your family history.
Your optometrist will take into account your daily needs – work and leisure time.
We recommend that every adult and child should have their eyes examined by an optometrist every one to two years, regardless of whether you’re experiencing any vision difficulties. Most eye problems that can cause long term difficulty have few initial symptoms.
Your vision will be assessed through reading charts and if you have glasses or contact lenses, they will be checked on how they facilitation your vision.
Your optometrist will determine if you are suitable for contact lenses according to your prescription and tailor a solution that is right for you and your eye health.
An eye test also provides a thorough examination of your eye health and gives us vital insights about your general health. Many eye conditions may be symptom-free for some time – making an eye test vital for early diagnosis.
If you have not worn contact lenses before, we’ll teach you how to insert and remove the lenses, and how to care and maintain your eyes and lenses.
