Your eye examination will be tailored for you – your lifestyle, health, family history and symptoms.

We will view the eye externally and internally, measure your vision, refractive error and muscle balance. In most cases we will take photographs, check your fields of vision and eye pressures. If you are over 70 years of age we strongly recommend further assessment of your macular areas by OCT or MPD measurement.

Do not be concerned if you or the person you may accompany have communication or reading difficulties as we will use more suitable methods such as asking to sign or identify shapes.

Please bring with you or pre-advise details of your medications, any relevant ocular or family history of problems such as glaucoma or macular degeneration, and if you are having problems with a particular visual task, information about its size, distance from you and if possible its position relative to your central eyeline. There is a pre-exam questionnaire attached which you may find useful.
