You’ll then have a series of checks using the latest, advanced eye care technology, including retinal photography, which can take a picture of the back of your eye.As well as diagnosing if you need help with your vision, we’ll check your eyes for signs of serious eye conditions, like glaucoma or macular degeneration.
EyeTestsean@foresight-media.co.uk2016-10-24T18:55:17+00:00Did you know your eye exam could also flag up other medical conditions – like high blood pressure, risk of stroke and even some brain tumours. We’ll look for any signs of these, as part of our routine examination of your eyes.
Your optometrist will look after your whole eye exam. We really believe in offering you top quality eye care and taking our time to do it properly. Rest assured that if there are any problems, we will spot them. Firstly, you’ll be asked some questions about your overall eye health, family history and any changes in your vision since your last check-up.
Once the tests have been done, you can discuss the findings with your optometrist and ask any questions you like. If you need help with your eyesight, you’ll be given a prescription for the lenses. Of course, we hope there won’t be any serious problems, but if there are, you can be sure we’ll discuss them with you clearly and sensitively. Assuming that everything is OK, after the eye exam you’ll have a chance to sit down and chat with a member of our dispensing team about your options for eyewear, if a new prescription is required. Not everyone’s sight changes from year to year, so we’ll give you honest advice about this too.
