Our Eye Tests Explained
We tailor eye examinations at our practice near Walton-on-Thames around the individual needs of each customer. Trained optometrists use state-of-the-art equipment to gain the most accurate results from eye tests. To give you an idea what to expect from eye examinations, we’ve provided a brief explanation below about the different components.
History and Symptoms
Prior to eye tests, our friendly specialists discuss any ongoing problems you may be experiencing with your eyesight. They also talk to you about your general health because some eye conditions relate to current medical treatments or personal lifestyle choices. Telling us about your work and recreational activities also helps us to build a picture of your visual requirements.
Full Eyewear Assessment
The next phase of our eye examinations determines your current use of spectacles and contact lenses. We make an accurate assessment based on existing visual aids and symptoms to determine whether current treatments are exactly right for customers in Weybridge, Cobham, Esher, Molesey, Oxshott, Claygate and the surrounding areas.
Our eye tests include refraction testing to determine whether optical lenses will be suitable for correcting your current symptoms. This test includes near vision examinations for reading, distance vision examinations for driving or watching television, and intermediate eye examinations to assess the suitability of optical lenses for work or computer use.
Oculomotor balance testing provides a thorough examination of your eye muscles to ensure co-ordination and comfortable vision over any distance.
During eye examinations at our practice, which is close to Walton-on-Thames and Weybridge, an irregular pupil reflex may be an indication of neurological issues. Our experts check to ensure your eyes react in a normal manner when subjected to light.
If we locate excessive pressure inside the eyes during an eye test, it may be indicative of glaucoma; an abnormality that could result in a loss of vision if left unattended. Under most circumstances, this examination is only administered for the over 40’s or patients with a history of glaucoma in their families.
Visual Field Testing
Another symptom that suggests the presence of glaucoma is a deterioration within the field of vision. It is important that we analyse the all-round vision of our Cobham, Esher and Weybridge customers during eye examinations. In addition, our practice in Hersham also checks your peripheral eyesight performance.
Opthalmoscopy is a vital part of eye tests and evaluates the overall health of your eyes to determine conditions such as diabetes, cataracts and hypertension. We safely and accurately monitor all of these conditions for clients in Walton-on-Thames and the surrounding areas.
The final part of our eye examinations is a clear and concise explanation of your vision and overall eye health. We also provide a detailed optical prescription for your perusal. At the end of the test, we’ll provide a professional evaluation of your visual requirements.
