With each eye examination it is our job to help you see as clearly as possible and to insure that your eye health is at its best so that you may continue to see clearly for many years to come!
We assess each patient for glaucoma, cataract and a host of other eye diseases. Our optometrists will perform a thorough examination of the front of the eyes (lids, lashes, sclera, conjunctiva, cornea, iris, lens). Then move on to looking at the back of the eyes (optic nerve, retina, blood vessels, vitreous). We routinely measure intraocular pressure on those above 40 years of age and on others on indication, for example a family history of glaucoma or on request. We will also take an OCT image and/or digital photograph of the back of the eyes so we can accurately monitor for changes in the future. Some patients may also be requested to return for a computerised visual field assessment.
