What Should I Expect in an Eye Exam?

March, 2019

Our eyes don’t just allow us to see our surroundings in colour, they can be the window to our body’s health. Fortunately, the tests to examine eyes are quick, painless and non-invasive:

  • Eye chart test to check vision

  • Eye muscle tests to check alignment.

  • Refraction testing to see if prescription glasses/contact lenses are needed

  • Ocular examination to assess lids, cornea, iris, lens and retina of each eye

  • Intraocular pressure, Visual fields, Colour vision & 3D vision tests ..

At Royal London Optometry we’ve invested in the newest technology and equipment from the world’s most innovative eye companies in Germany, Japan & the UK, to ensure that our clients get the most thorough eye examination possible. That’s why we offer OCT Retinal Scans, Retinal Photography, Computerised Vision Chart, Auto-Phoroptor and advanced prescreening tests.

  • Optical Coherence Tomography [3D OCT]

    is like an ultrasound for the eye that shows a cross-section of the many tissue layers of the retina. It can spot early signs of glaucoma and macula degeneration: 5-10 years ahead of normal testing.

  • Digital retinal Photography

    creates a digital image of the retina, to help detect retinal detachments, high blood pressure & diabetes [from retinopathy].

Prevention is better than cure...Along with a complete lifestyle evaluation, we’ll discuss simple options such as prescription glasses or contact lenses; and if there is an underlying health issue, we can offer advice on diet, prevention or referral to your GP or Ophthalmologist.
