Opticare Eye Test

Visiting your Opticians is as important as visiting your Doctor or Dentist, so when you visit Opticare we make sure it’s a relaxing experience.

During your eye test our Expert Optometrists will check your vision and also the health of your eyes. By doing this it is possible to detect other health conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes. Usually eye tests are recommended every 2 years, but certain people may need tests more regularly. Your Opticare Optician will be able to advise you on your individual needs.

Glaucoma Screening

Glaucoma Screening is carried out as a part of your professional eye examination. It helps us to make certain you can see well, your eyes work properly together and are healthy and free of disease. This test involves:

  • Measurement of the intra-ocular pressures.
  • Examination of the optic disc.
  • Visual field assessment.

Early detection and treatment is essential to prevent or delay the progression of more serious visual problems. As most early forms of glaucoma are without symptoms, regular screening, especially with increase in age, is essential to maintain healthy eyes.
