Your Eye Test Appointment
Everyone should have an eye examination at least once every two years as it is a vital health check. When you visit us at The Eye Zone, we will look after you step by step in your Eye Care journey. To help you understand your Eye Test, we have outlined the stages below:
We will ensure that your confidential customer record is accurate and up-to-date. If you are wearing contact lenses, you may need to remove them before your eyes are tested.
2. Pre-examination Test
Using a Tonometer, we will assess the Intra-Ocular pressure of your eyes. This is important, as high pressure can indicate the early stages of glaucoma, a sight-damaging condition.
The autorefractor takes an electronic measurement of how well your eyes focus and gives the optometrist an indication of your prescription.
3. Your Health and Lifestyle
The optometrist will ask you a series of questions about your health, your family’s health, your work and your lifestyle, to gain a clear understanding of your vision needs.
4. The Eye Test
Our Optometrist will carry out a thorough eye examination using various instruments and techniques to determine the most accurate prescription for your needs and assess the ocular health.
Ocular health can give an indication as to your general health and can pick up conditions such as High Cholesterol, Diabetes, High Blood Pressure.
5. Visual Field Analyser
This is an important check which allows us to pick up any blind spots in your field of vision. This is very important if you have Headaches, Glaucoma or have had a stroke.
Currently,we are the accredited centre for DVLA and carry out visual fields examination on their behalf in Ealing. DVLA may request for this examination prior to issuing a UK driving licence.
6. Discussing Your Needs
