Eye Refraction Examination
Refraction is a standard eye examination that is used to determine your ability to see at all distances. The optometrist/optician will be able to determine if you have normal 6/6 vision, myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, or presbyopia. The results of this eye test will be used to determine the prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lenses, including whether you require bi-focal or progressive lenses.
Contact Lens Examination
As contact lenses are medical devices, it is mandatory to have an eye examination and consultation by a qualified optometrist before contact lens can be prescribed. During the consultation, your eligibility will be assessed and the right contact lenses for your lifestyle will be recommended.
First-time Contact Lens Consultation
During the consultation, your eligibility will be assessed & the right contact lenses for your lifestyle will be recommended. The optometrist will educate on insertion & removal of contact lenses, the benefits and risks of contact lens wear, as well as advising on proper techniques on the safe use, cleaning & storage of the lenses.
Tonometry (Eye Pressure Test)
A tonometry test measures the pressure inside your eye, which is called intraocular pressure (IOP). This test is used to check for glaucoma, an eye disease that can cause blindness by damaging the nerve in the back of the eye (optic nerve). Damage to the optic nerve may be caused by a buildup of fluid that does not drain properly out of the eye.
Undilated Fundus Photography
The fundus is the back of the eye and includes the retina, optic nerve, and retinal blood vessels. The fundus is photographed through an undilated pupil, providing a color picture of the back of the eye. This procedure is brief, only taking a minute or two, and painless.
