About our Eye Exams

EYE EXAMINATION: An eye examination should be part of everyone’s normal health routine and is an important part of looking after your eyes. Our eye examination consists of:

  • Prescription check
  • Complete eye health check. Our optometrist will examine the front and the back of your eye
  • Scans and photographs of the back of the eye (OCT)
  • Ocular pressure

CONTACT LENS FITTING: A contact lens fitting is an appointment to assess your suitability for contact lenses. If you haven’t had an eye exam with us before, you must bring your current prescription. The contact lens fitting is composed of:

  • Surface of the eye health check and measurements. This helps us pick the most appropriate contact lens for you
  • We choose a trial lens and assess the general fit of the contact lenses and the vision
  • The end result is the best contact lens with the best prescription

CONTACT LENS AFTERCARE: Before a contact lens aftercare appointment, you are expected to come in wearing contact lenses, for at least an hour before the appointment. A contact lens aftercare appointment involves:

  • General fit of the contact lenses and vision
  • The possible changes we could make to the prescription, to the specification of the contact lenses or even the type of contact lenses.
  • We assess the eye without the contact lenses to make sure everything is healthy.
