Eye Health Examinations
What is an Eye Health Examination?
An Eye Health Examination is a comprehensive evaluation of your eyes to assess both vision and overall eye health. It typically includes the following components:
Refraction: This determines whether you need glasses or any corrective lenses to achieve clear vision.
Examination of the front of the eye: The eyelids and cornea are inspected for any abnormalities, infections, or inflammation.
Lens evaluation: The presence of cataracts, which is a clouding of the lens, is assessed.
Examination of the back of the eye: The retina and optic disc are examined using specialised instruments to check for signs of conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, or optic nerve abnormalities.
Assessment of other eye structures: The overall health of other parts of the eye, such as the iris and blood vessels, is examined to identify any potential issues.
