A sight test is not just about glasses, it’s about checking that everything is working properly. Most adults should have a routine eye test every 2 years. Children,diabetics and people with a close family history of glaucoma should be checked more frequently, usually every 12 months. Older eyes are more at risk of problems such as cataract, macula degeneration and glaucoma and so they also may need more frequent check-ups.
We now have an Optical Coherence Tomographer ( OCT). The OCT allows us to scan the layers of your retina and build up a 3D picture of your eyes. We don’t need to touch your eyes , you just need to look into the OCT and focus on a little green light as the OCT does its scans. The results are ready straight away and we can show you the back of your eyes in 3D!
