During the eye exam the optometrist will be checking for any signs of eye disease, and if any risk is detected you may be required to return for further tests. 

  • Your eye exam may include the following depending on a quick initial assessment or based on your concerns:
  • Visual acuity test – measures how well you can see at different distances
  • Refraction test – determines your prescription for glasses or contact lenses
  • Eye muscle movement test – checks for problems with eye movements and coordination
  • Slit-lamp examination – uses a microscope to examine the front of your eye, including the cornea, iris, and lens
  • Dilated eye exam – involves using eye drops to widen your pupils, allowing the doctor to see the inside of your eye and check for any signs of disease or damage.

Some of the most common eye problems that can be detected include:

  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Astigmatism
  • Presbyopia
  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Macular degeneration

Detecting these problems early on can prevent vision loss and other complications. Additionally, eye exams can also detect underlying health conditions that may affect your eyes, such as high blood pressure or diabetes.

Remember, your eye exam is similar like a warrant of fitness, but for your eyes – if you keep on top of it and come in every one to two years, hopefully you’ll get all the boxes ticked but if not, at least you are onto the problem and it will be managed promptly by the experts!
