Full Eye Examination for Adults
Adults are recommended to have their eyes checked by an optometrists yearly, and 6-monthly for adults who have systemic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure.
Digital eye strains, headaches, cataracts etc can be detected with an optometrist eye check.
A full eye examination for adults would include:
- Refraction (checking of power such as long-, short-sightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia)
- Binocular vision assessment (detecting digital eye strains, lazy eyes, squint eyes etc)
- Colour vision assessment
- Anterior eye health assessment (checking of the health of corneas, eyelids, eye lashes etc, this is especially required for contact lens wearers)
- Eye pressure (to determine if it is too high, or too low)
- Posterior ocular health (this is where we see if there is diabetes or other health conditions that can affect the eyes)
